Hey, i known there are a lot of amazing guitarists on the Tube, most of them with CandyRat record but there is something about this guy that blows my mind.

He's Canadian and apparently, he won every finger style guitar contest he entered and i can understand why. He looks more like a football player than a guitar virtuoso. I'm not sure about the weird outfits and backgrounds but the guitar...wow.

The question is of course unanswerable....how can we compare him to others if they too are unknown? We must wait untile they are all "known."

Thanks for the post, the guy's something all right, sort of Kottke-like, really makes that guitar work. Looks to me like he has freakishly large hands.

And how will you enquire, Ollinger, into that which you do not know? What will you put forth as the subject of enquiry? And if you find what you want, how will you ever know that this is the thing which you did not know?

I have played so long that I don't care about technique anymore. I have seen so many amazing players that can rip but their notes don't speak to me.

That being said, this guy is a great player. I really enjoy the tone that comes from how clean he frets the melodic notes, and most importantly, he is always thinking of killer parts. It sounds like a video game soundtrack, but it works well.
