A young man and a guitar...
I usually brag about crochet in this blog, but sometimes you see something that just strikes you and you have to share. This video is one of those things.

Jeong-Hyun Lim, a 23-year-old Korean who taught himself guitar over the course of the last six years. Now living in Seoul, he listens avidly to Bach and Vivaldi, and in 2000 he took a month of guitar lessons.

You can read the story about Jeong-Hyun Lim on the New York Times Website. You'll need to register, but heck, the New York Times is worth registering for.

In any case, listen to the video. His playing is amazing. He's not the first to do a rock guitar version of classical music, but he is mesmerising!
