He is widely considered the authority on the seven- and eight-string guitar, and continues to stun audiences with his ability to simultaneously bust out tasty bass parts, melodic leads and swinging rhythms. Critics have touted his genius technique, but it's his profound artistic sensibility that propels his original music.
