Video - Guitar Genius - 30/03/12 [DAILY DOSE]

FRIDAY 30TH MARCH 2012 - DAILY DOSE


Today's DAILY DOSE is a few videos demonstrating unusual or skilled guitar playing. I have played guitar for the past ten years or so, and have always loved creative or entertaining ways of making sounds with these wonderful instruments.

The video at the top of the page is a guy called Eric Mongrain, who is showing his technique in a song called "AirTap!". He has developed this over many years and he is now one of the premier guitar players who use this technique (sometimes called "Lap Tapping").

Below are a couple of others - the first being "Four Hands Guitar", played by two professional musicians who thought that one guitar each was too extravagant!


And finally there's the infamous scene from Deliverance - the "Duelling Banjos". 
How they are able to pick that tune out - I don't know. 
That's at a skill level waaaaay above my own - but still great to watch!
