    This guy doesn't play bass...he fingerpicks an acoustic guitar.

    Check out his "Boogie" video on YouTube.

    Skip the first six minutes, as he talks for awhile before he starts...

    He adds some humor too.....

    An Australian........

    His live shows are amazing. Even though he's off the charts good, he considers himself an entertainer first (at least for his live shows). And you can tell.

    I love his playing. He really angers traditionalists. That makes me like him even more.
