As a pianist I can safely say I can play this, as a guitarist I can safely say I cant :P

Notice how he has a cloth to dampen open strings on both necks, and notice how this guitar is specifically made for 2 handed tapping. Also note that this technique becomes even more difficult if not impossible when distorted.

[Edit] He also plays Bachs BWV 847 on one single neck guitar!

I was expecting this to be 200mph shred clip but was very pleasently surprised that is wasn't. I'm not saying I could do that but it's not impossible. Michael Angelo could probably do that with ease and with his eyes closed! That guy looks like a good player but also looks as if he's constantly been poked up the ass with a steel rod when he's playing...hence , looking as if he's about to have an orgasm., :?

Quite an interesting technique though.

Guys his work is not an accomplisment for speed playing and I doubt anyone can shine as speed player anymore.

What is amazing about this work is that its polyphonic and sounds beautiful. As a classicist I can safely say I would love to hear that take on Bach as an alternative to the piano.

Adam Fulara looks like Geddy Lee. He makes crazy faces! I like his arrangement of "Just The Two Of Us". I would like to hear him to some Stanley Jordan.

What's interesting to me is, that Marshall guy, yeah, he's a good, fast and technical player...but I can honestly say, he has no feeling whatsoever in his playing...he doesn't and those faces doesn't exude feeling either... Mind you, yeah, he's got skills, chops, technique and can play fast, but when I start hearing that 11,000 notes "look how fast I can play, etc.." turns me off completely...I'm not into that shred stuff...to me that went out in '88..LOL

The piano, is awesome, great. But for me, "feeling", ala Lynch, Clapton, Beck, BB King, Gilbert, etc... where you can do more with one note and sustain, and bends, etc...makes all the difference in the world... then hearing all these scales, sweeps, etc... thanks for the links.


The key? "Less is More" :D

What you're not seeing in the video is that the guy is being electrically shocked in his anus by a cattle prod behind the camera's view. This is why he's making the faces. Every time you see his face get worse, his parents are turning up the juice.

Without the shock treatment, he refuses to play in front of the camera. :lol: :lol: :lol:

ROFL! That's hilarious...

He starts out with a normal straight face. Then right when the song begins he puts on his best "OoooOOh i PooPed my PanTS!" face!

Pretty cool, though!
