George Kamikawa that is http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I often pass this guy when I'm ducking out for lunch or running some errands. Man can he kick up a ruckass! A Japanese busker doing blues on slide guitar and harmonica in an Australian city? Pretty unlikely, but it seems to work. He reckons he likes Australia better because there are no yakuza to demand 'site fees' every time he plays.

He even does a crazy version of Waltzing Matilda A cross-cultural road smash that gets faster and faster until you can just about see the smoke comming off his fingers.

Certainly makes a change from the tooting Chileans in their pyjamas. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Nice Find! Always love to hear good slide guitar. Used to have a good slide-guitar busker up hear in San Francisco. Always gave the guy some money.

Well, we've come a long way from Americans and Aussies trying to shoot down Georges. Now Yanks and Aussies are watching Georges play and giving them money! hehehe.
