A never ending practice, when it comes to play Allan’s music … Yet, playing Allan’s music brings me so much joy and peace of mind.
The tune Zarabeth, by the great Allan: one of the most beautiful tunes I know – the theme, the solo changes. Everything. I hope this video can bring some inspiration to others who are "struggling" with Allan’s too.
In this video I’m using four Digitech 2101 GSP Studio Tube Processors, plugged into a mini PA – the "main" devices" in my guitar-rigg.
That 11-stringed guitar is my "main ax" since almost 20 years. The 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 0,060, Eb 0,074, D 0,074, C 0,074.
May the Holdsworthian force be with you …
