Justin King the Guitar Master 2  JUSTIN KING THE GUITAR MASTER 2

Hi everyone!
I was suprised how many people were interested in the "Awesome guitar strumming shot". Remember, the guy playing a guitar in incredible way? We were looking for any hint of getting the guys name. Andrew contributed to the discussion to that article:

Ya, that guy is Justin King. He's pretty much my new god. It sounded like a funked up version of knock on wood, but it could be a completely different song. Look him up for an absolute must see video of him playing a double necked acoustic, and tapping like a madman, the video is on the site of the guy that made the guitar.

I dont know how many of you heard about GoogleVideo BETA, but you can find there lots of interesting movies. I searched for Justin King and another great performance!!!

Thats the one. Theres a few other videos on his website (or something like that). I made a mistake, the first song was called phunkdified, it was not a "funked up version of knock on wood". If you guys like this song, there is a video somewhere of him playing this on a regular acoustic, and I almost prefer that one. I'll look around for it.

yeah and if you find it please post the link here in the discussion... cheers

Speachless. Dont know what to say. I am afraid to take my guitar in the hand. I prefer listening and watching this video over and over again.

Justin King is unbelievable. I believe the video that Andrew is speaking of is located here... Try it out. It's pretty intense... at one point, he crosses what would be a regular guitarists strumming hand over the fret hand. Neat to watch.

Fredrik <mifofredrik AT> said on 2005-12-03 14:39:27 here he is with Phunkdified

Aleksandar <cooley.rusty AT> said on 2006-01-18 17:55:56
Hey guys . I realy dont know why are you discuss about King couz there are alot of guitarist that they are 10000 times beter than him . For example take Joe Satriani or if you like good arpeggios and good shreds than Michael Angelo Batio , Francesco Fareri , Rusty Cooley , Jason Backer & so on . Try to play real music and you will see that its much more harder than this :D

CanadianKid <no e-mail> said on 2006-01-22 06:14:45
Are you crazy last post? This guy is playing like no one else has ever tried to play. Joe Satriani is good, but this guy is playing in a completely different way than any guitarist ever has. All the other guitar gods are usually just really fast, and play scales well.

notalkjustlearn <Drop_Trou AT> said on 2006-02-02 19:14:45
he is an amazing guitar player, but instead of just googling, i want to learn some of that stuff. i have phunkdified pretty much under wraps, but that song is nothing compared to knock on wood. if there's anyone out there that has some idea of how to play it they should get tabbing and send it to me or something....a lot of guitarrists would hate to hear me say this, but learn them yourself and watch the bras and panties fly.

JAmmo <madeinmarz AT> said on 2006-02-09 05:14:12
Yes. Justin king is amazing. Hendrix is still my favorite but this guy is ridiculous can anyone post something about learning this style of guitar? thanks.

Shuggie <rush27331 AT> said on 2006-04-15 16:23:13
I have to laugh at the guy who commented that Joe S. plays betther than this guy.....they cannot be compared. Justin King is using an acoustic and doing things I have never seen before. Using an electric to get these effects can be easy...using an acoustic to get these effects...well that's a different beast. Justin King is pushing the envelope in a wonderful direction and those of us that play acoustic all the time should check him out!!!!!

Dante <blizzardmdv AT> said on 2006-04-28 02:58:16
Don't be stupid. Music is not about how technical you are. Its about expresion and if you want to compete , go and play a console game. Music its not something to compete. Great video, this guy has some cool songs , check his album Le Bleu is worth a shot. Cheers Dante

ASDF <ggraham96 AT> said on 2006-05-25 23:58:13
Aleksander - its really easy to go ahead and play stuff thats been around for years and has been developped for so long ie. joe satriani. sure the way they play their appregios and scales pretty damn quick, but that stuff is old and has been around forever. Justin King has written stuff that a very minor amount of people have heard, and that is more versatile than anything at least ive ever heard. The day i see joe satriani running through scales WHILE drumming on the base of the guitar, or playing another progression with the other hand, then i'll be impressed. speed isnt everything.

