STAR WARS 8-String Acoustic Medley: Felix Martin is this Guitar’s Father

Felix Martin has been around for quite a while now, and his unique brand of guitar playing is pretty much instantly recognizable. My first experience with Felix’s music was in 2014 when my band played a show with him in Austin, Texas. The other bands on the bill included The Ocean, Scale the Summit, and The Atlas Moth, to name just a few, but Felix stood out to me instantly. It’s always a very cool experience seeing something truly unique this late in the game for guitar music.


Star Wars has been done to death in the guitar community, so it’s nice to see that Felix has put together such a unique sounding piece that truly stands out. In this video we catch Felix slapping, tapping, and ripping away on his Kiesel 8 string acoustic. The sound of an acoustic guitar plugged in with no mic has always been somewhat of an issue for my ears but it really elevates the tune in this case. Felix’s playing transforms the guitar into just as much of a percussive instrument as a melodic one. Additionally, Lang Zhao’s fantastic drum performance suits this medley perfectly and gives it the extra gas needed to take this piece to the top.
