A bit of subtle humour for various debates:
The Untenable Argument
My adversary's argument
is not alone malevolent
but ignorant to boot.
He hasn't even got the sense
to state his so-called evidence
in terms I can refute.
Onward and upward: Apoyando scales forever!
There are no adversaries here, relax
Very relaxed...my tongue was in my cheek:
You, sir, you like double speak a lot.
Well, I realize some of those passages in my video should have been played differently
But, lets just concentrate on the sound that the guitar is making, eh? Still not a guitar?
Now, my friend laughed when I said I have been told I have not even bought a guitar. Its like, this is exactly a reason I have to buy guitar like this remotely. In whole Boston there is not a single store where you can try variety of classical guitars, like there is Guitar Emporium for acoustic whatevers
(Guitar centers are stocked with 'high end' acoustics 3k and up...) There are stores with one or two guitars that's it. Now, please don't tell me there are luthiers for that because even online you have to go through such a pain to sell a classical guitar. There is simply much much less demand for this instrument than for acoustic and electric whatevers.
Now, we have a a guy who makes classical...'whatevers' too now because they are little different, sexy you could say, guitars that could attract greater following and lot of you jump at him: Its not a guitar!!! Well, now, who cares man, the way its going, in 20 years you will not sell anything. I realize that everyone is entitled to their opinion but...
Now, these Turkowiak classical guitars are a bit pricey. Its true. If I could suggest something to Mr, Turkowiak it would be this:
I would make a base model that would sell for about 2 to 3k; a model without all these bells and whistles, tubes and resonators because the guitar already has plenty of innovations as it is. The woods, construction, varnish are unique IMHO. The fretboard is asymmetrical and elevated. Maybe I am totally off, but even this soundboard is very thin. He is convoluting all of these elements together because he wants to put all of them in one place, and I think impress us, right? Now, if he offered a simple model and then DEMONSTRATED why tubes and resonators make guitar better, I think he would be able to convince more 'classical' people to buy and try them. I am not suggesting he should mass produce at all, just make a little cheaper version and that would get his point across if indeed he believes that all of these extra elements make guitar better.
