Check out a new video of classical guitarist Thomas Valeur performing Sarasate's Zigeunerweisen Op. 20 with a female seven-string guitarist called "The Commander-In-Chief."

The performance is interesting right off the bat because this piece is normally played on violin.

If you want some background info before diving into the video (which features shots of a nice Laney amp at various points), here's the info that is included with the video on YouTube:

"The two guitarists met when they performed at the Bergen International Festival in June 2013. They agreed to cooperate and soon started to work on this piece of music. It took five months to prepare, and the recording took place in November 2013 at Modern World Studios in Cotswolds, England."
