Mike Dawes – Jump (Solo Acoustic)

Sometimes YouTube recommendations are exactly what I need that day.

This. Is. Incredible.

Watch all the way through, he makes it elegant, effortless. And that solo/breakout bit… 

Damn.

      Cool I’ll check that out, thanks! Man, I mean, Jump is a full band and keyboard song and this guy effortlessly makes it sound like the whole band makes sense on one acoustic guitar. Incredible.

          Interesting! I got lost in watching the technique. Probably wouldn’t have mattered what was being played so long as that wizardry was on display. That I love the song just made it even better!

            It’s nothing against him. What I mean is there is so much happening in Jump for him to play. All the changes and variations. I meant it as a compliment. I don’t think it would be the same video if he was playing Baby Shark, lol

    I saw him opening for Justin Hayward. When Justin and his band came on stage, Mike played guitar (along with Justin) for the rest of the evening.

    Check out his version of Somebody that I used to know:
