Thank you quavers for your kind comment.I am thankful to the guitarists that have played and continue to play in concert my instruments. Smaro Gregoriadou also who is interpreting in many of the videos at this specific discussion.Smaro will be performing in two concerts in California in November and also she will give a seminar classroom to interested guitarists.Wishing you the best!quavers wrote:I enjoyed listening and watching you play this unusual machine. I mean that only in a complimentary way, as all guitars are machines-that is if they are any good at all. The guitar has morphed many hundreds of times since its earliest beginnings. New and non-traditional are not always good, but hats off to the people who try. The purists are certainly entitled to their opinions, but your guitar is really interesting. I would love to hear some of them played live. Are there any virtosi out there brave enough to play a concert on such unusual instruments?
Thank you Gordito158 for your comment.As much a you imply that the shape of the instrument is of a futuristic nature, I would also like to add for the sake of the tradition that the shape is also so traditional as any other guitar existing in our knowledge. In the 13th century the Guitarra Moresca had a rectangular (oval - in the edges rounded) shape and a long neck. Historically it has been claimed that the Guitarra Moresca is clearly much closer to the lute than to the guitar. However, the rectangular (oval) shape of the Guitarra Moresca is a thirteenth century innovation of the luthiers and players of the time, that also refers back to the ancient Egyptian Nefer and it is not in any way a Kertsopoulos first time innovation or a Mel Gibson or Mad Max innovation, as you kindly comment with a smiley. I enjoyed your comment, but for the sake of the seriousness that this thread has kept please kindly also accept my view which says that this construction of the guitar in this thread is based on the design of the tradition and at the same time it brings forward innovative functions of a pedal and so forth. For the sake of keeping the matters of traditional designs and accomplishments alive it was necessary for me to inform you of the above. Please see below the pictures that prove to us that the 13th century designers and the ancient Egyptian designers are more innovative than what we usually think about them. We usually underestimate them as we do with many other people we associate with.Gordito158 wrote:Looks like a Mel Gibson guitar, (not a Gibson-made guitar)...some sort of back-packing guitar made for a Mad Max movie.
