This is awesome. I’ve got to get one of these. As soon as I get my Gretsch.

Guns N’ Roses: Sweet Child O’ Mine

Woke up with this song playing in my head and a smile on my face. Good morning!

She’s got a smile it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I’d stare too long
I’d probably break down and cry

Hard to believe that the riff for this song was something Slash used to play for practice.

One of the best rock guitar solos.

Jack White can do no wrong.

Jack White - I Fought Piranhas

This is a deleted scene from “It Might Get Loud”, a film which you must see if you are a fan of good guitar playing.

It Might Get Loud - Jimmy Page, The Edge, Jack White

I am SO looking forward to seeing this.

I just wish Jimmy Page didn’t sound like Nigel Tufnel from Spinal Tap.

Rocksmith - I’ll have to try this out. Rock Band and Guitar Hero are lame.

Scary Dave Navarro is scary.

I thought this couldn’t get any better, then the polar bears with the electric guitars showed up.

Because it’s almost WEEKEND TIME here is some insane

Vintage Soviet Pop Weirdness from the late 60’s  

wait for the polar bears!

Don’t Tell Me You Love Me by Night Ranger

This video looks about like one of the terrible 16mm student films I did at film school. And the keyboard player must have owned the band van or something since I’m not sure why else he is there.

The dual guitar solos at around 2:05 makes it worth watching. Guitarists really were fond of hammer-ons in the 80s.
