Using a traditional violin and a modern electric violin with digital studio effects, Aaron makes the connections and differences between classical music and his own original, modern music, which combines world, rock, and classical styles. Rock guitarist and producer Tim Ellis then demonstrates how this works with a range of acoustic and electric guitars using the sophisticated, computer-controlled studio equipment he brings with him.
