Re: Re: Spin-17

Do you know how I can get ahold of Motoko Shimizu so i can find out more
about this "Bridge Guitar". It sounds interesting. I sure hope that if and
when you tape this concert, that instrument is clearly defined in the sound
field. I've done plenty of prepared guitar stuff and would like to see if 
can help each other brighten our horizons.
