I know, I know.. this is the uke forum but I don't hang around with guitar guys anymore. I'm playing uke now :cool:

I never was interested in fan strokes when i played guitars but it is driving me nuts now with the Uke. So when I saw the Taylor guitar commercial, I just cracked up. I also was interested in whether or not the Ge Capital representative (Deb Barker) actually did the playing. Seemed really seamless and everything was fully visible.

Turns out it was movie magic ala Avatar and the body double was Marija Temo.

I still get a kick out of it.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joFFBdEEmgA

Bob Taylor is so deadpan, he probably did his part on the first take.

Yeah, that is a really cool commercial. I wasn't sure if she actually played or not, but the playing is amazing, and you can see the evolution of some uke strums from flamenco guitar techniques.
