Lap Tap guitarist Eric Mongrain

Tonight I've got a really special guitarist for you. Erik Mongrain is a truly excellent guitarist in the traditional sense, but he sometimes switches from the traditional style where the guitar is held against the player's chest to laying it horizontally across his lap. It's called lap taping and he's one of the finest of the genre. I've included videos of both his traditional and lap tap style below. You can also find more information on his website:
If the links don't take you there directly, cut and paste them into your browser. Alternatively, just go to his website as many of his videos can be viewed there. I hope you enjoy him as much as I do.
