Finally a chance to use all 97 keys, live , on video :-) In the original score , the decending broken octaves passage ( so-called martellato, around 8:00") i...
Wilson Baxter's insight:
If you watch any of these clips, make it the first ten minutes of this one. In my opinion the piano is the most beautiful instrument in existance and the added keys to this piano allows this piece to achieve such a great effect (8:50) that would not otherwise be acheivable.

The twelve string guitar is an example of an extended range instrument that allows the player to play the onstrument in the exact same manner as the traditional version of the modern guitar. he added strings here are a mixture of doubled strings or octaved strings placed directly next to each other to result in a harp-like sound.
Short vid just messing around for a sound check of this guitar. At time of recording, I have only had it for 2 weeks, getting used to 9 strings very fast, it...
Wilson Baxter's insight:
This is an example of one of the negative sides of the increasing pouplarity of extended range. Some musicians get these instruments before being ready to understand them, and develop bad musical habits as a result.
This song does not include the use o the contrabass clarinet, an incredible example of an extended range instrument, however it does include the more common tenor saxophone, a mid/low-range version of the saxophone. This instrument is has a more mellow sound than the alto or soprano sax because of its lower range and thicker reed.
Extended range instruments, such as 7- and 8-string guitars, are becoming more popular amoung instrumentalists each day. The additional octaves of extended range string instruments in particular, allows for more possibilities and bigger, fuller chords on the instrument. Many new sounds are forming almost solely because of the rising popularity of these instruments.
Pros: The additional possibilities, techniques, and unique sounds of these instruments are resulting in new genres, styles of play, and allowing the player to more easily apply slightly more complex musical ideas to the instrument. With the added strings, the instrument becomes more like a piano than ever before; a visual representation of the musical alphabet.
Cons: With the increasing popularity of these instruments, especially extended range guitars, there are a vast amount of beginner players wanting to imitate the sounds of their favorite artists, who happen to use these instruments. This is not totally a bad thing, as a new musician often learns best by familiarizing themselves with the instrument by learning their favorite songs, however many guitarists are adding more and more strings to their guitars without understading the science and theory behind those extra strings. This results in a repetition and cycle of similar basic ideas that restrain innovation more so than the standard-scaled cousins.
