Guitarist who play with their feet

Tony Melendez is known as the guy with no arms who played for the pope back in 1989. Warning – this video gets a bit preachy at times, but it’s incredible to watch him play. I can’t imagine how long it took to master strumming the strings, let alone fretting the notes with his toes.

This video is of Mike Goffeney who also has no arms and plays with his feet. This video is from 2003, he has a band now “Big Toe”, and then were actually in that “America’s Next Greatest Band” competition a few months back (they didn’t win). There’s a couple vids of him on YouTube singing on the street. He not only strums the notes, but plays a bit of mock lead every now and then, sings, and slaps the guitar with his feet for some of the drum parts. Quite a talent, some guys can’t even play and sing the guitar normally – this guy does it with no arms!
