This guitarist has a very seemingly unique approach to playing the guitar.
His name is Tom Ward, and when he auditioned for Australia’s Got Talent he seemed to hold his guitar in an awkward way that may make it seem like he might not actually know how to play it.
But then, just a little bit into his audition, the judges looks and tones changed from skeptical to being awe inspired by Tom’s playing.
If the way he holds his guitar looks strange, it is actually called “classical position” and is the posture you sit in to play classical guitar. This, and Tom’s long nails are both classical guitar techniques.
