Gregory James of Louisville's Annapurna will make you want a guitar for Christmas

Gregory James

Louisville band Annapurna has some seriously talented players and guitarist Gregory James is living proof! He recently recorded a short "Self-Portrait" for Vola Guitars that features his instrumental prowess. From Gregory:

This is the first of the “Self Portrait” series, a collection of shorts meant to highlight personal creative growth. In this particular instance, inspiration struck upon the discovery of a mind-bending effect called “Pitch Delay”. When dialed in correctly, a whirlwind of notes are soon at your disposal. The moment that effect met the Vola, it was nearly impossible to walk away from, and from that burst of inspiration came this brief snapshot of my current state of mind.

Endless thanks to Mike Thompson, Tommy Johns, and Vola Guitars for helping me make this happen.

For all of you guitar geeks, check out the "gear list" below the video. Merry Christmas!
