Rob Guz: Funnels - Allan Holdsworth theme on 11-stringed guitar



In this video, I’m checking out – step by step – my new (PA-based) guitar-rigg (with my 4 Digitech 2101 and other sound source devices too). And why not check it out by playing one of my favorite-theme: Funnels by Allan Holdsworth? =)
Of course, I’m playing that theme in my own way, with bass-string and all ;) with the thumb-technique in lute music: to play a bass string, and right after plucked the next one, get right back with the thumb and "mute" the previous bass-note.
That 11-stringed guitar in the video is my "main ax" since almost 20 years. That guitar was made by luthiers on my commission and from my performance requirement. The tuning system, from "top to bottom" followed by string dimensions: g 0,007, d 0,010, bb 0,013, f 0,018w, C 0,026, G 0,036, D 0,046, G 0,062, Eb 0,074, D 0,074, C 0,074.
