Don Alder This past Saturday night (9/18), Vancouver, British Columbia–based acoustic guitarist Don Alder stepped onto the stage at the 2010 Guitar Player Superstar competition and wowed the audience, the judges, and his fellow contestants, with a solo performance of his song "The Rogue."

The fingerstyle virtuoso combines a percussive approach that is more Ani DiFranco than it is Andy McKee (guitar tab) with an impressive grasp of harmony, melody, and arrangement, to create a sound that is best described as a one-man band. But don't take our word for it, just check out the video below and judge for yourself!
