Frank Crespo: “A LIGHT AT THE END”

Here’s a video sent in by an excellent guitarist named Frank Crespo, with a song entitled  ”A Light At The End” which is featured on his new CD “A Perfect Circle.”
Frank Crespo uses a lot of chord melodies in this piece along with the new style of guitar tapping which does make for a fuller sound overall.
But what’s interesting here is Frank’s inversion of his left hand, grabbing what looks like a G minor chord from the opposite side of the neck.  I’m not sure what the advantage is, other than being able to barr across with one finger. It certainly looks and sounds impressive.
Here’s a bio that I was able to find on Frank Crespo:

“Soon will the biography of this performer and composer Born in Valencia (Spain).
