The only ones I recognized were the ones from songs in Back to the Future...

Of course, I only listen to Baroque music, so this guitar crap is lost on me... But the day they come out with Harpsichord Hero is the day *I* become the newest internet sensation... :P

100 Riffs be damned, they were all just variations on that ONE riff that goes ABCDEFG...

I forgot something...some of those aren`t even the beginning riffs. When he played "More Than a Feeling" by Boston, *ZOMG! HE DID? IT WAS SO FAST I COULDN`T RECOGNISE IT!* he played to chord progression to the chorus, not the intro riff we all know.

First, I`d like to point out, that at the end of the video, he looks at the camera all embarrassed like "What? Go away." Lols. Now, I`d like to complain. I could have been able to recognise more than just 30 of those if he played them all normally. How are you supposed to recognise them when they are being played that fast?

I don`t play guitar (though I have one ) so I certainly can`t say one way or another whether he`s great or not but I do know that I really enjoyed it and I recognized almost all the songs!

@MisuriX

I`m not one for insults, but you said some pretty stupid stuff. He`s just doing a demonstration video, I don`t see why you would critize him for not having ENOUGH bits. Who cares what YOU want? He did 100 in one take, with no scratches, that ain`t too shabby. And finally, he pronounced his name "Cumming," just like it`s spelled. And what is the proper way to play the riffs, then?

He is an ok guitar player. Honestly, nothing special at all. Nice that he is playing these famous riffs, but may I ask what is so special about it?

Some of those shouldn`t even count. I couldn`t tell when Born to Run ended and Oh Pretty Woman began. He`s good but he should`ve given most of the songs more than a second or two.

i reconized quite alot, but i wanted him to play more than 2-3 secs of a riff...its not really a riff, more like a "look at me, look at me, i can play this new fangled mooosick"

he was ok, but it needed to flow...and at least 10 were tv/videogame themes.

and if he`s gonna play the riffs, do it properly mate...and no way his last name is pronounced "cooming", its like the gal off "keeping up appearnces" that calls herslf bouquet, despite the fact its really bucket

Yeah and there were a couple that I recognized that were almost unrecognizable because he sucks. So maybe I missed some.

pretty boring. It`s really not good to learn only riffs rather than actual songs.

about 5 were Van Halen, 2 were from Panama, didn`t pay much attention other than Iron Man, Beat It and Purple Haze, but beat it and purple haze are stupidly similar anyway

And "looks like the guitar isn`t plugged in." Oh, that was definitely him... the fingering matched his lack of rhythm perfectly.

Doesn`t have to be, could be a wireless set up.
