Playing an instrument is not easy.
The guitar is an incredible instrument that has been inspiring people for hundreds of years. This talented musician uses his acoustic guitar in a way that not many can, playing three huge hits by a ’90s band that many of us have rocked out to before.
This guy has some serious skills!
This talented guitarist plays three songs by The Prodigy on his acoustic guitar and quickly goes viral for his unique fingerstyle guitar picking.
Luca Stricagnoli is an extremely gifted guitarist from Italy who has made quite the name for himself on social media. His YouTube channel has close to 500,000 subscribers, where he posts complex performances that almost always take the internet by storm. One reason he’s such a revered guitarist is for his unique style of play.
Fingerstyle guitar playing is just one of the many amazing styles of play, and it entails plucking the strings directly with your fingertips, fingernails or with a pick.
In this video, Stricagnoli goes off on his acoustic guitar while playing some epic songs.
Stricagnoli starts by playing “Invaders Must Die” by The Prodigy while walking through a row of shipping containers.
Not only is his playing absolutely brilliant, but the whole video idea is also super amazing. He walks through rows and rows of massive metal shipping containers while never missing a beat. As the video goes on, Stricagnoli switches to another popular song by the group.
It’s like the shipping containers never end, and he continues walking through them while he uses fingerstyle picking to play an incredible rendition of “Omen.”
After completely nailing “Omen,” Stricagnoli moves on to the final song by the Grammy-nominated electronic group. When it comes time, Stricagnoli stops to play xylophone while still playing the song on his guitar.
Stricagnoli slides his hands up and down the neck of his acoustic guitar, using his finger to rapidly pick the notes in a mind-boggling display of musical genius.
His website describes his guitar style best, saying:
“Using up to five guitars in the same piece, modified capos, and self-conceived stratagems, Luca continually leaves his audiences in awe and wondering what’s next for the up-and-coming guitarist. In addition to his musical abilities, Luca brings an enthusiastic energy to the stage that attracts concert requests from every corner of the world.”
That’s when Stricagnoli begins to play “Voodoo People” in amazing fashion.
Holding both hands on the neck of his guitar and simultaneously plucking with each one, he proceeds to perfectly mimic “Voodoo People.” Not only does he vigorously strum the notes, but he also uses his palm to make a beat by drumming it on the body of his instrument.
Everything about this performance is phenomenal, and Stricagnoli makes it look easy.
With performances like this one, Luca Stricagnoli has become a social media sensation for taking well-known songs and putting his own twist on them.
People on the internet can’t get enough of the talented guitarist, and this performance quickly went viral after it was posted in 2018.
Most of his videos spread like wildfire, which is exactly why his YouTube page has over 46.9 million views.
Stricagnoli’s mashup cover of The Prodigy has been viewed over eight million times, with 236,000 people who liked it.
It’s easy to see why so many people were in awe of this cover performance!
Thousands of people left comments for the master guitarist praising him for his insane guitar style. Luca Stricagnoli is in a league of his own when it comes to fingerstyle picking. Don’t forget to check out his YouTube channel for more outstanding content!
