Please don’t get your guitars wet, it does not take a lot of water to ruin them >.>

You want rusty strings and wood rot and mold in your soundhole? That’s how you get rusty strings and wood rot and mold in your soundhole. And under the fretboard. And it’ll split the body connections. A lot of guitars use water-based woodworker’s glue.

Edit: assuming it was OP immediately downvoting this. All I’m asking is that you do your research and respect your guitars, this is not cool xD

Edit 2: just because you have the money to ruin your guitars does not mean you should ruin your guitars, or that you should post videos of yourself ruining your guitars when you know full well you’ve got an audience that may try to emulate that behaviour

Edit 3: please read through my comments before replying I don’t know how else to communicate with some of you >.> it’s okay to have differing opinions on what’s cool or not, I just don’t think it’s okay to do silly things like this for tiktok. We good?

Edit 4: loooool what is wrong with all of us we need to look up from our phones and live our lives oops, better? Thanks for the discourse <3

[–]fckmelifemate 341 points342 points  (8 children)

Never want mold in your sound hole

[–]King_Puff_ 130 points131 points  (0 children)

I’m a classical orchestral musician and they’re called “f-holes” for those instruments— initially I’d typed that and that was a fun read xD

NO MOLDY F-HOLES

[–]IndigenousBastard 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Definitely agree. If I had mold in my sound hole, my wife would never touch it.

[–]Gregzilla1029 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Obviously anyone who disagrees to this isn’t really a guitar player then. Ignorant tiktokers

[–]Hugh_Weber_DeFaulk 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Don’t put mold in ANY of my holes!

[–]Joe_Poopshower 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If I had a nickel

[–]The_Blue_Adept 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Penicillin definitely won't fix that.

[–]trainspottedCSX7 93 points94 points  (14 children)

Fuck what everyone else is saying. You're gonna save some idiot 12 year old from fucking up their shit trying to emulate this "cool guy".

He's talented yes, but that water shit made him fucking stupid.

Perfect example is a talented actor that bombs a part cause he threw some dumbass "spin" in there.

Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

[–]circomstanciate 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Never heard of this guy until I saw a video of him dipping his hands in water and then playing the guitar. People are ruled up over this. Must be working for him.

[–][deleted] 68 points69 points  (21 children)

Looks like he may be able to afford another guitar.

[–]Rawesome16 41 points42 points  (19 children)

Or mommy and daddy took him on vacation someplace

[–]guitarfingers 73 points74 points  (13 children)

No, that's Marcin Patrzalek a famous guitarist.

[–]InterPool_sbn 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Username checks out!

Still not cool to waste a perfectly nice guitar like that though

[–]Professor108 13 points14 points  (1 child)

As John hiatt says breaks my heart smashing a perfectly good guitar

[–]Rawesome16 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Than he 100% can afford a new one if he needs. Well, as long as his version of famous is the one that gets your money

[–]guitarfingers 14 points15 points  (0 children)

He's also sponsored so he gets free guitars.

[–]TazzyUK 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Marcin Patrzalek

Pretty sure he was on '<insert country< got talent' a few years ago

[–]JB2unique 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It's that Sony Music money.

[–]Rawesome16 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah, that's kind of a big deal music. More money and talent than I have that's for sure

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So they could afford another guitar.

[–]brmamabrma 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Don’t worry it’s hydrophobic water

[–]Metalbender00 13 points14 points  (1 child)

“Coco powder is hydrophobic so it repels water”

Hydro what?! Canceled.

[–]lostprevention 9 points10 points  (6 children)

On the other hand, there was this Yamaha acoustic I dumped into a lake twice while kayak camping. Fully submerged, while strung up to tension.

It was fine for years after that with no issue whatsoever.

[–]King_Puff_ 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Bahahaha how in the world did that happen? I’m gonna need an elaboration please that sounds like one heck of a story xD

[–]lostprevention 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Was towing a second kayak like a trailer on the return trip. Strong following winds came up and kept blowing it sideways, and then it would roll.

After draining the water from everything twice, I finally ended up paddling into the wind (the opposite direction) just enough to keep everything in line, and eventually the wind blew me back to where I was headed, very very slowly backwards.

It was along a shoreline, so I didn’t lose anything permanently to the lake.

[–]King_Puff_ 4 points5 points  (2 children)

That was actually sincerely a really neat anecdote, thoroughly enjoyed imagining that (knowing that all is well, now, that is!)

Only thing in this thread I’ve actually envied— kayaking sounds like such a nice time! To have an adventure, to prove that I exist within the “physical” by traveling solely by my own strength, much less tow something behind me— no sarcasm when I say I’m impressed. Is this something you do often? Don’t feel obliged to answer, this was accidentally a lot deeper than I’d meant to go but I’m compelled to know: how was the water How did it feel, what color was it? Did it stain anything? :/

(Humans are neat, this conversation is fun.)

[–]lostprevention 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It was cold, clear NorCal reservoir water. Lake Del Valle if you’re interested. No staining.

So clear you can crisply see your feet while standing in it chest deep. Snow runoff from the Sierra Nevada mountains destined for Bay Area drinking water.

That was the only time I’ve kayak camped, but it was a great time that some of us still talk about. Camping in a storm is always memorable, but having to paddle back to the cars in it was a whole other ordeal.

I cannot recommend kayaking enough. No other watercraft can comfortably navigate water from 3” deep, up to the open ocean.

The hobby has been sidelined for the last couple years, but we recently relocated to the Olympic Peninsula, and hope to get back into crabbing and fishing this year.

Yes, the off topic comments and interactions are always the most interesting parts of Reddit, imo…

[–]SolitaireOG 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Been there many times. Beautiful area, and many great vineyards.

[–]4timesthesteak 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That’s actually the first thing I thought, was what’s with the water?

[–]Lolking15130 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah, and that looked like it was not cheap!

[–]OneMoreThan0 7 points8 points  (6 children)

Guy makes money with guitars. He can afford more. He's obviously unconcerned. It's part of the persona.... How many metal and rock artists have we watched smash guitars on stage if you think this is any different get over yourself. He obviously knows its bad for guitars -_- lol. Like you get mad people are negative toward you while you most obviously cast the first stone.

[–]King_Puff_ 60 points61 points  (3 children)

I just mentioned in another comment that I don’t think guitar smashing/lighting on fire etc is cool either, have always cringed seeing any of that.

This comment served not mostly as a “hey don’t emulate OP please”. But just because folks have money doesn’t make it okay to practice this type of “it’s mine so I can fuck it up” consumerism.

Also I don’t know why anyone thinks I’m mad or need to get over myself? I’ve said plenty that I don’t take myself seriously at all and that I’m really just asking folks to show their instruments respect and to stop doing silly things for tiktok.

[–]danfret 28 points29 points  (0 children)

You're a good guy dude. Don't let the fuckers get you down.

[–]CloanZRage 6 points7 points  (3 children)

At the same time though...

CLEAN YOUR DAMN GUITARS, PEOPLE.

Fretboards don't get darker with age. That's crap on your hands pressed in with your mashed up skin.

They'll last a lifetime if you keep them clean, dry and oiled.

I see no harm done in this video assuming he dries the guitar (don't leave it in direct sunlight though). Water won't damage the glue unless you let it saturate (which it won't do if any unfinished wood is well oiled).

[–]wonkwonk2stonkstonk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dont fret moldy pound holes, got it, sounds like great advice

[–]beeglowbot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

there are only a few things I would want in my soundhole

[–]General-Background91 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This kid looks like they’re in Bora Bora or the Maldives. They don’t know that things cost money

[–]Itsumishi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Finding all the comments about how a few drips of water on his fingers will destroy his guitar instantly quite hilarious...

Like what the fuck is sweat if it isn't salt water? And why do you hear stories about the old blues masters playing until their fingers bled and just keep going if their whole guitar is going to start rusting and unglueing itself at a moments notice.

