About two years ago, I was shown the following video:
The artist, Miyavi, is a very popular J-Rock artist (J-Rock is Japanese rock, plain and simple). I know the song is in a different language, and that annoys some people, but listen to the way he shreds that guitar. It's absolutely insane. He's insane. I wish I could learn how to play like that; even if I HAD to dress like that to gain the "power." It would totally be worth it.
Some of the noises that he makes during the song are fucking weird.
