    Whatchu think about this dude on Australia's Got Talent?

    Comments seem to be divided between "he's awesome" and "he's just playing one string + open tuning = nothing special."

    He seems to have those intonation frets on his guitar, though, which is cool.

    Bonus points for you nerds who noticed the part of his song that sounds like it's from Contra for NES

    Yeah, nothing too difficult to play, and a little dull sounding with the constant droning. But impressive to people who don't know any better.

    As far as this style goes, I prefer:

    Some pretty fluid/fast fingers on that right hand. I'd listen to more of his stuff based off that.

    I'd really love to develop some form of fingerstyle technique, outside of playing "Down In A Hole", I suck!

    that's really really easy with just a little bit of practice.
    Check out the song "Aquarelle" by Sergio Assad if you want to hear some lunatic shit when it comes to finger picking. Piazolla also has some awesome stuff. If you want something a little more modern check out something by Andrew York. Sunburst is a super cool song.

    I like this Aussie way better.
