Unique string skipping/tapping combination?

What do you guys think of this lead guitar technique:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3oVRJm-RBU

Please excuse the hype of the title on YouTube, I was trying to do something really different to get people to click on my video, but the video itself has got some serious content and the video does have an annotation link to my 2nd YouTube channel, which has instructional videos with tablature that will indeed show you how to play those exact licks/riffs note for note, if you are interested in doing so.

From the comments in my many threads on this forum, I think you might like my guitar playing on this one too :-) My first YouTube channel was getting kinda weird with very different content varying from songs that I wrote that will literally make you cry (see the comments in my other threads) to songs that will make you laugh, to this video..........so I had to delete some of my videos and move it to my second YouTube channel (the second channel has, and will have even more esoteric genres of stuff I wrote and already recorded and am in the process of uploading, ranging from jazz (bebop, modal, jazz/rock fusion, avant-garde jazz), bossa nova/samba, afro-cuban, rock, metal, blues, country, Middle-eastern, Hindustani, and world beat), which is the reason why you may notice two different YouTube channels.

So what you guys thinkz of it?

Yeah i liked the technique, it sounded cool. But i didn't get the part where the drums started to kick in? Is it a song or are those just random licks? But yeah you are a talented player for sure!

That whole piece was a much older recording that I re-recorded, this is the original recording:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2MsaXSZW54


For those people that are interested, I have instructional videos on how to play those licks/riffs note for note with tablature (part 1 has a brief explanation of my 2 YouTube channels then it goes into the lesson).
Part 1:

Part 2:

I'm currently recording the next video parts in the instruction series. I'm still getting over tendinitis in my left hand, I wasn't 100% in the first video, stamina still isn't where it was before

I recognize the fact that you apologize for the 'hyped' titles and descriptions in your videos. Still, I did not laugh or cry.

While the technique you present is adequate, either your sound and/or the application for it just isn't. I know I have crawled through exercises of the same vein but I wouldn't dare to market myself in the way you do on those videos. And I checked through a lot of instances on your channel, and most of it just sounds like random noodling.

No offense but - referring to yourself as a 'young prodiy'. Eh...
The technique is pretty much there but there's no real musical funtion to it.

I think you were looking at the wrong channel, you were probably looking at my guitar oriented channel. The crying inducing songs I was talking about are on my other channel--my singer-songwriter channel, like these two music videos:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxd2lYsFSq4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7-p3XcHWc4

and I was just saying that, because from my experience playing these songs, I've seen people crying after hearing those two songs, so I was just sayin'......

Or, in terms of funny stuff, this other video seems to make people laugh:

I found a recording in my CDs that I made about ten years ago, and I just uploaded it to broadjam, I almost forgot about this recording.

On this recording, I play some of those same licks in the video in post #1, except I play it almost twice as fast. As I mentioned before, I had some tendonitis issues in my left hand when recording the video in post #1, so this is a little better recording:
