Love it. The kid's got talent.
Euripides. That he does and just getting started. Also looks to all the right players past and present for inspiration. Atkins, Reed, Emmanuel, etc, so I don't think he'll be satisfied with mediocre.
Nice! Gentle. Relaxing. Sounds almost like classical guitar, except for the jazz harmonies. I could listen to that all night.Anyway, it's very soothing. I think we need that more than anything in this crazy age of loud voices and constant irritation.
Trevor, Yes, in this world we must carve out those things we want to surround ourselves with and ignore the uncivilized, etc.Check out his other offerings on youtube. Some good stuff there.
He is FANTASTIC........that thing he does around 2:40 is incredible....I'm going to Google him now and hear more. Thanks, I'd never heard of him. FABULOUS.
Funny...he gets that same little smile Emmanuel gets when he's playing...like they LOVE and are pleasantly surprised by what's coming out of that guitar as if they're not playing it. I like that!
Z, Just go to youtube.com, put his name in the search box. Lots of stuff to sample.As far as the smile. Yes, another musician like yourself would notice. As an aspiring guitar player I think there are a few main reasons players smile at certain points in their arrangements. Either they are using someone else's very clever way of playing something complex very simply, or they invented a way of playing something complex very simply or they are surprised or have surprised themselves at inserting such a beautiful bar into a piece. A lick as guitar players call it. Or just hearing someone else's piece of an arrangement plugged into their piece. Like using an Einstein equation in your cake recipe.And yes the best players never know for sure what the fingers are going to do, and are sometimes surprised and smile at what the subconscious and body mechanics create for them.
Z, as far as that technique at 2:40 Here is it's inspiration
He smiles a lot, but the The smile I noticed that fit my description come around 2:10 and 2:40, as thank you's to whomever he stole those chords and arrangements from... I think at this point, he's borrowing a lot of material but will in the future start generating some of his own magic.
PS - Love the ending.