ASDF <ggraham96 AT> said on 2006-05-26 03:52:03
by the way...anyone who wants more music like this, check out Kaki King. Shes incredible.

Nyfædd <flamesofmetal AT> said on 2006-09-02 01:37:36
This guy's a noob, yeh he's pretty creative but so is every succesfull guitarist .......... Micheal Angelo I give speed+theory but he sucks at everything else, Satch I give style, Jason Becker is one of a kind but there is so much more out there the guitarist's from dragonforce alone would kill these artists in all aspects

James Leroy Vazquez <james_punky AT> said on 2006-10-15 02:38:34
wow the best player i've seen,periot

P Stevens <pstevens AT> said on 2006-12-23 01:54:21
Aleksandar!!! you are a huge fucking tool! You can suck my hairy balls!!! Cause Satriani is just like every other lead guitarist. He plays one string at a time at a semi-fast pace. You wanna see fast, watch the live version of Squaredance at the media section at I'd like to see Joe Satriani play rythm guitar on one neck and lead guitar on the other like Justin King does on a doubleneck. Go ahead and look at the guitar tablature for knock on wood, and you'll shit your pants. You obviously don't know shit about anything, so I really don't know why I'm still talking about how gay you are. Go fist yourself! Aleksandar

Hannah <ryderkicks AT> said on 2007-02-09 09:32:43
I believe someone mentioned michael angelo being amazing... and while that is true, I think that person meant Michael Romeo. if you youtube some of his stuff, you'll notice that he plays "metallassic" music... or classical theory put to good use on an electric. I've never seen hands move that, not even joe sat himself. And as for Justin King... he doesn't know it yet, but we're getting married. You're all invited, I'll make a big public hullabaloo about it. Absolutely genius techniques on his part, how on earth do you teach yourself something like that? And then expand on it and make it your own on top of it all??? If anyone has any tips on his style and how to even begin to try and learn it, please don't hesitate to tell me!

RRC <rafarc AT> said on 2007-02-15 07:41:29
woow, he's incredible. But I really do not agree with most of you above, always the same thing... "this is faster than that", "x is so much BETTER than y" etc. Like Dante said, music is not just technique, music is creativity, feeling, style, rythm, tempo... I already said, this guy is incredible, very cool stuff, but I do not need ultra fast arpegios, or scales, or two hand tappings to get impressed, just a nice riff or lick can be impressive, a beautiful chord played in the exact moment, this is impressive... music is not about one is the BETTER the other, no artist "kill" any other. As an example, check out Oscar Lopez, an chilean guitarist, he plays in the "old style", and besides that he is amazing, wonderful.

Oh come on guys Justin King is overrated... And I'm surprised you guys have just heard his songs.. which all sound the same by the way. If u played guitar for more than 3 months actually practicing a lot u can learn this song in like a couple hours.. Now if you want something Really worth listening to go on youtube and search Andy McKee.. He's got songs with great structure and its not just random tapping within the scale of the song.. so check it out! candyrats has some greatt artists

i agree with RRC very much. real good guitarist, or musicians in general, concentrate on the beauty and creativity of the music, not the speed. we can take michael angelo batio for example, he amazes me everytime, but there is nothing too creative about it, just learn how to play your scales really fast and your one like him already. and no comments on the joe, he is a master, but no one is better than anybody, we're just talking about different styles here. props for the king, he is one creative mother. p.s. listen to his new cd "fall/rise" cheers

Brandon <no e-mail> said on 2007-04-13 04:58:09
I find Drifting by andy mckee far easier to learn than, Phunkdified by Justin King was. The hardest tapping inevitably was Airtap by Erik Mongrain, definitely youtube it....quit bashing artists when you can't even measure up to their playing skills, it's one thing to play a song, but it's completely different to write one, it's a lot harder and all of these artists have made their own new style and genre
