    Default Great young guitar player, amazing

    I've always been a fan of Michael Hedges and his style of music. But searching his music on Youtube I ran into this 20 something kid. Erik Mongrain, this is some of the best guitar work I've seen in awhile. I know some people who do the tapping thing just for show, but the melody of these songs are catchy and beautiful. I'm blown away.

    Yeah, I've seen something similar to that before as well. I really dig it.

    Although I really dig this, both songs sound quite similar. Looks pretty difficult to master.

    My thoughts are this.

    Incredible but I do agree both songs sound very similar. Left hand bass, right hand percusive with some tapped harmonics. Reminds me of Justin King except he plays it upright like a normal guitar.

    I would love to play like that but would think hearing that over and over would be a little boring.

    Here is my favorite acoustic player who happens to play in a more traditional sense.
