Still not absolutely sure I fully understand the ways these small differences in fretting allow the player to do different things not possible on a regular guitar. Listening to that piece I didn't say "wow that sounds completely different!"
Similar to piano tuning using temperaments other than equal... Unless there are two instruments to compare with different tunings, most people will say -"that sounds ok". Only when played side by side does the extra purity of usually "busy" intervals become apparent.
Fun stuff, but brings out heated arguments in the tuning community!
I understand (I think) how the different fret spacing for each string imposes a different temperament (if that terminology applies to the guitar). What I can't comprehend is the reason for the closely spaced frets at a few places. They're so close together that I don't see how they can both be used.
If I recall correctly, the tuning of piqué's piano as described in Grand Obsession was one of the issues in trying to resurrect the sound she had initially heard from the instrument after she had it in her home. I'm unsure of exactly what temperament she ultimately preferred.
That’s lovely, but I’m not refined enough to tell the difference. Would it be harder to be precise about where your fingers land on the fretboard since the spacings are a tiny bit different?
And this guitar is played with the right hand fretting (backwards from the usual); I’m guessing just custom for this guitarist? I looked to see if the video was just mirrored, but it’s not; I can read the titles on the bookshelf.
