That’s Edgar Cruz (photo from his Facebook page). Edgar is a prolific pop/classical/flamenco nylon-string fingerstyle player based in Oklahoma. Ben spotted this new video of a recent performance: Edgar plays an Eagles tune, a short classical medley and Ghost Riders in the Sky (a tune I happen to love).
I don’t recognize the builder, nor does Edgar talk about the instrument, so we’ll have to get him and/or the luthier to chime in on that.
So, you see? I can’t keep up with it! If anyone’s plugged into this world, it’s I – yet here is still another player (who cites some harp guitarists among his influences) who I had no idea was working toward this; and an unknown guitarmaker quietly working away on yet another new design.
Welcome to our world, Edgar! (even if I’m the last to know!)
