No, it's shredding for the sake of showing off. Boring.

he still uses the arm to pick. he's just relearned how to pick, which is essentially the same as learning to pick with a pick between your fingers. as cool as that is, the idea of playing guitar like that isn't really a big deal to me. that being said, what i do find very impressive is the courage and determination of this guy, to continue doing what he loves against the odds after whatever sort of accident caused that. many other people would have simply given up after that and maybe learned harmonica or something, but this guy wasn't gonna just let it stop him. that to me is a million times more impressive than learning to play with a hand missing.

also, i am quite impressed by the fact that he doesn't try and sell his playing as if it is a handicap. he could have very well called the video "one handed man plays Eruption" or something to help get views or put stuff like "one handed" or "handicapped" or "disabled" as tags (the way that people put "12 year old solo" or "played by a girl," as if young age or gender make your playing better), which to me shows a lot of character. he genuinely seems like a good guy. he could have sold his "disability" to get more views, but instead chose to just put up a normal video look any normal person would. he's saying "hey look at me shred, i'm a great guitar player" instead of "hey, i have one hand but i play guitar, so it's a million times harder, give me views because of my disability and not because of my talent." again, this display of character impresses me more than playing without a hand.

of course, that wouldn't have meant anything if he couldn't play for shit, but he's a good player, mutilated or not.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

CHEATER!! He mounted a pick on his stump!!

(seriously tho: I saw this guy a couple of years back and already he kicked ass -> the thing is he claimed to have been playing for just a year, which I found kinda hard to believe...)

That guy has mad skill. Even if he's got a pick on his stump.

My ex did the same. Cheated on me and then acted like I'd given her sister a facial. Women are retarded.

I like how the guy with a stump for a picking hand gets insulted and yet the pit in filled with way worse fully capable guitarists. . .

To be fair, it was recorded while Eddie was warming up without his knowing. I hate shredding for the sake of showing off too but I don't think there was anything inappropriate about Eruption

I suck because I lack talent and skill. My reason is valid TS!

But that is amazing that he still can play guitar after losing a forearm though.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

My thoughts right there. I don't care whether or not Eruption is a hard piece to play(And yes, I can play it too)

This guy has no right hand and fingers, or arm for that matter. The fact he can play guitar at all is impressive. The fact he can play it accurately is amazing.

And as much as it's overrated technically with hands, doing the tapping at the end with the stump is incredible - Unlike the fingers, the shoulder and upper arm are not designed for quick, small, repetitive motion. Tense up your arm and pick from your shoulder, you'll see what I mean. The amount of effort put into getting that tapping with the stump alone is awe-inspiring.

impressive

eruption sucs though, there's tons of shredder that really give me a genuine emotional reaction to their guitar magic but eruption is really just a pile of wank with a fun tapping secton
