Video of Andy Mckee. This guy is as creative as it gets. Thought is was worth sharing.

This guy is one of the best a finger style acoustic. Came in second at the 2005 Canadian Guitar Festival's Finger style Guitar Championship and first place in the 2006 competition. He also placed third at the 2006 International Finger Style Guitar Championship. I seriously think he is the best out right now in terms of creativity.

I have all of his albums and he's amazing. His latest albums Still Strings with Tommy Gauthier is worth a listen.

After all the arguing, I never thought we would ever agree on something. That was pretty impressive though.

Malmsteen isn't too bad on an acoustic either. I just don't care for the sound of the nylon strings.

This guy isn't half bad either if you can get past the ninja costume and stupid background. It gets pretty cool around the 2:00 mark.

And finally. No discussion about crazy acoustic guitar would be complete without speedball. Zakk Wylde is crazy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlxcKJZ5MAk - couldn't find video of him playing the song but here's the audio. Pure insanity.

This one has been around for a while.
I thought it was worthy.

Watched em all; Emmanuel still wins... Tapping on a guitars body just doesn't compare to absolutely violating the thing... No one shreds acoustic like this guy; nooooo one.

It's not all about fast, it's about feel.
Sometimes it's about where the music isn't!
There are some vids of the two of them on stage.
IMO Monte wins easy.
Look at his guitar....that's violated!

When it get too fast it sound like a weed waker!

That pretty much sums it up. One guy that could really play fast and had a lot of feel is Stevie Ray Vaughan. I love his stuff.
