  • Dominic Frasca; Someone’s Gonna Get Hurt

    Dominic Frasca. Here’s guitar playing that doesn’t sound human. I mean is this for real? Obviously is doing a lot of crazy things like putting pieces of wood on his guitar to using a C clamp as a capo holding  down 2 strings. This is a compilation of a bunch of vids. Truthfully, I had to watch this a few times. What a monster player.  Perhaps one of the most unique styles I’ve ever heard. Dominic currently lives in New York […]

  • Erik Mongrain- Guitar lap tap

    Here’s some pertty awesome guitar tapping by French Canadian guitarist Erik Mongrain. And he’s holding it like it’s a dobro (for those of you that don’t know what a dobro is, look up a Jerry Douglas video). It would seem to me that this is a better way to tap as you have your entire right hand able to move around the neck. The Youtube video says it’s the best ever. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 post your comments…

  • Justin King- Guitar Tapping Taken to Another Level

    Justin King- Guitar Tapping Taken to Another Level

    Guitar Tapping maniac Justin King is not even mentioned in this video. I wonder why. So, I’ll mention him. Justin King, Justin King, Justin King.

Here’s another vid of him tapping on a double neck guitar- filmed a year ago-  May 2012. Song is called “Knock on Wood” You like?  share this with friends..

  • Tommy Emmanuel & Brad Paisley: Cannonball Rag- HOT STUFF

    Here’s guitar extraordinaire Tommy Emmanuel with Country star Brad Paisley performing Merle Travis’s “Cannonball Rag” at the Grand Ole Opry. For those of you that don’t know, this style of guitar fingerpicking is called “The Travis Style,” which is still very popular today. I also bet most people that hear Brad Paisley on top 10 country have no idea what a great guitarist he is (or care.. which is a shame really). Actually, this is the first time I’m hearing […]

  • Solo Guitar by Mike Dawes – Somebody That I Used To Know

    Now here’s a guy that practiced with the click. Mike Dawes – Somebody That I Used To Know (Gotye) is a flawlessly performed piece that is listed in youtube saying “No Overdubs.” Do you  believe that? Do I believe that? Well, you know how youtube videos are, hard sometimes to really tell if what you are watching is indeed the real thing. From what I’m seeing and watching, it looks real, but what a great recording… hum…. The camera work and […]

  • Owen van-Larkins: Sweet As Honey

    Here’s a semi  solo performance by Owen van-Larkins with a song entitled “Honey.” I say semi solo because there’s some other stuff added along with the guitar. But who cares! This  is just about as beautiful of a guitar composition that you will ever hear. Obviously when the keys starts to double the guitar, and then the cymbal swells before the bridge… well-  you know it’s a production and not the live playing. Some of you might cringe but people […]

  • Solo Guitar by Andy McKee: Drifting

    Solo Guitar by Andy McKee: Drifting

    “Drifting” by Solo Acoustic Guitarist Andy McKee: There’s a lot of guys doing taping but I haven’t heard it performed much better than Andy McKee. Aparanlty the public thinks he’s the sheeet too- this vid has 44,291,000 plays! (WUWT?)  He’s the #1 listened to guitarist on the internet (hope you are cashing in on that Andy). Andy’s like a one man band, drums, guitar bass and all. What do you think of his playing?     Check this quote out […]

  • Solo Acoustic Guitar with Stefano Barone – Altalenanze

    Hey! Check out this amazing sounding recording by Italian guitarist Stefano Barone, performing a piece entitled Altalenanze. It’s difficult to tell if the video and audio was shot at the same time since it sounds to me like there’s microphones involved in the recording. And unless it was shot with one camera (a two camera shoot), that would definitely mean that it was played along to. But either way, this  is a superb performance. Now to my ears, it sounds like a […]
