    While i don't want to down grade him by any means, as he is very good, he's in an open tuning.

    With open tuning, the guitar is tuned differently to allow "open" to ring as a solid chord. therefore, one barre up is the next half step to the next chord and can easily be played with one finger.
    this is found a lot on slide guitar (lots of blues leads are in open C or open G tunings, and some times open Em tuning).

    as for breaking the guitar, the slap is really not that hard on the guitar... there's no way it would break by that

    Im saying he'd slap the thing out of his stupid hands. I know the Hulk isn't going to crush the thing with his thoughts.

    Maybe someone who tries to imitate him will...

    You got me. I just figured its a funny thought that the guy could literally shatter a guitar into hundreds of pieces due to his playing style.




    Way to bring me down. There goes my good weekend - I didn't piss myself once.
