Wow, thats amazing probably is the 1st time It's been before, the amount of skill you need to pull that off is herroundous.

The sounds really really good, my brother said that it must be an electric acustik but I'm not convinced I just think he has skill ;P

Thats a better one of his style. It's called Airtap!

Also, I don't think he needs it to be electric, only to amplify the sound. His strings must be further than normal from the fret board, to be able to play harmonics by tapping the strings.
