Beautiful. I dig it, though his tone couldn't be any further from a traditional bass sound. Sounds like a jangly banjo at times. But proof positive that the infamous raking technique is far from wrong. ;) The combination of that and his reverse strung playing help give him that sound.

Here's another guy that happens to play reverse strings as a lefty - Keith Horne.

Keith is incredible! I emailed him a year ago to get his CD. Really nice guy.
Their are other videos of him posted at youtube as well.
