I find his technique and posture fascinating and felt comforted at his request for a re-take because the guitar scared him to death.

Seen this before, it’s a great clip showing something that helped make him so good - the size of his hands and length of his fingers, to be able to play thumb over on a 12 string is seriously hard even if you’ve got big hands!
Wish he had played acoustic more, it would have added even more to his performances!!!
My singing sucks so I’m learning Guitar and Ukulele, it’s fun 🌟

And he's holding the instrument up side down... Proud to be a lefty...  ;D
I'll get it in the end. Just don't give up, that's the key....
