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

    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)

    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.

    @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.

    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.

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

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

    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
