Okay... so I'm a huge fan of Youtube, as most people who know me are aware... I love to find people who put their own unique spin on things, and this guy is certainly is. His name is Adrian Holovaty, and he's a musician from Chicago. He seems to have a pretty loyal following on youtube, and for only having played guitar since 1997, his work speaks for itself in it's sheer amazingness. He did a Radiohead remix contest and was even mentioned in Rolling Stone magazine. His website, holovaty.com has loads of great info, not just music oriented. Should you be interested in hearing him live, and live in Chicago...
And as he adds- to anyone interested in his music... "Sometimes I sit in with various bands in Chicago, including Alfonso Ponticelli and Swing Gitan, a gypsy jazz band. Check out the upcoming gigs. The band is highly recommended, regardless of whether my dubious rhythm guitar playing is involved! I also play frequently at the Edgewater Lounge with the Chico Malo Trio, on Sundays from 4-7 p.m"
I've included below some of my favorites of his work- and look forward to hearing more from him in the future!

Guy has mad skills. In a world filled with auto-tune, I can really appreciate instrumental music. Nice post!
