    Awesome collection of Holdsworth-related stuff.

    Oneiric Moor 2007 :: Allan Holdsworth Fans Community Resources

    The older interviews on the site clarified quite a few things..

    That doubleneck he had, which we were speculating about on a while back, is in fact tuned with one neck in standard and the other in fifths. Apparently he'd had it built to practice at home when he started tuning the Synthaxe FCGDAE after experimenting on a CGDAE-tuned five-string acoustic. On top of that, there're apparently a couple of tunes where he used the Synthaxe's electronic tuning system to switch between standard and fifths in the same song!

    On top of that, there's lots of info about his gear over the years, particularly his three wierdo baritone guitars, so this site's a real goldmine of info for ERG fans.
    "The greatest power one may possess -- in any situation -- is simply not to care what happens.

    "In fact, it's the only power, all others being a semblance and mockery of it. But you must also not care about possessing the power itself. So fuck it."
