The Manualist

Posted June 18, 2007

What's a manualist?  Someone who writes owner's manuals?  Nyet.  It's someone who uses their hands to make music.*

One of today's featured videos on YouTube is of a guy (the manualist} performing "The Entertainer" with his hands.  I could show this one on TV this morning, because "The Entertainer" is in the public domain.  He has some other videos, performing some other songs with his hands. 

He has wonderful hand pitch!  What do you think happens when you shake this guy's hand?  Check out his face -- he seems to take his art very seriously.
