OK is that a girl or a guy. I thought it was a girl till I read the posts and everyone is calling him a guy...I must be getting old cuz.

Anyway I would say the theatrics are good but that syncopated slap guitar or whatever he's playing doesn't really do much for me personally, but nice for a novelty.

It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!

Yes, this guy is amazing, love that slap style.

His style is similar to Justin King a guitar player from Portland?

See him here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=4V30JzwnKlA

Always trust Wiki

Plus if you look at some of his other clips, it's obvious he's a guy.

I'm with you on that one. The whole thing with the hair and the theatrics makes for good watching. But when I turned away and just listened I enjoyed it for a minute or so and then rather ran out of interest. I did think it would be a lot of fun to be the one doing it though. 8)

The gender confusion reminds me of a discussion we had here a year or so ago about guitar performer, author and site owner Jamie Andreas. Some thought he was a guy, others though maybe she was a girl. Turned out he was a guy. But had a 'gender realignment' around that time. So now he's a she. :wink:

This stuff is rather interesting to watch but I don't think I could listen to a whole CD. It gets boring pretty fast.

LOL! Yup, you don't really know a player until you know their shoe size.
