Erik Mongrain: Amazing Guitar Tapping Videos

I mentioned Erik Mongrain a while back on here, and last week I was browsing around my library looking for a few instrumental tracks.

Since my original post, it looks like he’s re-done his site a few times. The old links I have to his videos are all broken, and since I found a few of those videos on his YouTube page tonight and… I figured this would be a good time to share.

He’s not the first one to play guitar in this manner (I’m reminded of Jeff Healey from back in the 80’s), but I do very much like his style. I know that Mongrain plays guitar normally as well… but I’ve only really fixated on these two songs in particular. Below are PercusienFa and Airtap respectively (PercusienFa being my favorite).

  1. Very cool stuff. Check out this vid by Stanley Jordan. Similar style. This one’s Somewhere Over the Rainbow. His Eleanor Rigby is also brilliant.
