I just ran across this Justin King guy and was amazed at this style of playing known as "drifting."
Tis very cool stuff and I thought I'd share it with some of you.
Hope you enjoy


Justin King


Andy McKee


Preston Reed


J. King


ETA: Thank you vanhippi for these 2 more additions:
Kari King (any relation to Justin?)


Stephano Barone


Peace,

Have you ever seen the movie 'August Rush'? Some good guitar work done in that film, too.

Wow I can totally respect this, having played the piano for 10+ years and always wanting to learn guitar but never getting around to it...

Yes, one of my favorites for both the playing and the story, good stuff and inspiring!
Thanks for the reply Mactire

I just love this Justin King style, talk about "out of the box" playing...

I know sum1one, and to play like this it seems it would be advantageous to learn as one is first learning to play guitar as opposed to later trying to master it. It makes me wish I had incorporated it way back when I first started.
Thanks for the reply!

Hey there friend

Glad you enjoyed them, and you don't need any lessons for a kazoo, just make some noise.
Can you imagine Archie pulling out a kazoo during the opening scene with Edith? haha

Peace,

I attempted this kinda playing once... I won't delve any further then that.

If you like this, you may like Kaki King

Very cool girl, and similar to the Andy Mckee stuff.

Stefano Barone is also very talented, using a loop station to create some outstanding sounds

Thanks. The first video was great. It looked to me he was playing slap bass, classical style finger tapping (like Stu Hamm), Rhythm & lead guitar combined with a little percussion all on a acoustic guitar!.... Very impressive.

One artist off the top of my head (many more would come to me after some thought) that tried doing that sort of stuff a while ago was Tommy Emanual of Australia. He has the Guitar, bass & percussion thing at the same time on an acoustic guitar in his version of "Lady Madonna"

My pleasure phatpackage

Thanks for the refernce to Tommy Emmanuel, I had never heard of him and he surely get's down!
I am always amazed at players that don't look at the guitar so much while playing.

Peace,

Having been around musicians my whole life, I must say this technique isn't seen often. Thanks for sharing!

Ya I should just quit!
In all seriousness stuff like this makes me wanna get my guitar and keep practicing some more! You can't get this good without putting any time into it! Thanks for the inspiration, bro.

(some of king's stuff kinda reminded me of some Tool, did you get that too?)
