He obviously puts his heart into it because he loves it! I don't hear anything of genius quality in that clip. He's very very fast and very good. He also has a pretty weird guitar but he should invest in a tuner in my opinion. There's a couple of points where he hangs on a single note before carrying on when he has to use a pretty heavy wide vibrato to disguise the fact that the thing has gone out of tune.

I like the clip and there's definitely stuff in there that I'd like to be able to use in my playing but it's not really my thing. A slight case of "Too many notes Mozart"!!
