I dont want to diz this, but his tappings are very tight, fast and excellent, but thats basically all he does. That and bends ofc.
I got a friend who plays a lot better, more intuitively and adds a lot of interesting surprises when he plays, so for me this isnt all that ot of the ordinary.
He's very good, i'll give him that, but I would prefer to hear him improvise instead of just playing a fast tune. The tempo originates from the drums in this instance, not the guitar, so its kinda misleading for me.
He makes some mistakes, but that is to be expected when playing uncut, very few plays as well live as in a studio, Dreamtheater is an exception though, their concerts are so similar to their albums its quite unbelievable.
Tapping is a very nice technique, and if you really like the sound of it you ought to get "Freak Kitchens" album "Move", but there are so many guitarists out there who specialise in playing fast instead of innovatively, and its a real shame, its sort of like the eighties all over again.
Oh yeah, get some Dreamtheater albums for some marathon speedplaying.

This one is a LOT better
Excellent control on the overtones or flaggiolet, I dont know the proper english word for this.
The intro is VERY rock n roll, gets a bit boring since he plays it over and over, but since its a very tech riff its okay.
Excellent tapping, nice improv, very progressive choice of melody in the last third of the song, he just displays a much more varied playingstyle on this one.

I know. I liked the tune best from wedding so I posted that one. Check out the sweep picking video he has out. A bit rough uncut, but sweeping is crazy.

although these are pretty impressive none of it is very original.. dark chords, speed moves, tapping.. etc.. oh well, different things motivate different people..
