    Ha, I used to do stuff like that (to a much lesser degree, of course) when I was just sitting around with a guitar in my lap... I never thought you could actually PLAY that way.

    "That wasnt tapping! That was some trippy guitaris-ism-ing? though."

    You`re only half right. It`s slap/tap playing.

    That was amazing. Another good slap/tap player to check out is Trace Bundy.

    People who can do extraordinary things are a dime-a-dozen.

    People who can make them meanigful don`t come cheap.

    Check out John Butler Trio`s link. They was MUCH better. Like, lightyears, quantum LEAPS and BOUNDS better.


    Though, they both fall pray to the same flaw. (JBT ALOT less.)

    Their are better songs out there.
    And the overwhelming majority don`t need this craziness, or any other kind to set them apart. Musicianship is more than just a mechanical skill.

    I`d rather listen to Tracy Chapman any day. And she never did anything like that on any of MY cd`s.

    that was done before by stanley jordan, he used the same technique but he played a little different
    there was only a guitar there not a harp, he was tapping high notes and it might of sounded like a harp, i tried it once its pretty hard, put finger tap is easy

    If you like this, I have two words for you: Michael Hedges. He was the absolute king of amazing, wacked-out, fabulous-to-hear acoustic guitar music and used many similar techniques.

    The difference is he had far more tricks up his sleeve than this guy is showing, and didn`t need to put the guitar in his lap to play. In fact, Michael was known to dance around in circles on one foot while doing this stuff.

    Not freaking amazing; I imagine it`s easier to play this way than the "correct" way. Nevertheless, I found it more enjoyable than listening to "correctly" played guitar.

    I sound teched for a guy who played like this once, can`t remember his name but he was better than this guy. He stood up and jigged around while playing, and at one point had a conversation with the cellist whilst still playing with both hands. He also had a bit of velcro stuck on the body of his guitar and he used a loop delay pedal (it was an electo-acoustic guitar) to make a rythm to play to. He was awesome, shame he was up his own arse though.

    There`s a classical station in my area that played an orchestral piece that was played live on a single piano by like, seven people.

    The played on a few of the keys, but had some of the strings raised so that they could use them in different ways. They used various parts of the body for different percussion.

    I was so kool. I didn`t place a single sound in the song as comng from a piano.

    There are a whole bunch or really cool alternative ways to use different intrsuments.

    Bah. Same thing over and over. Like to see him play something else. This style is attributed to Stanley Jordan. I once shot a guitar that looked just like that for "tapping" me on the shoulder after a night of poker and rockgut by the Pecos.
