    I could only imagine how difficult that would be... much less singing at the same time... wow. Kinda gives new meaning to the word, "toejam". :bag:
     
  3. i once saw a guitar player play a guitar with only his feet...not to bad!
    i would think its pretty hard to do that!

    now see this guy has some groove. Long notes, cool melodic lines, and he can sing. Beats that guy that plays with one hand anyday in my book. ;)

    Very talented! I do remember seeing a guitarist during the 80's that also played with his feet... I can't remember his name though.

    I can't tell from the small video size.. Does he have no arms or is he holding the chair? (not to sound insensitive or anything, I'm just wondering)
     
  11. Right-click and you can enlarge the video to full-screen.

    Wow, if that video doesn't make you feel bad about whining about your life, I don't know what does. Quite impressive!

    I figured that is who you saw. He is quite an inspiration. It is amazing what the human spirit can overcome, if the individual is determined enough.
     
  16. Very inspirational!

    I did a CD with a guy with handicap that's an insane talent [www.rickrenstrom.com] Yngwie-esque playing, with severe physical limitation. Great songwriter as well.
