    From what I can tell, that style was first made popular by Michael Hedges, or at least he was the first I was aware of. I’m glad to see others continue to carry the torch.

    He's very good but I wouldn't say he's original.

    I posted about him about a year ago. He is a seriously good player but, I can see the pyrotechnics wearing a bit thin.

    Still, Im glad he is having success and think over time he will do great things.

    Yeah, Hedges truly seemed to use it as a compositional method more than “hey look at me”, but this kid is on a talent show after all. He needed to come out swinging. I just don’t know if he’s always that aggressive.

    Van Halen doesn’t do anything these days.

    It’s one thing to be able to sit in your bedroom and record a YouTube doing that, but that kid on America’s got talent walked out on stage in front of millions of people, with one shot, and played it flawlessly. Beyond impressive

    He probably gets kicked out of a lot of music shops. Shop owners would have a heart attack seeing him come in and slap up an acoustic and end with a neck bend.

    As others have mentioned that style has been evolving for decades perhaps longer .
    My speculation is that it may have inklings as far back as when Flamenco style music and guitar became popular in the mid 1800's
    As far as that performance ? Obviously the kid has talent and is quite good at percussive guitar. However it has been my personal experience, that a little bit goes a long way, and frankly I personally would tire of it after one or two songs.

    No, not at all.

    What VH does is on an electric and lacks the percussive element where he is mimicking drums. He also wasn't nearly extensive with his approach as this kid.

    Not taking anything away from Eddie but this kid is more Hedges than VH.

    In a Bryan Baker interview, he emphasized how rhythm matters so much more than harmony, even melody so. We connect with those before other elements of a song.
    Micheal Hedges was amazing. I hate guys playing G-D-C endlessly while others are tripping.
