Re: Tuesday's Flying Fingers

How odd. I never saw anything like that before. Passionflower is just amazing,  I thought us men couldn't multi task, but here we got a bloke playing percussion, singing, playing guitar and tuning all at the same time. I wish I could do one of those things properly.

They are so freaking good , it's crazy !
They played it effortlessly, and made the song have such a feel good aura about it.
I''d quit my job tomorrow if i could play like that.

Re: Tuesday's Flying Fingers

Thats just not fair, making it look so easy.  They could have at least stuck a few bum notes in there just to make me feel better. Nice one TF

John Butler's  "Ocean"  (original composition)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdYJf_ybyVo

Something a bit different this week ... fingerstyle on a 12-string. John Butler's another great musician from the land down under. I love the comment on YouTube from someone's 6-year-old daughter:

"How come he's not singing?"  followed by  "Ohhh ... the guitar's singing for him."  Well said!

Re: Tuesday's Flying Fingers

Never heard of John Butler, but what a player, great co ordination.  How do they learn to play like that?

Re: Tuesday's Flying Fingers

Good question, KIR ...

There's a lot of pick-less notes they use, by tapping the string in the frets. Mine won't give that level of volume or definition when I do it, and neither do several high-end guitars I've tried in several stores. No problem on the electric, due to the way the string vibes are captured magnetically. I suspect they're using a higher fret wire to enable this technique, which is vital to playing this style properly ... more research needed.

I've started noodling around with some of Tobias Rauscher's teaching on his "Fingerstyle Guitar Academy" website, and will be featuring some of his work in coming weeks:

Thanks for the interest, KIR ... it certainly is a style of playing that absorbs ones attention!

Such emotion in music.  I really adore when I can FEEL the music by simply listening.  The crescendos and decrescendos...

Spencer Elliott   "The Battle of Wonderland"   (original composition)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAxK1z-BUUk

Here's a great demo of another technique many finger-stylists employ, which are the two-finger harmonics they can get all over the fret board. Spencer uses them liberally & effortlessly throughout this song, but it's a very difficult thing to do ... just try it!

Periphery   "Scarlet"   (arrangement & cover by Mike Dawes)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmf54oNI6ts

It's amazing how well music from any genre adapts to fingerstyle. This song is by American "Progressive Metal" group Periphery, and Dawes' arrangement would easily convince a person that it was written for acoustic guitar.

Beautiful guitar playing - very talented.

Amazed at the length of his fingers as well.

Re: Tuesday's Flying Fingers

Thanks, TIG ...

He does have quite the long boney fingers, doesn't he? I have "long stubs", which makes speed like this challenging, not to mention trying to buy gloves that fit. Although I've got little hope of ever playing like this, I find watching these talented guys does give me some ideas to try now and then, as well as being just plain enjoyable.
