C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas la guerre...

Rodney Branigan, Andy McKee, Michael Hedges etc etc. you gotta admire them, but you wouldn't want to actually listen to them ...

"you wouldn't want to actually listen to them"

Well you would.....but one song is enough !

I always think the guys doing this sort of thing (and there are quite a few who have tried variations on the same theme) are 'one trick ponies'. All they do are percussive, riff-based exercises in one key (using open tunings)

Ask him if he can do a song like 'Here There and Everywhere' or 'Someone To Watch Over Me' and see how he gets on!

Very clever trick, but boring to listen to.

First time I've seen a Freemason doing a musicaal turn(trouser leg)
I wonder what he's like playing one guitar - I imagine he's quite or probably very good.

Murray, I completely agree. With this sort of thing, played by the people you mention, I can hear lots of notes, but I really struggle to hear any actual *music*.

I have have never met any of these people, so I may be about to do them a huge dis-service, but I do get the impression of men (it's always men) trying to impress by saying, in effect, 'Look how clever I am', listened to by people who are impressed by such cleverness.

But I still can't hear any feeling, any personal expression, any pathos, any beauty, any music.

At 3:48 it's about 3:40 too long. Perhaps a thread prefix for 'acrobatics' would suit. I'm with the majority of posters here, finding not much music in all that sound.

Er, my remarks being about the first posting, not Steve Hunt's 4 hands posting.

Now, Adam Fulara (Melissa's link) is a very different kettle of fish. I could imagine paying to go to see him.

Adam Fulara is interesting and actually musical. Not sure about that guitar sound, though. And why do his first few frets look like that?

The consensus seems to be that it is possible to be too clever and actually forget that a guitar is for playing *music*. A guitarist playing some actual music.

Thanks for the link, Stower. That's my buddy Steve, the nicest guy you would ever care to meet and a hell of a player.

That first link, the guitar between his knees is definitely an Irish Fighting Guitar. Never seen so much duct tape!

I've seen two guitarists, one the late Dave Bennett, playing Ragtime and fingering each other's guitar.

I do believe that that is duct tape interleaved between the strings, and I would hazard a guess that the purpose is to dampen unwanted resonance from the length of string between the nut and the fret, resonance which the pickups would probably pick up.
