Frideo. The following is an incredible example of fingerstyle guitar playing, by Andy McKee of Candyrat Records. I don't how this is done, how a guitar can be played this way, but I think you'll agree that it's pretty amazing.

I actually prefer Antoine Dufour, also of Candyrat, but this track by Andy is not to be missed.

That is quite amazing! I've never seen the like. Tim liked it too, but he has seen it before he said. Probably at your house.

It is pretty amazing. I think I'll post a video of Antoine Dufour sometime soon as well.

Joel: This style is definitely influenced by Don Ross. Good call.

You're falling behind, Piet! You'll have to start calling your column Montheo rather than Frideo!
