From the title, I was afraid your post was about a new doping scandal in the Tour de France now underway. But it's just about yet another odd guitar, of which the music world seems to have an endless supply.
I couldn't agree more, Git, but good/great musicians listen to many forms of "quality" music. The cross-cultural shadings become an integral part of a musician's development. Bireli is a musician's musician on any level from his technical virtuosity on the guitar to the instinctive creativity of his performance. There are many CG's that could learn from listening to his and others music and the nuances of expression that are such an important aspect of creative music performance versus music as bike riding in the park, so to speak. On a personal note, I began the serious study of CG over 20 years ago based on cross-genre listening to CG's like Segovia, Yepes, Bream, and Diaz and was hooked by the ability for personal expression on a more intimate level than playing with ensembles--the meat and potatoes of my performance past. I hope you at least enjoyed this gifted man. Playing again . . . Rognvald
