This man needs to be famous!
Playing guitar us extremely difficult. I have a ton of respect for people that can pick it up naturally with little to no trouble learning the basics! That being said, I couldn’t imagine playing one with my feet. Well, this man not only proved it’s possible, but blew my mind with his amazing skill!
Mark Goffeny from San Diego, California was born with no arms. But that didn’t stop him from learning to play the guitar. Instead of giving up all hope, he decided to adapt and learn to play the axe in an alternative way: with his feet and toes! He is often seen performing on the streets and will serenade audiences with his amazing musicianship and voice. In this video, he is seen playing the Tom Petty hit “Last Dance With Mary Jane.” His guitar playing is on point, and his voice is pretty awesome as well!
Check out Mark’s performance down below, and show him some love! And if you’re ever wandering the streets in San Diego, you may run into him at some point!
