... but I thought I wanted to share!
The caption reads:
Vittorio Camardese in 1965 presents a new way of playing guitar, becoming the forerunner of a style. Years later, it would be called "tapping".
Some notes: he was a doctor, and had had to ask for a special permission go to to the TV studio. The guitar is not his, he just grabbed one from a friend...
He also says he's aware of no-one playing like this, he is an autodidact and has always done it this way.
Does any of you know if there's documentation of an earlier use of tapping?
