i love the way they use tapping, strumming and use the body of the guitar as a percussion instrument to make ALOT of sound come out of one guitar,

Don Ross is one of andy, eric, and antoine's biggest influences. Make sure you watch "How to Eat an Avalanche". It's pure genius.

Antoine Dufour is my favourite of the candyrat guitarists... actually he's probably my favourite guitarist overall.

I saw andy and don live in concert here in toronto. They REALLY know how to put on a show. I was pretty much just mesmerized the whole time looking at their hands.

Sweet, I had a substitute teacher in 7th grade that brought his guitar and played like this, it's really cool to see! But I would rather be able to play this guy, Justin King . It sounds like music from Battlefield 2 if anybody is familiar with that game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBQQ4X2i0BQ

That was pretty cool.

But I find this guy much more impressive.

I don't think this sounds good at all... he's good at showing off but he doesn't get a good melody

Don't kill someone to play like that, give up your left testicle or something. Killing people is not cool.
On topic though, I recently was introduced to these Candyrat fellows, and I immediately fell in love. Do they sell Candyrat records at stores, or do you have to buy online?

Michael Hedges. Seriously, check him out.


I've never understood the hype of Dufour. He is amazingly skilled. But alot of his stuff has almost no consistant rhythm, and I hate music like that. I prefer the other candyrat players like McKee, Ross, Andrew White, etc.
