I know this. I am familiar with the methods used to play the guitar. I`m not used to see a man with a hand like that. lol

I think I like this version better than the one that is incessantly played on the radio.

Its because he doesn`t use a pick to strum. He has the long nails so he pretty much has 5 picks he can use at once, thats why he can do this.

I never commented on skill per se, just the choice of song.

YAY! I-A-B pillow fight! well done tedgp for witnessing more ``technical skill``. you win. I wish I could witness more technical skill. Do you even play a guitar? probably a few david gray tracks to impress the ladies late at night.

@Tedgp: You`re absolutely right. There is no "skill" demonstrated in this video. Your sole contribution to IAB, of someone playing a banana piano, is much more impressive.

Ive seen much MUCH better "technical skill". Hell, 2 guys i regularly work with get contracted by record studios to help clean up some stuff every few weeks.


Oh and calling people "saddo`s" simply because they disagree with your OPINION isn`t the best way to put your thoughts down.

HAHAHAHAHA! pathetic remarks from I-A-B saddo`s once more. you might`nt like the song but surely you can appreciate skill when you see it. (or maybe not)

Why is it some big thing for everyone and their dog to do this song on one guitar?
