Discouraging for one who thinks he might be able to play, some day.

Too think he did that on a cheap Ibanez just shows you that tone is in the fingers and the soul..

This guy is very very good.
I'll give it a thumbs ups just for

not being a link to an acoustic cover with somebody slapping & punching all over the guitar like it's a set of bongos and doing 16,000 finger taps.
I don't like Hotel California

Probably weren't impressed that he never touched the top two stringy things and only hit the third one in passing.
I like it

That isn't a wound G though, right?

See, I think the opposite - video's like these show just how playable a song like this is. Until he goes rogue at the very end and plays some very high speed runs, he shows that the parts are relatively easy for an average guitarist.

Just don't be fooled into thinking you can do it with a wound G. G strings don't bend that way - he's got an electric set on that axe, I believe.

Yeah, that's kind of how I see it. He does do some pretty cool hybrid picking stuff, but that just takes some practice. I think the most difficult elements are the bends, but with a lot of discipline and practice (and the right fingerboard radius, setup, and/or light strings), even those are achievable.

Ernie Ball actually makes a set of light acoustic strings where the G isn't wound. I believe this is the gauge
