Martin does a great job demonstrating different styles that could be used. The last I think is a flat pick! He is so versital to do this, got to love it. I would love to try this guitar for about a month to see if my talent level is worthy. Steve

Even if I'm not worthy, it is just another CF work of art!

thanks for all your kind words!

Alistair Hay has been so kind to lend me the 'Synergy' to test it extensively and i've recorded a bunch of videos with it. I'm more than surprised with this instrument. It really blew my mind! I'll be posting more videos during this and the next weeks. Alistair has been perfecting all his instruments and this is flat impressive. i'll be posting a full review pretty soon too

PK -

That guitar IS you! Your music really comes alive on that instrument. Tremendous playing going on in that video. Truly an amazing instrument, and in your hands, stunning.

PK, be kind to the rest of us. Performance notes (tunings, progressions, etc.) will be more than welcome.

PK,

The harp guitar puts you at a new level, one that you clearly excel at, and that lets your music sing. Keep the videos coming!

I'm not normally impressed with YT demos (by and large), especially on instruments that are somewhat unique.

This demo/video changed my mind.

Quite nice...and that *is* an understatement!

Thank you, Martin.

Martin,

WOW! As the saying goes... "I guess I can't play the thing anymore... I guess I'll put legs on and make it a coffee table!"

Great playing. Cool instrument.
