Blues... with a twist

If you type 'acoustic guitar' into Youtube the top two places are taken by percussion and tapping maestro Andy McKee. The man is a big part of the rising popularity of the style over the last year or two.

Personally I love the style, possibly my only gripe is that the songs you hear using the technique usually all have a very similar folky or new age vibe to them. It made me think, surely someone can push it a bit further and meld the techniques with other styles.

It's with this in mind that the following video really caught my attention, this is a blues using the percussion / tapping guitar style. Cool stuff... nice to see someone opening things up and bit.
