See around 2:20 for an example, but he seems to do this alot.
Does he often do this? I found it very distracting. Just wondering.

I know this. Tony Enamel is so good he makes me put down my guitar in frustration and disgust. Many great players in many activities inspire others to aspire to be that good... then there are others that inspire us to say "what's the use?"
BTW, I like the "WTF did I just do to my head?" look.

I saw Andres Segovia in '63. We were told that the maestro required quiet while he played. Well right after he played about two notes a back door at the venue closed or clicked or made some kind of noise and Segovia stopped and gave a sneer that could have killed and we were all afraid that was it, he was going to walk off the stage. Fortuately we all demonstrated enough remorse that he granted us full show. Even the best have attributes we can make fun of.
