Andy McKee – an inspiration to guitarists

I think what makes the video appear more remarkable is his unorthodox guitar-playing style, his rhythmic, over-the-neck tapping, hammer-on and pull-off techniques. But not only does he have a creative technique the beauty of his music is astounding and quite inspirational.

Check out his other videos on YouTube for more guitar delights and look out for the guitar harp (guitharp?) too. (While you’re at it why not also search for Eric Roche videos? Another extraordinary guitar player, who regretably died last year of cancer.)

You can download no fewer than six MP3s from his website too. He’s both talented and generous. (And in my opinion looks less like Meat Loaf now that he’s shaved his head — looks almost as cool as his guitar playing.)
