I knew this would happen.
After listening to Pat Metheny the other day Robin just couldn't resist getting out his electric sitar.
He plays a Jerry Jones Electric Sitar and as you can see, there are the conventional strings as you find on an ordinary electric guitar, but also there are 13 sympathetic strings.
These are designed to resonate as you play which, along with the special bridge, gives the 'sitar' sound.
I do have some recordings of Robin playing this but at the moment we are compiling a CD worth of music to release at a later date....
So watch this space for more information.
'As always, it was sheer pleasure to observe Robin Hill's remarkable fluent technique: everything looks easy when he plays it.' Colin Cooper- Classical Guitar Magazine ----- 'Wonderful for their (Hill & Wiltschinsky) precision, touch and clarity of sound... refined virtuosity, the achievement of a long interpretive process.' Il Giornale D'Italia (Rome) ----- 'I loved your CD and thought your technique and performance were fabulous...' Rick Wakeman
