i didn't click the link and i don't even know who the dude is but i'm sure he plays the way he does because he is better than you and simply because he can.

Cause he is also blind. His sense of touch forced him to learn that way. Sad for Canadian music to lose him last year to cancer, the man had a rough life methinks. Oh well, he got to play with some legendary musicians like SRV.

Hey. That's the guy from that Patrick Swayze movie...



Surely it's possible to learn guitar the normal way and be blind also..

From what he has said in interviews, when he got his first guitar, it was placed in his lap and his parents wanted him to learn the regular way but he insisted that he play it on his lap. Honestly, I don't see how he frets notes like that, I would imagine the callouses on his finger tips were extremely tough whereas the rest of his fingers would not be so from the way he presses on the strings.

So? He chose to play the way he did because he liked it and wrote some amazing songs in his career.
