    To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.

    Here is another guy playing the same

    piece, but not Funtwo (as I mistakenly said

    earlier)

    This may be the guy

    who wrote the arrangement, JerryC, who is reportedly from Taiwan.

    Here is an interesting article about

    "FunTwo", the guy who made the original video in this thread, one of the most oft watched video clips in

    *history*!

    Check it

    This gets more interesting by the minute. (well at least I think so :-) )

    Dedication is right. That also

    goes to show you what proper technique can do. He's very relaxed and meticulous in his technique. He is obviously

    well schooled. He's going to go far. The arrangement was nice too.

    Doc, read the Reuters article about

    him. He doesn't consider himself a musician; just a hobby because he "enjoys playing the guitar". He is currently

    studying information science in New Zealand.

    Now THAT's impressive. Not only they do an amazing performance, it's all synchronized to

    the music , including the timing of rise and fall of the objects.

    Circus are really at the edge of human

    being physical abilities, even though some have really sad backgrounds.

    BTW, no matter if the kid in the

    first video made mistakes and failures; not being a professional and at his age, it's indeed an impressive

    performance too. Thumbs up for him.

    That's impressive.. I don't know if he had too much

    spare time or he's just swinging around with those and being lucky
