A Little Too Good

Click on the link to hear an amazing acoustic version of "Somebody That I Used To Know."  I'm in awe of people who have the dexterity, control, musicianship, and talent to play a guitar like this.

Amazing.  Very very different, yet amazing.  Thanks for sharing MB!

Re: A Little Too Good

Wonderful arrangement...
When I hear a musician of great talent I'm reminded of a scene from "Amedius" When Salieri says something like"God has give me just enough talent to realise the true talent of a great composer" meaning of course Mozart..
I'm no Salieri.. but it rings true for me..
Thanks for the share..

Yeah, an "interesting approach"  but one that I don't know if I really enjoy. It's almost too much. It's hard to explain, but something's missing . . .
