Samuel Orson Plays "Giraffe" and "Cookie Jar" — Video

Here are two new videos by a guitarist named Samuel Orson, whose new album/EP, Cascadia, was released earlier this month and is available now.

As you can see, Orson has a unique way of playing his Martin acoustic, and it definitely sounds a bit different. Orson places the guitar on his lap like a Dobro or lap steel, then frets and taps—adding a bass line and percussive elements along the way—from above.

Below, check out performance videos of "Giraffe," followed by "Cookie Jar," both of which can be found on Cascadia.
