He could be working as a teller in a bank or a computer geek who sits behind a screen all day. Playing again, Rognvald

Love him or hate him...he's just noodling around trying to make an honest buck doing something he enjoys. I don't care for it, but I would certainly drop a buck or two...solidarity...we gotta keep people inspired to play.

Is he really awful? Well he's not terrible...and so what if he's just monkeying around, that's the point. He's having fun.

Sure the general public will be dazzled, but if this putz turns on the next generation to nylon/gut guitars...that's a plus.

Sometimes a guitar is just a guitar, or a cigar is just a cigar. We all need to lighten up.

He could be a lot worse.

Hmm, maybe that's not a stick of incense under the strings near the head . . . I don't care for his playing -- seems to be fast w/o much technique to me. And that's another beef I have with posted vids about the best guitarist(s) in the world -- they never seem to include classical guitarists in the selection. :evil:

There's cds and multiple videos of him out there. There is a video of him screwing around on a 10 string guitar in another thread. That one really sucked. But I thought this one was alright. More power to him if he can make a living with his guitar and stomp boxes. I'd rather pass my day playing guitar rather than working a 9 to 5.
