No matter how many times, or any new video I see him playing in I just sit with my head shaking and my mouth agape in amazement of his skills. JR I fully agree. Yes he is

But it really looks strange watching him play with matched grip!

That's what I found interesting about this video, he doesn't switch to traditional grip until towards the end of the solo.

Yes. He would win the talent portion, but would not score well on congeniality.

I’ve never seen this solo before, really different, for him. I liked it a lot!
