    damn....thats good. but the thing is he might have a major in guitar...there r colleges for guitar. but u must learn classical peices and arpeggios. i play guitar myself but only a lil over a yr. i got a small band n stuff n i wanna go to college to get a mojor for guitar. but its one thing to kno how to play sumthing like that...but its a WAY different thing to play it and put emotion into it...i mean the moving around n stuff...i play metal (slipknot style mostly) and headbanging and playing guitar is harder than it looks sumtimes....ok im gonna shut up now... :-|

    I distinctly heard a muffed note at 1:04 on his left hand, and he clearly missed a note at the end when he was playing that descending bass run with his face.

    You guys are right. He sucks!

    good but definately not a master, he fumbels notes all the way through and from what i can see it dosent look like the majority of the peice is that hard to play. he is very experienced in tapping and has done a great job of covering the song. on his web site it claims he developed the "touch technique" which is basically a lie, its something most ppl realise as soon as they start playing guitar and is used extensively in music.

    I somehow knew as soon as I finished watching this video that I`d come onto this message board and find people slating him. He`s fantastic and yeh maybe Vai and petrucci etc are better, but don`t take anything away from this guy. I`ve been playing 10 years almost, and I`m not even fractionally as good

    1) manorrd, you crack me up. Sadly, not many people are savvy to sarcasm.
    2) malmsteen is a guitar master...bator.

    I personally (this is personal taste, mind you) don`t care for technical prowess. I`d much rather hear someone like B.B. King play one note with soul than hear a hundred notes with technical precision. I might as well listen to someone clacking away at a typewriter.

    That being said - yeah, this guy is skilled, but it just didn`t move me. Know what I mean?

    Only an idiot, a stupid, knuckle-dragging, subhuman, cromagnon, sister-raping, acne-scarred, man-juice-injected MORON would say that this guy ISN`T awesome.

    Completely amazing--completely.

    Who was the fool who posted that he "fluffed" a note?

    Ignoramus. Go buy a Kenny Wayne Shepherd album.

    (BTW: SRV was good, but this guy plays circles around him.)

    Stanley Jordan is a well known jazz guitarist. Ask Petrucci, Vai, and any of the others and they will tell you he is indeed a master.
    He has been doing CD`s for years, check for some Mp3s.
    His performace of Stairway to Heaven on Carson (Yes Carson) is remarkable. The man plays two guitars at once. (One is mounted on a stand)
    His fingers must be like tiny hammers.

    Still - I`d rather be the guys that wrote Eleanor Rigby and Stairway to Heaven than the guy who can play a jazzed-up version of them with both hands.
    And for the record - I`ve been playing guitar for 30 years, and I`m no slouch.

    Stanley Jordan it isn`t, he`s still stumbling on his notes and although very nice for the sake of liveness, he totally loses it when going into more complex parts of his rendition. That said, he`s still very good and to be able to play like that, you need years of practice. Kudos!

    It`s very good. Pretty clean. I prefer two-handed tapping on bass, but this was good.
    It is always so nice to find a guitarist that plays really musical stuff like this as opposed to just shredding.

    There`s no doubt about it, Stanley Jordan is a master guitar player and a genius. This was probably filmed when he was a guitar student.

    NO ONE POSTING ON THIS BOARD COULD PLAY BETTER. PERIOD. DEAL WITH IT.

    If you could, you would. What a frigging MORON: "I could do better." God, the world is full of idiots.

    An Malmsteen? Better than Stanley Jordan?? Hah! Hahahhahahahahahahha!!! Ahahahahahhaha!!!

    Malmsteen is a musical mastrubator, the worst of his kind, a testoserone junkie.

    Jordan is an artist.

    first of all, that`s not stanley jordan, second of all that`s not jazz it`s the beatles, thirdly SRV COULD play circles around this guy because how much do you think this guy actually knows? I`m self taught and I can play like him, it`s not hard, like playing piano. Try listening to Carlos Vamos, the man is a gifted player, and he even took lessons from Stanley Jordan, Carlos busks across Europe, try playing to that crowd and not crying yourself to sleep everynight!

    Malevolent00 (learn to capitalize) and MagnussHolar (what a stupid name):

    Your opinions are wrong. Period. Deal with it. Nothing will change the fact that you are wrong. Get it, yet? Wrong. W.R.O.N.G. As in--not right. As in--you are WRONG.

    SRV was a wonderfully gifted player, a man who really explored the sonic capabilities of his instrument. His covers of Hendrix, T-Bone Walker, Albert King, and other artists were amazing. But, despite your worship, he was a limited player.

    That was, my son, Stanley Jordan. He is an amazing jazz player.

    If you are self-taught, then it`s clear that you don`t even have the knowledge to make the kinds of claims that you`re making. Do a little reading on music history before you come to class, kid. You might learn something.

    Once again, Mr. Genius prove himself to be a twat.

    I totally agree with Enohead. Generally, this type of music don`t appeal to me. A good guitarist ain`t someone who can play 15000 notes a second, its someone who plays memorable tunes. See: John frusciante, James Dean Bradfield, John Squire, even Noel Gallagher. Not technically fantastic guitarists, but very entertaining.