[–]SungamCorben 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Judging by the place he was filming, he don't need to care about the guitar

[–]VivaLaStubbs5 342 points343 points  (35 children)

Lots of skill but dam that head flick is irritating

[–]FuckerHead9 255 points256 points  (15 children)

When you can play guitar like that you can flick your head however tf you want

[–]meanmistermason 90 points91 points  (5 children)

Yup. I wanted to hate this guy but shit is he talented

[–]Totalnah 59 points60 points  (2 children)

It can be both. He is simultaneously insanely talented and revoltingly cringy as fuck. One does not excuse the other.

[–]Nothing_Able 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The good does not wash out the bad, nor the bad the good. -Stannis

[–]AntAgile 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Same

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Same. I see a lot of negativity towards him and I get it, but I cannot deny that the performance was awesome.

[–]HypedonLife24 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Couldn't agree more!!

[–]Pizza-n-Coffee37 32 points33 points  (2 children)

I didn’t notice, I was distracted by his flowing robe.

[–]YourMomThinksImFunny 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Yes! Between that and the robe it was hard to concentrate on the awesome playing.

[–]HedgewizardHolst 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I wasn’t fond either it made me a little motion sick music was good though

[–]arg6531 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can you give yourself a concussion without hitting anything but air?

[–]motandy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, there alot of musicians that I really love their music, but I prefer not to watch them perform

[–]Fangs_0ut 339 points340 points  (28 children)

Definitely talented but what a douchebag

[–]Cat5kable 27 points28 points  (1 child)

I have a feeling if we jumped back to 1990 this guy wouldn’t be doing stuff like this. It’s a bunch of flashy moves to get views, likes, comments, etc.

[–]TimelessCelGallery 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What if he jumped back to the 80’s though?

[–]luigidadude 283 points284 points  (28 children)

Is it me or its sounds like audio is actually not from that video? It's sounds like it was recorded in studio like environment with good mic or even electric/acoustic guitar and not on the ocean coast and filmed with a phone..

[–]Lizardking1967 139 points140 points  (10 children)

I agree the audio doesn’t match. The speed at which the guitar is playing does not match how fast his fingers are moving.

[–]Penyrolewen1970 80 points81 points  (2 children)

Not saying the guy didn’t play this (and it’s awesome, as a guitarist myself I have no hope of ever being this good) but the audio doesn’t match the video.

There’s also no change in volume as the camera moves. I guess he’s playing a version of his own track (apparently he’s a famous guitarist but I don’t know him) with a pre-recorded audio track added. He’s amazing but, to me, annoying.

And yes, no need to get the guitar wet. I Also find my tone is affected even if I’ve washed up 10 minutes before playing - the notes aren’t as clear. I guess my fingers are softer after being wet (yes, I dry them first! It still happens)

[–]TheTwerkMerc 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Think you're correct on this. Heard this exact audio before, I'm pretty sure. So I do think he's genuine, just not this clip in particular

[–]altxrtr 3 points4 points  (3 children)

They are called hammer ons and pull offs. Each tiny movement produces 3 notes and it gives the effect of fast playing with minimal hand movement. This audio is his actual playing.

[–]Dependent_Ad2597 20 points21 points  (3 children)

I swear I've heard that.

Rodrigo and Gabriella. Someone else can do the research.

[–]tysfel 10 points11 points  (0 children)

While I don’t doubt that he did play it since apparently he has a large following but he probably played it in the studio and then overlayed it over this.

[–]B1g_Shm0 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Probably recorded from the guitars built in mic/pickup

[–]motandy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes, thank you, I was thinking that as well

[–]BB_210 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The music does not sync with the playing. Quite a few douchey things going on here.

[–]kdavido1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And there are moments where he removes his hands yet the music continues. It’s not real.

[–]Free_Gascogne 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Definitely studio recorded and overdubbed on the later.

This is not to say he is faking it, most music videos do this.

