Its hardly rock and roll, but went to see Leonard Cohen at the Bournemouth Internations Centre last night.  Cracking gig for a 78 years old.  Not far off 3 hours.  Anyway  this chap,  Javier Mas, played a wide selection of stringed instruments.  Best clip I can find is this into for a gog last year.  I have no idea what hes playing and you only need the first couple of minutes to get a feel for it, but he was on fire all night.

    Is that a 12 string nylon strung guitar? :(|)
    The singer in my ska band was a big Cohen fan. There are rehearsal rooms in Birmingham that still now echo to failed attempts at skanking up Suzanne.
    Inhale away Jackson Jeffrey Jackson.

    He played several odd looking stringed instruments.  I think this is a 12-string bandurria, but there was also a Laud, a couple of standard classical and (i think) a balalaika, or bouzouki.

    I think some of those are Greek aubergine dishes.
