Searchbaring was fruitless. The Genie from San Fransico. He is incredible. You just have to watch.

Here's his bio from Mycult:

the genie

Born in Los Angeles and raised in San Francisco, The Genie is an avant-garde guitarist, performer, and musical pioneer best known to audiences for his 'scratch guitar' shows, a unique performance involving live looping, slide guitar, and beatboxing. In 2002 he made his debut in Montreal Canada at the Montreal DMC Championships and later at the Canadian National DMC Championships. Taking the Montreal music scene by storm he went on to collaborate with Canadian producer, DJ Horg, and recorded his debut CD, The Genie-Rebel Music in 2002. He was immediately signed to Montreal's High Life Music label (HLM), receiving Canadian distribution. In 2004 he returned to his native San Francisco where his performances immediately drew attention from the local media as he continued to stun audiences with his unique styles. Since that time he has recorded two follow-up CD's, The Genie-Entropic (recorded live in Hawaii) and Aquadry, a collaborative side-project. His music ranges various genres including electronic, hip hop, reggae, drum n bass, dubstep, middle eastern, bossa nova, and jazz. His broad range of musical interpretation has made fans of every generation and cultural background. Honing his Scratch Guitar show as a full-time performer for the past 6 years has catapulted him to an elite level of performance. In 2007 he was profiled in Guitar Player Magazine (June) and was featured on Current TV in a piece entitled "What is Scratch Guitar" which was voted number 1 and aired on national TV in the US and UK.

I liked it except the bits where he was sliding and getting it very out of tune. Purposeful or not, it just sounded bad.
