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

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

    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

    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

    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.

    @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?

    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 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.

    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
