    Thanks @Mrfredsporty . But where do I find him? On YouTube? Is his channel the same as his name? A link would make it easier even if that’s the case. But again, thanks for the heads up.

    Ok, I found him. Yep, he’s on YouTube and his channel is Shun Ng. Here’s a ling:

    So here’s a specific video I watched that displays Shun’s unique and spectacular style:

    Notice that he’s using a custom guitar with adjusted intonation so the guitar can be in an open tuning. The bridge, nut and frets are all at an angle.

    Ok, this may be a little over the top, but I’m gonna link one more of his videos:

    Here, he is playing Bohemian Rhapsody solo, with only a guitar and his voice. What’s amazing to me is how he has imitated the piano parts throughout the song. Of course, he throws in some harmony at times and naturally he gives us very credible renditions of Brian Mays guitar solos. But yeah, that’s pretty standard stuff on the guitar, though he does it masterfully. But it’s how he imitates a piano that is very instructive to me. It’s a technique/style I hadn’t seen before and it something that could be used in our playing as it’s not super incredible skill, just really creative use of the guitar. Of course, you’d have to know how to translate piano riffs and chords to the guitar neck.
