Re: SV: Garbarek album (from 1984)

The funny thing about Holdsworth is that he claims those effects are all
very short delays that are augmented by his playing. He's also got a little
bit of equiptment that he makes himself. The guy always blow my mind. I've
got some video of him playing the Synthaxe, It is nuts. Have you seen his
instructional video. It's scary.

Speaking of Holdsworth: What I love about him is his chordal playing. I saw
him live here
in Oslo a while back and (as usual) he  had a small mountain of gear behind
him. I know the
magic of his playing lies in his hands and mind but I am wondering; Have 
of had any luck
getting that big lushy chordal sound he gets , with a small amount of

I`m talking a sound that is wide and BIG , without beeing  to
"time-travelling" , as in: he plays
a beutiful chord and when he lifts his fingers the sound stops.......not
like a delay that goes on
and on.