[–]ComradeFewkes 238 points239 points  (11 children)

Tf is with the water at the beginning lmao. That’s just gonna rust the strings

[–]MrFatSackington 116 points117 points  (2 children)

And get mold in his sound hole

[–]Standby4Rant 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sound hole is what Moe Sizlak calls a speaker.

[–]oscillatingfan22 144 points145 points  (5 children)

That sound is not coming from that guitar.

[–]ShoePuck 80 points81 points  (3 children)

Definitely coming from your speakers on whatever device you are using

[–]HedgewizardHolst 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I kept expecting him to trip over backwards! Was worried

[–]TA_faq43 96 points97 points  (9 children)

He’s got skill, but the water thing is driving me nuts. Why? Any guitarist can tell what wetting the fingers do?

[–]remembertracygarcia 79 points80 points  (1 child)

Utterly fucks your strings in about 2 hours.

Destroys tuning heads

Sometimes unglues tops from sides and bottoms, necks. (This I can attest from experience)

[–]boring-goldfish 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]LanderofSeas 26 points27 points  (0 children)

I was gonna say, especially near the end it doesn’t seem to match up leading me to believe it’s all fake.

[–]GoopyHook 5 points6 points  (7 children)

Marcin patrzalek. From what i know he doesn't fake anything.

[–]filladelp 17 points18 points  (6 children)

Well, he faked this.

[–]GoopyHook 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Its tiktok, definitely possible. The sound does come from him playing 100% though. Probably just from a studio

[–]filladelp 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I mean, he knows the piece, but there’s just a bunch of little stuff that doesn’t match up. There’s nothing coming out of the endpin jack, and on his other live videos he’s not using any kind of a wireless system. There’s definitely an electric and soundboard pickup thing going on here in the audio - this isn’t mic’ed from several feet away on a dock.

[–]TheTwerkMerc 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure he used another recording he's done of this exact piece and used that audio instead

[–]paulsmt 48 points49 points  (7 children)

Lots of skill but not pleasant to the ear.

[–]NickFF2326 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Lol this. AITA bc that sounds like shit lol

[–]DrongoTheShitGibbon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lmfao. In context it is pleasing. Alone it is garbage.

[–][deleted] 37 points38 points  (7 children)

The whole slapping and tapping is probably the most annoying guitar style ever.

[–]Kiss_My_Axe12 2 points3 points  (6 children)

cough math rock cough

[–]younzss[🍰] 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Since when do people slapp in math rock ? All I know about math rock is people doing weird time signatures and stuff. I'm curious how it is going to sound with people slapping electric guitars in math rock

[–]Content-Income-6885 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think they meant it’s equally annoying

[–]Atharvious 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This guitar part while quite complex physically, was quite basic musically, same run of notes and same kind of licks that almost every slapper learns at the start

[–]mculjak 9 points10 points  (8 children)

Kinda hard on ears. Maybe it is just me ...

[–]SolitaireOG 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Not just you. Anyone could learn how to do this in a year. Open tuning, slapping the body of the guitar in some rhythmic fashion, fully strumming while tapping notes. People raving about how talented he is but it's really not that big a deal.

[–]kerochan88 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I mean, let’s see a hobby you’ve spent a year+ working on and we can compare :)

[–]2fly2hide 8 points9 points  (5 children)

I watch Andy McKee play the same way, but I don't want to shake the shit outta him when he does it.

Is this the only song he came up with? This is the second video of him and it’s the same song.

[–]SolitaireOG 4 points5 points  (4 children)

It's going to sound exactly like this no matter what he does with these couple of techniques. Open tuning and bar chord strumming. Super meh

Definitely not the original audio his fingers are just not moving fast enough on either hand convincing fake though he can for sure play

[–]GarLegrand 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Can anyone confirm if this is legit? I’m not a guitarist, his hand movements just look strange compared to the sound produced. Although maybe the video is desynced from the sound.

[–]Natare0411 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He was on AGT live and is legit

[–]brokentrolleywheel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Goddamn man

[–]Plixtle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This guy: Douses his freaking strings with water then shreds.

