A friend sent me a link on this guy who is so good on guitar that I couldn't pass it up.
This was the first I'd heard about him, and although it's nothing good enough for me to go and seek out, it's good enough to watch him perform. I'd totally see this dude live, but it sounds like much of his U.S. gigwork entails contests and clinics and the stuff that never really goes beyond the gearheads.
Maybe I'm wrong-maybe the dude is a touring machine. Or maybe he's with a band where he occasionally goes it alone to strut his stuff. Like I said, I don't know anything about him other than he's Canadian, he won second place in some acoustic finger-picking contest in Kansas, he has a love of oriental clothing, and his video budget allowed for him to play in front of a green screen and he chose a never ending movement of clouds, lightning, and awesome sky visuals.
So if you can admit to yourself that the production value is awesome and admit that this dude is better than half of the guitarists on your personal "Best Guitarist of All Time" list, then you'll realize that Ewan Dobson has the most awesome video on You Tube right now.
Prepared to be blown away.
