ANIMAL AS LEADERS’ Javier Reyes Soothes The Soul With Classical 8 String

Classical guitar?  8 string classical guitar??  Javier Reyes of Animals as Leaders takes on the song “Suspiro” on his Ortega 8 string guitar.  I played classical guitar in college and I can tell you – it isn’t easy.  You have to grow out your fingernails and make sure that they are filed a certain way so that you get good tone.  You also have to work on your “p i m a” finger technique.  All this aside, Javy does a great job on this song.
