This is the guy that made me want to be great at guitar. Before I seen this video, I was naively under the impression that only the really famous guitar players were amazingly talented, and that they had some special quality that other people just don't have. After seeing this rather average person destroy that guitar with stunning technique, I realized that the only special quality that all the guitar heroes have is dedication.

Enjoy biggrin.gif

This guy annoyed me from the start because of how he titled his videos. I hate Ego, and just didnt appreciate someone making there videos titled "Insanely Amazing" - For the sheer fact it wasn't laugh.gif

I think it was his friend that put the video up for him biggrin.gif He's Brazilian, and as far as I know, doesn't know any English. But yes, it is a bit boastful laugh.gif

Indeed, I was really blown away by his combination of different styles. Nobody, no matter how blessed they or anyone else thinks they are, can play like that without lots and lots of practice biggrin.gif

He is an awesome player! and yes, dedication is the key. Behind each amazing guitar player, there are lots of practice hours. There is not a big secret about it. It could take more or less time depending on the person but everybody needs to work hard.

Now here's a guy who doesn't believe in being restricted to one hand position ! smile.gif

Not easy to do that stuff on a Strat either, those things are as dry as a bone (in my experience) wink.gif

He plays in front of the beat quite a bit though, especially in the main riff. Maybe that'll make you guys feel better ! laugh.gif

Funk-shred? It's pretty impressive, bit killer on the effects. Got a collection of various techniques under the belt!
