Thanks Nate. Pat is one of my absolute favorite modern composers - one of these days I hope he actually sits down and composes something for that incredible instrument.
I see 2 new Muriel videos up as well.


and 2 of Eric Loy.
Would readers like to see a permanent "Videos" section listing all these Youtube and other clips?

Hey Gregg,

 

The way that Metheny played the Pikaso reminded me of how one might go about playing your Knutsen zither harp guitar... Then again Metheny was plugged in. I wonder if tapped bass notes would be very loud on the Knutsen.

 

Also, I'm all for a video/link section.

 

-Brad

Hey folks,

 

I was just watching a copy of the Metheny DVD Speaking of Now Live the other night and he does do a piece on that instrument as part of that concert.

 

Take care!

That is a really great idea to put a video section.  That was my intention with the previous forum, was to have one place to put all the previous found videos and add any new ones found.  By the way, that is a much nicer video of Pat and his Pikasso harp guitar.  Great find, thanks!

Nate, thanks for posting the video link. As you know, it comes from the TV show "Sessions at West 54th Street." Some of the performances from that short-lived program eventually made it onto DVD but the Metheny performance, for some reason, didn't. Hopefully, it will see the light of day at some point. I know it's not HG related, but I also hope to some day see the Richard Thompson performance surface on DVD.

 

I used to have a VHS copy of the Metheny performance but it got taped over with some cartoon program for my son. Grrrrrrrrrr.

Well, only 2 of you asked, but I think more might enjoy it.

New page off the main Players page. Quite a fair amount of stuff, if not always (OK, never) the best quality.
I'll expect everyone to send me any new additions.
I stumbled across a short clip of Hedges playing his Knutsen, and an intriguing new electric HG (his own) player from Poland.

More Videos...

The Cure
Lullaby (acoustic version with a Schrammel guitar and playing the bass strings)


The Tea Party
Shadows On The Mountain Side
Great Video and a great song, although no bass notes.


Shadows On The Mountain Side (Live in Germany) He does play a bass note in the wonderful Robbie Robertson style at the end.


On their Alhambra album there is a media section where Jeff Martin demonstrates his Gibson harp guitar and other instruments the band used.. He does pluck the bass strings in that one. It is not on YouTube yet.

The Smashing Pumpkins
Tonight
A great song and video but no real bass string bonanza. It was perhaps the first time I ever saw a Gibson harp guitar on British TV way back in the 90s.


I'm sure Gregg will sigh because of the lack of harp guitar bass movement in these songs, but they have brought the harp guitar to a wider audience.

Thanks Stephen - these are all great additions (heavy sigh).  But as you say, anything to raise the awareness of our instrument (sorry, but they do go in a separate section...).

Thanks Stephen.  It's always a tough call, but as I've stated many times, Harpguitars.net strives to be all-inclusive, and anything that raises awareness of the instrument is a good thing!  As you say; "they have brought the harp guitar to a wider audience."  That being said, I (and many of us, I think) am also dedicated to elevating the status and art of the instrument - and by that I mean legitimate application and use of the harp strings (whatever their form).  For better or worse, you're stuck with me (as HG.net creator and editor) being the arbiter of what constitutes "legitimate."

Frank found a new clip of William Eaton demonstrating that new self-tuning Transperformance system on his new HG.  HGG3 attendees may recall him showing slides of this work-in-progress creation.
Looks like he did it!
Fred, you may want to disassemble the New Dream and start all over!
On the new Video page.

Gregg,

I already did (disassemble the New Dream), filled it full of servo-motors and computer chips and so on. But I liked it better without, so I disassembled it again, removed all that stuff, and put it all back together so no one will ever know (but those who read this, and they wisely won't believe me!

Fred

Should this cool Chitarrone video be included in the video section?  Probably not since it's not considered a "guitar"

Brad Hoyt found another new video, which I added to the Players Video page.
It's a short clip of Paolo Giordano playing a new electric Davide Castellaro harp guitar. I've been in touch with Paolo (who requently tours with Michael Manring) for awhile now - waiting for him to start gigging or recording with his harp guitar (he owns this Castellaro acoustic). Looks like he's about ready!

I also added links to the two clips on the new Guitar Player TV site - of Muriel and Stephen.

I knew Jimmy Page had a Gibson harp guitar. Plus the Transperformance is in there too. I love how the Gibson turns into a woman.

Hello
Here is a link to Paul Oorts and Karen Ashbrook playing a gig that was webcasted. It is the one on the 28th of October. Worth watching I might add...

http://www.kennedy-center.org/programs/millennium/archive.html#

Hey Gregg what does it take for Paul to be added to the players section?

Andy still had hair at Winfield, which was the week before HGGIV! I'm thinking he got too close to a ceiling fan or something.....

Steve - Frank and I have Paul on our "to do" list.  Waiting for a recording - or something like this video evidence.  Too bad a bit more use of the sub-basses couldn't have been seen for such a high-profile concert.  It's all good PR though!
