    It sounded good, though, Farview.
    I've seen a violinist making chords. It was a Vivaldi concerto and a lot of those rapid notes are basically arpeggios. The soloist clearly had it Sussed. I was surprised at how little her left hand was doing so I watched carefully and I noticed she would make a chord shape for a couple of bars than switch to another and those rapid notes came primarily from her bowing. Superb.

    Ah.. the guitarrón. This one has 6 multi-colored strings. Check out the action..! A bit awkward, IMO.
