This is for those here that appreciate great musicians regardless of the style music they play.

This is a modern classical guitarist/compser the likes of which I have never seen. He is from Poland, teaches as a Phd at a univerity in Austalia.

Very different and talented...enjoy

wow that was very interesting, I especialy like how he manipulates not just the guitar , but the sound itself in the air by waving his hands and guitar creating tremolo effects.

mahalo for posting that.

if you like that you might like this as well. Ive been wanting to try something like that with the capos to get open tunings for playing a slack key style.

I may use some of his technique in the future.

He is also kind man. He actually took the time to view my YouTube page and comment on a video. That is akin to Van Cliburn finding something nice to say to Charlie Brown, but it felt great and I deeply appreciated the gesture. In turn, I am going make sure I do the same for others.

About your link: That has to be the most number of capos I have seen on one guitar.LOL

There is an interesting capo out called the "Spider" capo and I nearly bought one last week. I eventually decided I did not want to deal with the frets behind the capo on the open strings and so I am not going to mess with it.

Also, I realized later that did not spell Extraordinaire correctly...but it was close enough.

I've seen and tried thoes partial capos. Cool for getting high or low drones. Mostly I've seen them used for Keltic music. When those capos are used, the intervals between strings are the same as standard (unless an alternate tuning is used to begin with) whereas in ki ho'alu, the intervals between the strings are different from standard.
