Stanley is impressive for sure, but the two guitar thing is just the same as he was doing on one guitar, just doing the same licks on the second guitar he was doing on 1.
Still an awesome guitarist! I would like to have seen what Merle Travis would have thought seeing Jordan! BTW, he has written a number of papers like this;

One thing though: He wouldn't be playing that way on an acoustic guitar since you would be hard pressed to hear him, it takes highly amplified pickups to do that kind of tapping, which also takes a specially made guitar with flat fretboard and very low strings, less than a millimeter off the frets which allows tapping to make good sounds.
I did hear a girl at a folk fest doing much the same thing on an acoustic but again, it had an acoustic pickup and was amplified up the kazoo.
