Thanks.

I have sent this along to a couple of players I know.

I am not sure whether such videos encourage or discourage!!!

Whatever, no denying this young fellow is very talented.

It's always very interesting to see someone approach an instrument in an unorthodox way. Without the video, I would have guessed that this was some kind of gut-string guitar or an acoustic baritone guitar. I saw a youtube amp demo where a fellow was playing an electric baritone guitar. I thought "you don't see that every day!".

Years ago, I played in a band with a female drummer. She was a good drummer/singer, but one day she brought her guitar to practice and played some SRV tunes. She was left-handed, and flipped the guitar upside down like Hendrix, but she didn't re-string the guitar, just played it upside-down. So every chord shape and scale had to be learned by ear, as she was out of step with the rest of the universe. But the result sounded like a conventional guitarist playing blues.

This musician had some interesting tuning system by the nut; I've never seen that before. Maybe it's a standard customization in the world of solo bass players of melancholic, acoustically tinged music (got that last bit from his website).

Thanks for sharing

Randy
