    Just posted this over in the CBOM subforum, but have to post it here as well - been following Darragh since he was about 10 years old - what a player!

    What a player, Jill.

    Really unusual right hand technique. Looks like he uses one of those triangle shaped Herdim picks. They come to a very sharp point. And he holds it by the corner instead of at the top. Obviously it works for him, but as I said it is unusual.

    What maker is that instrument he plays, by the way?
