Simply amazing

Quebec acoustic guitarist Erik Mongrain combines tapping and slap harmonics to unique, hypnotic effect. The last acoustic player to blow me away like this was probably Kaki King, and I think I'm feeling Mongrain's compositional sense a little more. Might be the next Leo Kottke.

UPDATE! There's a good MeFi thread on Erik Mongrain right now, with some links to other fantastic guitarists as well.
