    I tried a guitar class in highschool and I could barely get a G chord to sound right.

    That is absolutely awesome! I love acoustic virtuosos like that. With the heavy percussive factor to that piece I can't see it working on any other format the same way! Besides as far as brand goes I don't care if he bought it at wal-mart because it sounds just as good as any accoustic I've ever heard!

    P.S.- My axes include a Fender 12string accoustic and an ESP Mirage Custom.

    Usually that type of playing is used with a bass guitar called and is called "slap bass" (for an example>> see The Red Hot Chili Peppers or Primus). I don't remember the term used for normal guitar though.

    This guy is really good!

    The part where he plays way up on the fretboard is called guitar tapping. I don't know what the guitar term is for the wickly fast thumb strumming though. Tapping is pretty hard to do on an acoustic guitar because of the thicker strings. Most people I see tap on electric guitars, but tapping is pretty hard to do in general.

    I've tried it myself but I think I'll just stick to strumming and finger picking. When I try tapping it makes me look like I've just picked up a guitar for the first time. ;)

    Actually if you play an electric all you need to do is turn the gain up a little more it is quite easier with lots of volume!

    Yeah, that's one of the reasons why it's easier with an electric. You can just increase the sound volume on your amp so you can just barely touch the strings. With an acoustic you have to do a combination of "pluck tapping" to make more volume which is harder to do on thicker strings. At least from what I've experienced it's harder to do on an acoustic.
