Open guitar chord by WSHS student, Christopher Tamwoy. Thanks for reminding me how untalented I am, Chris. Jerk.
You are indeed quite the salty fellow.
cmon better than firsties, right?
The asshole is probably blind too.
I was waiting for him to shake it like a polaroid picture!
is this video from the 80's?
Very talented, but there are many other artists who also play with this style. i.e. Eric Mongrain
You're a tool.
This is exactly like the movie "August Rush"
Or the movie "August Rush" is exactly like this
We heard yo this first time
Yo, I think the music in the movie "August Rush" is exactly like this!
first thing that came to mind
this is made of awesome sauce
good for him. but to clarify, this method of playing guitar is not as difficult as playing normally. the guitar is tuned so that all you need to do is lay your finger across the fret board to produce a chord. the only thing he's doing is making it look cool by hitting some harmonics. i'm not hating, its great to see a young kid be able to play this well, but there are many more prodigies out there that would blow this kid away.
exactly. try listening to that style of guitar playing without watching it… still impressed?
You are absolutely correct. I was going to point out the same thing.
And your talent in high school was … let me guess … armpit farts?
agreed, nope…. I play a lot of guitar myself and even wrote a song in this style, check it out here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsXGs9HmQCQ
Difference being with mine, it doesnt look as flashy as this guys, but i actually try and create SOME sort of melody in the song. not overly a fan of this guys tune, or this style in general anymore….its all flash and showing off how you can play on your lap, easy tune to impress the ladies, but boring to a real musician unless you can really destroy a song.
Justin king and khaki king to name two of them. Open "C" tuning does wonders. I totally agree
My favorite would be Led Zeppelin's Bron-Yr-Aur. Open "C" tuning as a masterpiece.. Just my opinion
Reminds me of Jeff Healey, He was awesome.
This guy is nothing like Jeff Healey, other than having the guitar sitting in his lap. Jeff Healey was great. This kid is just playing an open chord and hitting a few harmonics. Really not a big deal. Jeff Healey played the hell out of the guitar.
This kid is awesome! And SoabStiven can eat a dick for advertising on this post.
Sounds like Rob Kilgore.
if you like this, check out andy mckee on youtube. you're welcome
I guess sucking dick is lucrative.
Like a young Stanley Jordan!………… bravo!!!
NOT at all like Stanley Jordan. This is barely the tip of the Stanley Jordan iceberg.
I side with nope.
Open chords……hmmmm. Grab a pick and get to playing
Amen, David P. I totally agree. Playing a slight variation on an open chord and slapping a few harmonics aren't really that impressive.
I also get annoyed with how crowds go crazy over guitar stuff that really isn't that great. Crowds can be so ignorant.
Almost as ignorant as some chivers.
Yup. Or maybe naive.
If you like a different style of playing you should check our rodrigo y gabriela…she's destroys the guitar.
They are amazing!
Seriously, why do people scream at this kind of thing? Scream while listening to music you supposedly like? GREAT JOB ASSHOLE.
Sounds decent but as other people have said he is basically playing an open tuning and his sense of timing isn't that great…
Wow awesome talent, all i could think about was that movie august rush. great movie even though robin williams played a freaky character
push the boundaries. people like this are the reason music/art expand.
as Howard replied I am alarmed that anybody able to earn $9517 in 4 weeks on the internet. did you read this webpage ℙIE21.ℂℴℳ
A Black person on the chive and their not being made fun of. Minus the asshole peanut gallery knows as comments.
what, that was sick! puts my guitar skills to shame!
