Amazing guitar video: Preston Reed performing at TED

Preston Reed, the legendary percussive guitarist who has influenced the likes of Kaki King, Andy McKee and the most watched guitarist from South Korea on YouTube, the young Sungha Jung, was invited to TED last year, where he performed.

Reed invented this unique style where he uses his fingers, thumbs, fists and hands, which sounds like a full band. His rhythm section hammers the guitar body as he creates melodies with intricate finger work all at the same time.
