    Cool stuff Johan. The guy has his tapping chops down. I especially liked the semi-clean classical-like bit in the middle. Where did you find this guy?

              He plays the most run of the mill runs and boring notes. I don't like his hair and he bends out of tune! The WORST!

                Why doesn't he play piano instead? I mean seriously cause he's not getting the real guitar tone this way. We're not hearing the string attack. By the end of the day it is just a cirkus trick.

                Would I do this trick if I knew how to? Of course!

                    I can't DL here at work. However, from some of the criticism I'm reading I think I'm familar with the guys playing from the Guitarwars DLs. Two hands on the fretboard but *NOT* Stanley Jordan. Sounds kinda 'one dimensional'. Almost like the way Satch does his two handed stuff, right?

                    If it's the same guy, I'm able to appreciate the deviation from the 'norm'. But it leaves me limp. Know what I mean? It's cool for a few minutes, but after that narcolepsy sets in. That being said... Sure wish I could play like that. LOL

                      Please disregard my last post!!!

                      I think this is COOL!! This Chinese (I assume he's Chinese since his name is Xia) kid is kick ass! LOL I like all of the noodling he does FAR better than his chosen forte for music. Although what he plays in the video is acrobatic and full of 'technique', it's far more melodic and pleasing to listen to than the 'difficult' metal-ish rythm he was playing.

                      My $0.02

                      In short... If you know the guy... Tell him to keep it up. He brought a smile to my face.

                        I have to be honest. I am not at all impressed. I was in Amsterdam over the summer, and I saw a street musician who blew my mind. This guys name is Carlos Vamos. He had a couple of cd's that I bought direct from him on the street. He does the tapping thing too, but he does it a thousand times better than the guy in the vid. Instead of a bunch of standard crap, Carlos used the technique of tapping to make something that is actually good. You guys should have seen the crowd this guy had. They watched him like a god. The guy in the vid is never gonna get out of the bedroom with that crap. It may be neat to show your friends when they come over, but it is only a novelty in the hands of an amateur.

                          Sounds like a bunch of noise to me. I wonder how impressive he would be if you took away his insane amount of gain, chorus and delay?

                            BB King can say more with one note than this guy........

                            I can do that with one hand tied behind my back.

                            Guys like this always amaze me, the physical ability is amazing, but the musical applications are almost 0. Can you imaging jamming with him?

                              Bob, I don't know about BB King....last I heard him play, he couldn't bend a note in tune to save his life. Great singer IMHO but nothing special in terms of guitar playing. In fact I thought he was awful. He is at the very least an overrated guitarist. Even SRV and the other cheeseballs hold up better than BB.
