if he has that much talent with one string just imagine what he could do with 2 or how about 6, now that would be unique :P
LOL I'm kidding, but seriously, someone buy the guy a pack of strings!!

Reminds me of how bagpipes always have that one constant whiney note playing. This is much more tolerable than bagpipes though.
