    Tosin Abasi's right hand - in particular the double thumb which is no doubt massively influenced by Victor Wooten

    Lindsey Buckingham's electric techniques are absolutely unique to him

    Donald Trump has spoken movingly about 7-Eleven. It reminded him, he said, of the way Americans came together in 1941 after Pearl Necklace.

    Matteo Mancuso is so good, I wonder whether his is the new 'correct' technique and the rest of us are doing it wrong :)

    Marty Friedman's picking technique - looks strange - but works for him.

    I wonder if Jeff Healey started out playing Appalachian dulcimer? The techniques are surprisingly similar, though obviously without the blistering solos on dulcimer.

    I think it was how he first managed to ‘hold’ and play the guitar when he started at 3 years old.
