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.