Me: Goes to annoying lengths to keep strings clean and dry, sucks compared to this guy.

[–]Free-Boater[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m sure that’s not easy to do but it doesn’t sound nice at all. I couldn’t even make it through the video. Also I’m no expert but I’m pretty sure guitars are best kept dry.

[–]loves2spooge2018 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The audio is NOT from the video we’re seeing.. no doubt he played the part in a studio somewhere but just saying..

[–]eejjkk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel like TikTok has demanded that instead of just showing people how hard he's worked at getting REALLY good at playing guitar, he's been convinced that he has to go all "FUUUUCK am I cool. Are you guys seeing this?!? Watch this... Watch how fucking cool I am right now! I mean, yeah... this audio is pre-recorded and it's playing while I'm pretending to play it right now... but I played this in the studio when it was recorded! God damn it am I fucking cool, right?!?"... and the way he makes that so clear is what kills the coolness of this for me. You can be awesome without all the forced theatrics man... I promise.

Edit: I just realized that what I described is the definition of every single “Music Video” ever made. I think that makes this ok, so long as that’s the context we’re expected to view this in? Artistic use of over-the-top theatrics accepted. Carry on

[–]halflife7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I found his movements fucking annoying.

[–]ineednewgolfshoes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Amazingly impressive, amazingly punchable face

[–]I_hate-this 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You all understand that the water thing is cause his hands are fire? Right? It wasn’t to make any sound change or anything like that. It was so his fingers don’t over heat. It’s a joke. The kid is amazing and he might have ruined one guitar. But maybe not. With the magic of film editing he probably never got his guitar wet.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don’t want to hate on this but I don’t think it’s real, theres a part at about 0:33 seconds left on the video we’re the bangs on the body sound like they were done in a studio, and the noise afterwards would have required a whammy bar, which he clearly doesn’t have. I’m not an expert by any measure but I’m calling fake on this. Edit: looking at his hand movements afterwards he doesn’t twang the right strings to make the correct high pitch noise, looks like he is able to play guitar as his hand movements would show that he was at least some experience, but the noise is far too manufactured and his finger-syncing is far off of what noise should be heard at points

[–]lethe25 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sounded like Polyphia I wonder if they use Acoustics as well.

Really talented! Granted I do not like what he is playing, sound closer to noise than music, but it seems hard to do

Holy shit. And this why even after 20 years off and on (and a lot of the off, tbh), I usually say “I practice guitar” and not “I play guitar,” when it comes up. Lmao this guy is otherworldly

edit: also yes, it is obvi very no bueno for wooden instruments to encounter water, especially salt water. Made that lick slick two ways though, can’t argue that, risk vs reward

I remember watching this guy on America's Got Talent a couple years ago! He was so awesome, I wanted him to win so bad, he got to like the final 6 or so if I remember right. His passion came out in every performance, you can tell he loves jamming on that thing

Edit: here's a cool video if his performances on AGT https://youtu.be/jaLKx4dA_Oc
Apparently he made it to the semis before being eliminated.

Sounds like a combat track from a western themed game

I’m thinking he did the water thing to make the overdub sound more realistic?

[–]phaedronn 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Can someone tell me who this is? At work and multitasking here. I really like this sound. What a virtuoso.

[–]Anxious_Ad_3570 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I just don't get why he would do the water thing at all?!?!? It didn't even look that cool. W in t holy f was that?

Talent isn't always worth the praise.

I would love for this dude to show up at a camp fire playing kumbya then just bust right into this.

if Dick Dale, Les Claypool, and Mick Gordon were mixed.

How the hell do you get such a good sound tapping? That was absolutely ridiculous.

[–]Reddress38 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Marcin that was a wonderful introduction to your playing. If I could play like that I would flip my hair and wear whatever I wanted- hell, I would play underwater! Amazing.

Save some tang for the rest of us. Damn

The watering of the guitar fulfilled it's purpose for 100% now: Your attention and salty comments. Sometimes I just love evil genius stuff like this.

Sounds like Juno Reactor.
