    Inspiring to say the least.

    The thread would get more views if it was titled aptly. I'm no expert, but I believe the term "paraplegic" refers to an affliction of the lower body and he's probably classified differently. If the title read "quadriplegic", everyone would more curious.

    Thanks for posting! Now I'm inspired to practice more and hopefully improve despite my ugliness. :atoz:

    I've seen people with all four limbs and 10 fingers that can't rock it half as good as that guy. Truly heartwarming and inspiring. I'm guessing from his excellent body tone he hasn't always been a quadriplegic, which makes it even more awe inspiring. Most people would just want to die if they were in his place. He's choosen life and living it. Five stars!!!

    Amazing.

    He's not a parapalaegic. He's a quadruple amputee, which makes what he' doing more impressive.

    Smcd is right. He is a quadruple amputee, he's not paralized.

    Love. I played a show with a guitar player that only had one hand (fretting) and taped a pick to the end of the other. I thought that was great, but this is mind blowing.

    Perseverance
