While cruising around YouTube looking for something else entirely, I stumbled across this video from Dominic Frasca, a guitarist from New York. I almost hesitate to call him a “guitarist,” for while the term is certainly accurate, it doesn’t seem to convey the skill on display here. Frasca apparently plays a custom 10-string guitar which also features extra tools allowing him to play a variety of percussive bits, too — his playing makes him sound like a multi-instrumentalist, but with only one instrument.
I’m now on the waiting list for his newest CD at CDBaby. Impressive stuff — I can’t wait to hear the whole album.
