    Good fretwork and finger picking. Nice tones too.

    You see these guys out there. I'd ask what the operative term is, talented, or practiced. A lot of people, especially when they're young, have time to practice all day every day all day every day. Wish I had that kinda time anymore. Not to take anything away from this guy, but there's a ton of guys on this forum who are excellent players, we just don't have that kind of time to devote.

    Yes, there are a LOT of players out there. Guitarists are everywhere. I have a saying:

    Throw a rock out your window, and you'll hit a guitarst.

    You're right. When I was in my formative guitar learning years (1966--1968) it was play the vinyl riff over and over until you could play it on guitar. I didn't have more than 1 hr a day to devote to it. Some players today have much more time to practice.
    .
    I read a story a while back by Doug Rappaport where he says prominent players today were set in their ways after about 3 years. In other words, they were at maybe 85% of their peak within the first 3 years.




    Now, there is an incredible amount of information to educate an up and comming phenom guitarist.



    I'd have to say talented, first, then practiced. I've seen hundreds of mediocre guitarists (myself included) but I recognise virtuosity when I see it.

    Talented, obviously, and has some good tones going on. Not terribly moving.

    I think he's very talented. Most players could practice 24/7 and never develop this guy's touch. Really, really nice.
    I just watched several of his vids. Amazing player. Thanks for sharing. I like this one too:


    and this one:


    I've just realized I'm a complete hack.

    Bad day at the office Thump?
    I've definitely seen what you say in some techno whizzes. I don't think he belongs there. Very nice!

    Very skilled player, nice tone.

    Lots of awesome players on YouTube. I've been watching alot of Greg Koch lately, never heard of him till about 6 months ago.

    Thanks for sharing.

    The slap technique around 2:50 is pretty cool.

    Guys like this make me wonder if I should try to go pickless.

    Thanks for sharing.
