Amazing.  He makes it look so easy.  I'd defintiely check him out live if he came to my area,

Gareth is a great technician with fast fingers. I first met him in the early noughties and he'd only been playing around 18 months (As his dad Graham - a great 12 string flat picker himself - told me) . He sat at the back of a song/guitar workshop I was doing. I said don't be shy and come sit at the front, thinking he was a real beginner and wanting to make him feel at home. When he got to play later - let's say I had a bit of a shock. He was way ahead of everyone there. He's certainly going places...

Are you kidding me? Holy Cow! I love how it looks like he's not even trying! Absolutely amazing, I'll have to check out more of his music...

I saw Gareth play this in Minneapolis at the Cedar Cultural Center. He's much more animated while playing live. He moon-walked while playing --- it was great!
