    Talk about some absolute humbling playing. Fun to watch, and frustrating at the same time. Awe inspiring:

    I love that video (and a few others from the same day). I go back and watch them every six months or so.

    Been over 6 months for me, but it is great to be reminded of these vids and yes, it is humbling.

    I've been a fan of Scotty for years. His skills are amazing, but he's not really known as a guitar "hero".

    His instructional video is just plain scary!

    That was amazing.

    I like the humor in the guy on the right...very non-chalant. Did you catch him fretting with his hand over the top of the neck too?

    I also am a HUGE fan of Scotty.
    I think Mr. Sexton got schooled that day...as good as HE is!

    I wonder what it would feel like to be able to do that on a guitar.
    His right hand is just...deadly.

    I'll never know...

    Those guys are insane. Scotty = on another planet.

    I can see how they're doing it, but my hands just can't work that way! Sigh.

    But WOW!

    That is shredding at it's finest.
    I love watching him play and there are vids out there of him making a Peavey bandit sound VERY boutique.

    Reminds me of the Chester and Lester recoding by Mr. Atkins and Mr. Paul. Beautiful!

    I can play like that with my eyes closed, when I'm dreaming.

    Not familiar with either guy, terrific stuff. What really caught my eye was Saxton's knack for elegance. He has all the chops, but seems to prefer a sense of focus, of just what was needed to propel an idea, tight such that every bit counted. Perfect complement for Anderson's unrestrained fluidity solidly anchored in melody. Remarkable, both guys.
