Hannes Coetzee – Mund-Slide

Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

So kann man es natürlich auch machen – aber ob das nicht an den Zähnen scheppert? Schlecht für Herrn Zahnstein:

Hannes Coetzee’s is a soft-spoken 72-year old whose job is tapping the aloes that grow around his Karoo hometown of Herberstdale (South Africa) for their medicinal juice. Hannes composes his own songs and learnt to play the guitar on the side of the hill when the aloes were too dry to tap and to keep himself company on long lonely evenings in the mountains of the Kamiesbeg. The only known practitioner of the ‘optel and knyp’style he must rank as one of the most unusual slide guitarists in the world. If you shut your eyes you would think that there were two people accompanying each other on guitars. [via Haarbüschel]
