I will stick with Kelly.

This is much, much more my preference to listen to, and to play.

I'm not a fan...I did last for 60 seconds, so I think I may be getting more tolerant...sounds like the typical Candyrat label muzik...

And as someone else said, it sounds like I'm in an elevator, and I'm hoping the elevator is a fast one...

Each to his own...

Mahalo for the acoustic gymnastics.
How does he drop tune to a semi tone so easily, smoothly and in pitch?
Guess I will never know.... He has nice long musician fingers too.
I wonder what Sabicas or Segovia would think sitting across from him boom chuka boom detune?
Maybe they will come up with a hinged neck tremolo? Grab the headstock and pull back for all 6 string pitch raising. Or a moveable fretboard on a rails?

Keith Banjo tuners https://www.beaconbanjo.com/product-...d-tuning-pegs/

As PiousDevil said, I believe Jon Gomm was the first to apply the tuner/technique to guitar. At least he was the first player I've seen using it.

I am surprised to see the tuning pegs changing the sound when the strings are clamped with a capo. Never saw that before.

Check out Adrian Legg. Not saying he's the first, but he's been doing it since the 70's/80's. He doesn't use it on every piece and does not use percussion like Gomm and others.

Well, I think "we" need to come to terms with the land of tappy....

this style, popularized by Andy Mckee and candyrat label artists, and others,is I think..."newish" for many of us older players....but, now at this point feels like "well ya we've seen that" and so I think lots of acoustic players kinda see this like when Eddie Vanhalen did his "tappy" thing, and it was new,but then became old real quick, particularly when every other artist tried to stick it in somewhere in their solo

so to me there is this generation who did not grow up with this style, and then there are younger players who this "tappy" guitar playing is "normal" or common.

and to me its an each his own kinda thing...

BUT as a life long player and person who has been involved in other dexterity based pursuits, I think we need to give the guy props for basically chewing gum, patting his head while hoping on one foot, all at the same time...

and really appreciate his ear and touch as far as the tuner tweaks, because the challenge to me beside being able to grab it and turn it real time in sync with the song, is the muscle memory in conjunction with pitch id in order to turn them just the right amount and have them "land" back in tune...because if he does not, the rest on the playing would be out of tune....

so I thought it was pretty neato

and well I'm glad he decided to spend his time in his room developing this skill rather than developing the level of his character in a video game

For those who think that who does a bit of tapping is only relying on gimmicks, give Antoine Dufour a listen seriously amazing musician with an incredible ear and Sense of Melody.

It's just pleasant background/mood music.
This is an interesting point. I generally enjoy the Candyrat artists and I enjoyed this rendition of Careless Whisper. But it is true that watching the performance is a big part of it the appreciation. Just listening, I hear the complexity, but if it I heard this being played somewhere without my attention being deliberately called to it, I don't think it would move me. There just isn't a lot of emotion in it, it's all about the execution. George Michael, and the sax player, gave the song poignancy and passion.

Now, someone like Michael Hedges, different story. Watching him is fun, but his music is exciting without the visual. My humble opinions, of course.
