Always fun to watch and listen to.
People with this type of skilll make me ponder who was the 'inventor' of the style - Michael Hedges was my first introduction to 'heavy mental' (and two handed tapping on acoustic) music and he holds a special place in my heart.
It is refreshing to see the style continues and grows.

Keep in mind Stanley Jordan, and of course Emmett Chapman and the Chapman stick. That instrument is the ultimate in tapping (and a real challenge to master, but worth it).

He kept his left hand in the traditional alignment & didn't drum on the box, but I saw a vid of Chet Atkins doing the two-handed tap in the '50s. He probably learned it from someone older.

I've got no kick against modern jazz,
Unless they try to play it too darn fast
And lose the beauty of the melody
Until they sound just like a symphony

I had the chance to see John Pizzarelli live a few weeks ago on a lovely evening for an outdoor concert in Stamford CT. John played with melody, and speed (not too many notes). It was a performance Mr. Berry would probably have approved of.
