    Ha! Nice find!
  2. Dude needs to find a monster bassist and a drummer that plays synth drums on a modified guitar type synth controller, that's what he needs to do...that would be very unique...er...uh...

    ...oh yeah....been done with the banjo!



    ...dude is a real virtuoso, how far that will get him with his instrument of choice is unknown, but he's obviously exceptionally talented.

  9. Damn, that guy is GOOD!! Give him a classical guitar and I'd be even more impressed.:D

    Rock on
  10. I think it's actually more impressive that he can do that on a uke!

    I agree, I bet its a lot harder on a Uke than it would be a 6-string guitar. And cooler to boot :)

    I've met few guitarists like that here. I really love that quality in a guitarist (or most people). Plus usually they end up to be very very good guitarist. So +1

    That guy is good; if he ever gets a band going I want to be his bassist. :D Seems like a very fun guy to jam with.
