    for the cookie,
    who did Chet Atkins name as the "greatest guitar player" ?

    (keep in mind how long ago this was, too ...)

    I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
    how to fully interact with people.

    You are of course correct if by field you mean genre however if you mean brilliance then you are musically myopic. Try to see things in their own context.

    So that's where it ended up! (I meant that post for another thread, and as I was browsing that thread I found it wasn't there... Had no idea where it'd gone off to :lol:)

    That's insane fast, but they should have shown what his left hand was doing up close, and then in slow motion. If he wasn't changing notes for every single pluck then I'm not impressed. Lots of people could just play a left hand sequence at arounf 160bpm and then just double the picking.

    But if he WAS, then holy shit is the only possible response.

    I've mentioned this guy before, this is some solo stuff, as AToE mentioned

    HE PLAYS WITH BOTH HANDS AT THE SAME TIME AND STILL OWNS!!! IF YOU ARE NOT A GUITARIST AND CANNOT REALIZE HOW CRAZY AND INSANE THIS IS, TRUST ME IT IS!!!!!!

    I have seen him play in Den Haag in 1989 at Park Pop ... the man was fabulous.
