Notes & Reviews:

"Mr. Galbraith does not play the traditional guitar. His instrument has two extra strings, one high and one low. He adds a cell-like end pin that connects to a resonating box on the floor, and he holds the instrument between his legs like a cell. Theses changes enable him to expand traditional pieces and to explore new repertory that could not be played on the standard instrument... the performances are magical. The Debussy is simply astonishing... This is remarkable music-making, essential to anyone who loves the guitar and cares about its future." -American Record Guide
