   That guy is awesome but it's slap & tap and chime playing like Stanley Jordan. The guy also has two "Scruggs tuners" on that guitar originally invented but a banjo player named Earl Scruggs. I saw Chet Atkins in concert twice and he used a modified form of "Travis picking" named after Merle travis, formally known as "Cotten picking" which was named after Elisabeth Cotton who played south paw with the guitar upside down. Big fan of Chet Atkins here and now this guy too you showed. Thanks

I wonder if Tom has matching tattoos on his forearm and on his guitar.  Looks nice.
