In the age of YouTube, it’s so easy to find impressive and inspiring videos by artists and musicians. Some artists include visual effects or trick camera work. Others, like fingerstyle guitar player Andy McKee, simply sit in a room and show off pure, raw talent.
The video was originally posted back in 2006 – an oldie but a goodie – and is the perfect example of how sometimes, bending the “rules” of guitar playing is a great idea. And with that kind of talent, you can make an impression even without other instruments backing you up. McKee has continued on to release six studio albums, create tablature books, and work with artists like Josh Groban and Lee Ritenour.
