    Justin King you mean? He`s really good in that style... but I`m so tired of it `cause it`s so repetative.

    Nice style, he was probably one of the first to do such a thing.

    But there`s so many slap-tappers around these days (Erik Mongrain is a good example) that it`s already becoming monotonous.

    I mean, when one person does it, brilliant. Original. Fresh.
    But it`s such a limited technique (slap body for rhythm, general twiddle lower on the neck and tapping higher up for melody and harmonics) that once a few more people do it, you realise how samey it sounds...

    justin king is awesome stop the hatin folks he rocks! listen to some of his recordings before you judge him. that was just a random version of "knock on wood" good song but by far not his best.

    i`m more into the likes of rusty, yngwie, or even vai. but i like what justin does.

    not as good as me though =)

    he really is gifted no doubt. yeah ak-047 there was a video similar but he had these things on the neck kinda cappoing strings playing a ten string (i think) but jk is better. jawa weed : justin king does play alot of double neck stuff. like i said check him out proper man i bet you will like some of his stuff. as far as "sloppy" sparxcore : show me a video of you doing any better and then you will have the right to post a comment like that. credit where credit is due eh??

    His name is Justin King, and the song is called knock on wood. He`s sloppy in this video but that`s probably because he`s in a guitar shop. He plays it on a double neck guitar too

    He`s a good player, but the whole "tap`n`slap" deal is really just a parlor trick. It`s really not that difficult to do. I`m not saying he sucks, or the the song is bad because of the tap`n`slap style. But people see it and say "wow he`s the most original and technical player I`ve ever seen" when in reality this has been done for 100+ years, but until the youtube came out, nobody had really heard it. Because it`s a blues/classical/folk style, and MTV would rather go bankrupt then play any of those listed.
    *Again not bashing, just putting the facts out there*

    Map750: Hey man don`t let that get you down. I can`t do sweeps and I`ve been playing for 16 years. It doesn`t mean I suck, or you suck, it just means you`ve got a goal to work towards. If you want to play like that, then start easy. A great song to began learning this style of guitar is the Peanuts theme song.
    I don`t have a guitar in front of me but if you want some tips just ask.

    The song was stupid sounding, but I`ve heard this style before, and I`m impressed that he can do it.

    Here`s an actual good song using this style.

    If there wasn`t 100s of videos of this slap and tap crap already, this video would actually be original. However it isn`t. It`s not that I don`t think this person is talented, it`s I think this person should try doing something original.

    Blah blah blah. So pretentious you people are. "So many slap-tappers....it`s monotonous." I bet you`d say the same thing about the next popstar to hit #1 on the charts. You still fall for it, and you still know all the words to those radio singles. Even though they`re all the same. Hypocrites.
    And why the hell can`t you just respect a musician for his dedication, passion, and OBVIOUS talent?

    I know he has talent, diemorondie. I didn`t disrespect his skill in any way whatsoever. I just haven`t praised his talents because i`ve seen so much like it before.

    I`m just stating from a personal viewpoint that, in the scope of how many people play this style now, it`s all getting too samey.
    Largely because there`s only so much you can DO with the technique, and it`s more of a party trick than an actual style to use consistently.

    And to bring up the point of radio singles etc. I can`t stand any of them, because these days it`s all indie bands prancing around in brown suits and plastering "The " as a band name.
    All mainstream sounds either the same, or utterly boring (like RnB for example).

    And now i`m bored of typing a pointless rant...

    if any one of you idiots insulting this guy have even a fraction of the talent he has please be my guest and post a link to one of your masterpiece videos i`d love to see it!

    as a HUGE fan of both justin and BLS (or more particulary zakk wylde early solo stuff) i must say drummerboy zakk aint poo compared to justin. i mean zakk rocks but he`s not even in the same league dude. totally different and not fair to compare them. rusty cooley is better than both them though so eat it bitch!!

    what the hell does a drating teenage drummer know about music???