    What kind of a stupid thing is that to say?

    Of course opinions can be wrong:

    "I think the sky is green."
    "It`s not green. It`s blue."
    "So? It`s green. That`s just my opinion!"

    Ok, so bigoldjeffry has a way of stating things that perhaps isn`t the most tactful in the world - but he`s right in saying:
    "No you couldn`t. You couldn`t do better.
    I don`t give a rat`s filthy a*ss how long you`ve been playing." Yep. So clearly he finds teenagers (shout-out to zoinks here) saying "I could do dat!" as annoying as I do, and chops to him for cutting them off at the knees!

    he`s got skillz. It`s a nice rendition of the song. Although it was less only really recognizable in a few parts.

    My lord you people are sad.
    Actually arguing that it ISNT Stanley Jordan shows how uneducated you really are.
    He does appear to be very young in this clip. And I`ve been listening to him since the mid 80s.
    If his style isn`t your cup of tea, so be it. But you can hardly say he isn`t talented.
    Kudos to those of you who had heard of him before this thread.

    I`ve seen Jordan live several times, and he is incredible (along with most every player mentioned as "genious" on this comment string). If this video is of Jordan (and it certainly appears to be), then I would geuss it`s a bit older due to the skill exhibted in the video versus Jordan`s current skill and demeanor (but that`s just a guess). Regardless, whoever this guy is, whenever it was filmed, it was a painfully skilled performance compared to what most mortals can do. And what`s the point of comparing SRV or EVH or Vai to this video? There`s no useful comparison whatsoever other than that they all play(ed) strats. The style, technique and execution are so completely different the discussusion is pointless. Can`t they all be super-human good and leave it at that?

    Excuse me while I go woodshed for another 10 years to hope to even breath the same air as that guy... |-(

    Fu*k off any one who says hes sucks just cos he misses a note, hes not even concentrating cos he plays jazz and doesnt belive that being note perfect is as important as the expression of the music, your just saying that because your scared to admit that there are people that good ,AND TO ADMIT THAT YOURE NOT THE GREATEST GUITARIST EVER.

    Man... Dude`s brilliant.

    I`m sick of all you people saying he sucks. I know why you are. You`re jealous. When I was first teaching myself guitar, I was jealous of those better than me. As I`ve gotten better, I realized that you shouldn`t be jealous, but embrace and try to learn from it.

    This dude was awesome. I really liked when he actually played that song. John Lennon would be proud.

    Buckethead? Are you serious?

    Buckethead?

    How stupid do you think we are?

    Stanley Jordan vs. Buckethead? Isn`t that rather like your intellect and mine clashing? In that you would lose so badly that there is no need for a competition.

    Oh my God. I`ve got to call all of my friends. This dude actually believes "Buckethead" plays better than Stanley Jordan.

    I suppose you think that "Buckethead" could play circles around Django Rheinhardt, too? And I`m assuming that you`d put that Wes Borland could just make Big Bill Broozny look stupid?

    I`ve never seen such depth of stupidity.

    the could be video of some guy with 10 fingers on each hand plaing 20 note chords on a 24 string guitar, and useing his toes to strum, and there would still be people on this site saying "well he`s not that great" and of course they would be the people who have neverlearned more than a G-chord on a base guitar.

    I think we should bring our attention to a serious problem: people that didn`t see the sarcasm in manorrd`s post on the first page. You people are a terrible thing, reminds me of the gullible little 10 year olds in camp. Fluffed notes? what the heck are you TALKING about? Can`t you read? On top of the illiteracy here, people don`t get jazz. It`s not called jazz when you "miss a note." "hes not even concentrating cos he plays jazz" listen man, jazz is ALL concentration. In a trio, its all about the inter-connection between the players and their instruments. In a guy going solo like this, although there is a sense of who-cares attitude, it doesn`t stop musicians from making the right note. Its how they pull the note off, which in this case, very well, that makes the song. It`s all about the "Interplay" (Great jazz song btw) between every aspect of the music. There`s a lot of crap being said, and I think before you start talking it, you should be making sure

    I`m sure he could teach Steve Vai a few of his tricks. I`ve never seen a guitar played in that way before and out of all Vai`s tracks i`ve never heard something as awesome as that.

    I`d say this guy knows is stuff, and he has a bloody nice guitar aswell.

    Listen, NOTHING is hard in the end, its just the time it takes to master the technique, thats all thats difficult.

    And skill goes with style. If you play metal then your skill develops in fast runs and heavy rhythm picking. If you play jazz you develop your skill in scales, bending notes and such.

    You can`t say that James Hetfield (Metallica) is better than Jimi Hendrix (or vice versa), they have completely different styles of music with different techniques implemented in their music.
    So maybe it`s not hard for you, but the time it would take to master what he does takes commitment and time.

    Only a true "master" of guitar can play all styles imaginable and still have the style and feeling in their music. Guys like John5, Joe Satriani and Paul Gilbert can show you what a multitude of styles really is.
