Does this style have a name?

Solo lap tapping.

Beautiful. Never heard him before.

Nero Galon 12-11-2012 04:17 PM

Ah thanks... Yeah he's really good.

It's just two handed tapping, there's a fair few solo acoustic guitarists that play like that.

Cool sounding technique, but the songwriting is seriously lacking. If he could manage to make interesting progressions and such it would be better, and maybe not have such pretentious song names.

I don't know, but what I do know is that I'm beyond sick of hearing this style of playing.

I'm not knocking their talent or anything, but if I never hear another guitarist doing this, I will die a happy man.

Interesting. I've never heard anyone speak of this.

I also just realized that Ben is the guitarist from the band InMe.

Wait, did you think this was the only and/or first guy to do this?

I tend to to agree. I just stick with old uncle Tommy E. Still the best. :D

Obviously not. Its just i've never seen it done before and this is the first i've seen. I've never heard of anyone else who does it either...

Haters gonna hate I guess :)

Seen something similar before once or twice. I liked this and it's interesting that it opens up to some things you wouldn't normally be able to do with a more classic position of playing (and takes away some others). Don't think I'll be practicing this, but good luck to the guy.
