    He makes his guitar sing ... and cry. That`s worth 100 guitarists who can play ultra-fast runs, and more ultra fast runs.

    Here I am angry because I`m struggling to get a job, and I blame it on the economy, or employers. While this guy has suffered his entire life and is doing what he loves. Sometimes you just have to realize it`s you that is holding yourself back. Do what you love and you`ll never `work` a day in your life.

    Outstanding! Just like Django Reinhart. A skilled player with deformed hands and musical ability. I`d buy the CD.

    DK: "..give him a high five.."

    You are joking right? He`s missing a finger on the left hand and most of his right hand is immobile.

    @mentott510, you called it. This guy is both admirable and impressive, but Django did it first. He had only two functioning fingers on his left hand, yet he was considered to be the father of modern jazz guitar. He was a Gypsy, and he was severely burned when his family`s wagon caught fire. Still he went on to become one of the greatest musicians in modern history.



    If you`ve never heard of him, just search for Django Reinhardt on YouTube and prepared to be blown away.

    Here`s a good place to start.

    @Ollie

    I agree. Django was absolutely one-of-a-kind. What always impressed me was that he was as brilliant a composer as he was a guitarist. My favorite of his compositions is this one ...

    "Rythme Futur"

    It was recorded in 1940. But whenever I hear it, I think of Mahavishnu Orchestra.

    Thanks for the link, Jake. That was awesome. My first thought was Mahavishnu meets the Simpsons. (Danny Elfman is also a genius.)

    Very accomplished, good effort. Bit ironic playing `Beat it` though.
    (Insert bad taste joke about second-hand shop here)
