Saturday Guitar

Holy Crap! A 27 string guitar. So what would Grieg say?

Thanks to Stine for sending me a link to this dude.

The Electric Light Orchestra did a version of Hall of the Mountain King back in the 70's. It was one of my favorites then and this was a neat variation.

What a performer!
I think ol' Grieg would be pretty happy with that interpretation.

Here's one of Pat Metheny on 42-string guitar:

It's good--but I like the Keith Medley one better.

The other vid that pops up after this one where he plays "Ancestors" is even better.

craiger - And I haven't restrung my 12 string guitar in years because it takes too long to string and tune. I'd hate to have to restring and tune this sucker.
