Just had a go myself at playing with my feet, the only chords I could get were an A and Em. And strumming was tricky to say the least! This guy has got talent!

Like alan14 I am you tube deprived at work, but I have seen this before - indeed it is truly inspirational. I am a hobbyist guitar player and I will probably never be as good as this guy, I tried with my feet a while ago and broke a string!

Not a bad name for a guitarist!

Why?

What's a paranoid android got to do with guitar playing?

There are a number of other people who have similar disabilities on You Tube, who are worth checking out.

The same applies to some very young musicians, whose skills are absolutely extraordinary.

Now if only I could get anywhere near that standard :O(

Hank Marvin...

The only time I've ever played with my feet was when I, accidentally, stood on my accoustic. Anyway, I have enough difficulty playing in a conventional fashion - even after 40+ years at it.
