    Tapping is not the easiest technique to master, let alone with two guitars. Incredibly impressive.

    Ok then. I will never touch my guitar again. No point now, as its all been done.

    I always wonder if IQ tests capture any of that. You know what kind of mental processing speed that takes? Not to mention co-ordination? I’m proud of the fact that I can brush my teeth and delete emails simultaneously. This is just a wee bit harder than that.

    @michael reynolds: A lot of it is just muscle memory. I find myself messing up if I actually think about that stuff while doing it. I can’t comment for him though as he’s taken the concept to a level I’ve never even come close to doing.

    I agree with Michael Reynolds. Most of this stuff is muscle memory but this guy has taken it to a whole new level! Very impressive stuff.
