One Handed Guitarist

Hey don't know if anyone here has heard of John Denner, and if so I apologize for the redundant post. Check out this guy's myspace video and his website: http://www.vanhalenoutpost.com/forum/

He was on Howard Stern this morning and after seeing it I am even more amazed. I think I am finally gong to put all of my gear on ibay and quit playing.

Here's some myspace stuff to check out:

Mods if this is in the wrong place please move it or delete it or whatever.

Re: One Handed Guitarist

Why would that make you want to sell all your gear? If anything it should inspire you. It shows you that someone can do anything they put their mind to. It certainly inspires me.

Re: One Handed Guitarist

It is inspiring, amazing that he accomplished that but man, his guitar sounds like crap buried in that reverb!

Re: One Handed Guitarist

I loved it tone and all, then again I'm used to burying my guitar in reverb to hide my poor playing. Great inspiration!

Very inspiring, truly amazing!

Just goes to show what you can do if you put your mind to it and don't give up easy.

Re: One Handed Guitarist

I fellow at my office talked about this guy the day before and went on how people with two hands say they sucked to him, get rid of gear etc..

I didnt say anything so not to start a debate.

Why give up playing over some one arm dude? I mean can he grab two boobs at once? No! So with that loss of skill he just channled it to guitar. Most of us dont practice as much as we should, its just that this guy did.

Now what about the dude who played for Bill Clinton with no arms? Talk about not grabbing boobs!
