*Agree. It's an unusual playing technique he has. All the classic and correct positioning - but with those reversed
But he is a brilliant player. He demonstrates about 5 different "right-hand" (i.e. plucking hand) techniques during that solo, Great command of harmonics too - although they are easier to get to chime clearly on a piccolo bass. At least they were the few times I got to play one.
However, when it comes to the absolute master of harmonics, that title has to go to jazz guitarist Jody Fisher. That gent can do 16th note chromatic harmonic runs. Anybody that ever played (or tried to play) "false" or "artificial" harmonics knows how hit and miss it can sometimes be. Jody doesn't seem to have any problems on that score. He just does those glissando-y sweeps like he's playing a harp. And he does it so naturally that half the time people don't realize it's harmonics they're hearing rather than fretted notes.
Jody is also a phenomenal instructor. He was a mainstay at the now sadly defunct National Guitar Workshop. I was fortunate to get the chance to sit in on some of his clinics and classes when he was in CT at the workshop.
Here's some examples of what you could expect when Jody was showing you how something worked:
BTW, Jody's guitar is a (Steve) Klein
in case anybody's wondering "What in the name of all that's holy is he playing???" (Most guitarists do btw.
)Recommend some music videos to me!
