Yeah, this guy is amazing ! But I was wondering, does he still have his arms and just wanted to play with his feet, because that website doesn't say anything about him having no arms?

Big Toe bassist Mark Goffeney was born without arms smile.gif

Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.

as a human interest story, it can't be beat. very few things say more about the human spirit then seeing severely challenged people beat all kinds of odds and do remarkable things like that.

unfortunately, musically speaking, he does nothing for me. im in to guys like paul gilbert, where technical mastery is of supreme importance to be able to play the stuff im in too (prog metal). now, show me a guy/gal that can play "technical difficulties" with his/her feet, and i will bow to them.

I've seen one guy who played three guitars at once (one with his feet), and a couple of shredders missing half of their picking arm.
