Guitarrers?
 
If guitarists keep playing like this, drummers are going to be short on gigs:

Raul Midon-

I found Andy McKee myself a few days ago; but to REALLY find the root of his style check out Michael Hedges; he was something else. Just another level altogether.

Raul Midon - got his first album, really dig his mouth trumpet! Incredible guitarist - trainned in flamenco and apparently he's menna be blind. Looks like we've found the Stevie Wonder/Ray Charles of guitar..

I saw raul midon on the tonight show with jay leno, and he just blew me away. Amazing how he can keep a beat on a guitar while he's playing notes, all the while singing too! And he does that trumpet thing...

Yeah those guys are great, but how about Antoine Dufour? He is also fantastic. I have only taken time to learn the first 1 min up until that slide on the fret board. Its really fun to play once you get it down. Its all muscle memory really.

I really can't feel this song. Doesn't flow for me, I can honestly say I don't like it. Those are some serious neck bends though, I get told off all the time for doing those, harmonics with a neck bend are one of the things I like to do.

I'm making it my life's work to learn to play this.

Yeah those neck bends are terrible for the guitar. Supposedly countless guitarists have snapped their necks while doing it. Luckily i have a schecter C-1 Classic and it is "neck through" which means its all one peice, they did not attach the neck to the body of the guitar. Doesnt mean it still ok to do em.

What you can do though, is push down on the strings on the head stock (the part of the strings to the left of the 1st fret if you are a righty guitarist).

Great thread, stumbled across Andy McKee a little while ago and was blown away, now i've got this Michael Hedges fellow to enjoy, thanks MFB

Michael Hedges was a great listen, MFB..

Yeah, it's all the more tragic because he died in a car crash in 1997. Check out the videos of him playing his harp guitar, those are something special.

I don't like doing that, I prefer neck bends. I don't do it on other peoples' guitars though under any circumstances. I might have a chance to borrow a twelve string Rickenbacker at some point so if I do, I'll get pictures of that one. I have two glue-in necked guitars and my bass is a bolt-on; I'm using a Line 6 Variax as well which is a glue-in and I nearly got a through-necked bass a little while back. Played like a beauty.

Both of those guys remind me of Tim Reynolds. Excellent videos Aydee!

A guitar player friend sent me Andy Mckee a while back and I was very impressed. I think he stands out because he is doing a very good job of conveying emotion and making other people feel emotion with his playing. It doesn't feel the same to listen to his music but when you watch him play he seems to be so sincerely into it.

Love the second video in the first post. Certainly kept me entertained.

I definitely feel that lack of flow, but I think the song has more potential. Maybe it just needs to be performed by more than one person to give it some room to breathe. On the other hand, maybe those fills are really just too unsympathetic.
