This one shows his interesting left hand technique much better. He does most of the bending and vibrato with his thumb. He started playing like this because being blind he found it more comfortable to sit while playing. I really liked his shows because he was very energetic on stage

There is a huge thread and dedication thread somewhere on the forums for Jeff Healey. He truly was brilliant and somebody who showed that being blind isn't the end of being able to play guitar.

I have some vhs of him...superb feel, great blues. And when he stand up and play is just emotional...so sad he passed away.
