If only I could play the guitar..
I don`t get why people say it`s a repost; I`ve never seen this particular video before. And if it`s forbidden to post something that looks or sound like something that was posted before, then I`m surprised this website is still running.
Muirghiel, he does have a CD, and it is possible to get the mp3s on his website at www.erikmongrain.com.
Quien ese tocador, y tiene CD?
(( That guy was great!))
Even if it is a repost (though I haven`t seen it, even in the last 50 pages of the site), it is really awesome, and even IF it is simple or whatever you all claim it to be, it sounds beautiful. Isn`t that what music is supposed to be about?
I don`t give a fudging rat`s ass if the technique is simplistic, if it sounds brilliantly beautiful, that`s all that matters.
Do what your_majesty said. If you know it`s a repost, don`t friggin watch it! There is an abundance of people who have never even seen this kind of thing and will appreciate it. The rest of you mindless zombie hounds are all repeating each other with your spamful "REPOST!".
I can do a simpler version of that.
But seriously, why is a repost such a problem? Just don`t watch it.
F*ck off and die.
I like him better.
As far as I could hear, that was music.
So he`s using the guitar to fit the purpose.
And I agree with all that say he`s very talented, don`t get me wrong. But once you see about 3 or 4 videos of this style, one realises how limiting it is to the music. It all sounds very similar.So i`m not knocking him, great musician, brilliant talent and a firm hold on the technique. But it`s more the context of how much slap-tapping is around these days, and from a personal point of view, I find it`s all getting a bit too crowded to stand out.
but mainly i agree with DBtG :)
I usually like to criticize the hell out of guitar players, but this guy was awesome.
IAB is slipping down a slippery slope, nothing good will come of these reposts...
I thought this dude rocked. I`d get one of his albums for sure.
Why do IAB members always recoil with such bile whenever they see a video of a talented musician.
Be it a 5 year old piano genius or an awesome guitarist...it seems that nothing else (except emo posts) inspires more ire than a 2 min video clip of an exceptional musician.
...and "slap-tapping" is no more "worn out" than playing the "traditional way." The guitar is a thing that makes music. There`s no right or wrong way.
This guy makes interesting music from an acoustic guitar, and he`s obviously well practiced.
4 out of 4
Erik probably has the best grasp of this technique from all the slap-tappers that i`ve seen.
It`s getting a bit old now. though.
Here`s an actual good song using this style.
Airtap: Eric Mongraine"
I believe I`ve already covered this. :) Post from the Justin King video.
Just because you dont have the ability to come up with an original work of art that impresses people dosent mean you get to just flip the instrument around and start smackin on it like a retard.
Another noob, another repost
