Something about him pisses me off and as such never been able to get into his music. Same thing goes for Dave Matthews Band.

Hi Michael
I won't say that i am a big fan of his music , but not many players are able to play like he does with a 12 string =>

I know what you mean Mike, why make things difficult on a 12 string acoustic, maybe he just wants to be different, but i quite like his sound.

Never heard a 12 string played quite that way before; I admire any music that is 'unique' even if I don't particularly like the song. I guess for me that clip falls into that category.

I found it really enjoyable to watch just from a technical standpoint, but I have to agree with previous comments that there is just 'something about him' that I find disturbing.

Still, the most ingenious use of a 12 string acoustic I've ever heard. Can't help thinking he'd be better off with a Ricky 12 string electric, but I guess it's a case of being comfortable with yer tool!
