Remember the movie August Rush?
Have you ever seen the movie August Rush? It’s a story of a young musical prodigy with a unique way of portraying his music. One of the scenes in the movie shows the main character, August, playing the guitar in a slapping manner. It’s not the typical way of playing the guitar but it definitely shows the various ways of playing the instrument. Well, while everyone else is busy watching the Euro 2012 matches, I was watching different youtube clips of Buskers from all over London, and then I came across this video:
Seeing it in a movie is one thing but one on gets to experience this way of playing in real life, it gives a different perspective. Still, though I’m still watching this form of playing the guitar through video, it still amazes me how different and beautiful this form of guitar play really is. Just goes to show how versatile instruments can be played. This has to be one of my favorite buskers of all time even though I never really had the chance to see it in real life.
