Guitar player Ronnie Moipolai

Here's an awesome video of a unique guitar player. I love the way that he has his guitar setup, whether it's intentional or not, he has the 5th string removed, so that he can really wail on and emphasize the bass line.

"Ronnie Moipolai from Kopong village in the Kweneng district 50 km west of the capitol Gaborone. He is 29 years old and goes around the shebeens selling and playing his songs for 5Pula each (80dollarcents). He learned guitar from his now late father, has 3 brothers that also play guitar"

Many people do not know about Ronnie Moipolai. Although he just used a simple guitar, he can play it well. Thanks for writing it; I have known the figure of Ronnie Moipolai.

Ronnie Moipolai is a great man. By using the traditional guitar, he knows how to play the rhyme rightly and nicely. I am speechless while hearing his guitar’s voice. He is very talented, actually.
