Every guitarist should already know by now EVH did not invent tapping... This Italian guy had serious chops though, his tapping technique is more reminiscent of Steve Lynch and Jeff Watson's rather than EVH! (it is funny, that the little jazz vamp kinda sounded like ice cream man)
That guy is awesome, floored me when I first watched it a few weeks back, love it when he is asked if he is a pro and he responds " no, I just play in my free time" \m/. It surprises me people think tapping wasn't being utilised till EVH came along, he just made it popular, there's a heap of guitarist who were tapping way before Eddie. Either way Ed still rocks and so does this guy.
Steve Vai is VERY Italian.
Hmm, very interesting....
Maybe one day we'll add Michelle Stanza to that list of Italian virtuoso
Hell, who am I kidding?
Right now I can barely make it through Wonderful Tonight without blowing a few notes. LOL
