Who Was That Faceless Guitar Picker?

Meet YouTube user FretKillr.

92 videos of a mystery man absolutely shredding an acoustic guitar, complete with vocals and occasional harmonica. That people of this kind of raw talent can languish in obscurity while the current crop of Top 40 crap get record deals is evidence that our civilization deserves the coming fire.

All of the vids are excellent stuff, but I have a few suggestions to get you started.

I'd buy any CD he put out tomorrow.

    Tragically, he does not. He's yet to reveal who he is, and I've been monitoring his YouTube channel in hopes of getting that info.

    Did anyone copy the lyrics to "Would You Like To Play The Guitar" and if so would you share ?

    Thank you,
