    Default Wayan Balawan!

    I just read an article about this cat from Indonesia who plays "eight-finger touch" guitar. It's a traditional folk technique that he adapted for electric.

    I can appreciate his ability to execute alot of those licks, but his playing/music is really not my thing.

    If you want to hear some good eight-finger technique, I'd reccomend Stanley Jordan.

    Has anyone seen that Japanese or Chinese kid that plays with a guitar around his neck and one in a fixed position and taps like he is playing a piano, I wish I knew how to hook a link I am like PC handicapped.lol But he is amazing as he is playing two different parts. You would think with all these Asian kid wonders there would be more famous adult players.

    The secret is a scalloped neck.
