Robert Ritchiesse: Proto Cosmos (A. Pasqua), solo improvisation

I’ve seen a couple of improvising-along-Proto Cosmos videos lately. Very inspiring. I thought I might as well give it a shot – with headache and all. Well, hopefully I can inspire people back.
Just a few solo rounds, just for fun …

The gear in my guitar rig is as follows:

– Yamaha MGP16X mixer board
– Yamaha full range-speakers, active DXR12 x 2
– Digitech 2101 GSP Studio Tube x 6
– Klark Teknik EQ x 2
– BBE 882 Sonic Maximizer x 6
– CLE 8.0 x 2
– Palmer Triage Amp Selector x 2
– Allan Holdsworth Overdrive Boost
– Strymon Big Sky reverb
– Electro-Harmonix Synth 9 x 2
– Korg XVP 20
– Control One x 2

The 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 0,060, Eb 0,074, D 0,074, C 0,074.
