Cracker have premiered a new music video for "King of Bakersfield," and you can check it out below. The song is from the band's 2014 album, Berkeley to Bakersfield, which, by the way, was one of my top 15 albums of 2014.
As we've seen, especially here on GuitarWorld.com (and other far less interesting guitar-centric websites), guitars can be used for many, many odd things. For instance, guitarist Mario Torrado uses his Gibson Explorer to make annoying mosquito noises as his poor friend tries to sleep (Check out the video at the very bottom of this story).
Here young South Korean guitarist Sungha Jung digs into a fingerstyle rendition of Michael Jackson's “Billy Jean.” Jung started playing at age 9, and as you can see, he’s progressed to prodigy level. His YouTube covers collectively have hundreds of millions of views.
Another Friday, and another viral video is making the rounds in stringed-instrument land. This time, it's a fan-filmed clip of Taimane Gardner, a Hawaiian ukulele virtuoso, performing at the 2014 San Diego Ukulele Festival.
Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of "Feel Good Inc.," a new song (and free download) by Malibu, California-based rockers Irontom. As a bonus, we're also premiering the band's new music video for "The Minista." You can enjoy both below. Yes, "Feel Good Inc." is a Gorillaz cover, and that is indeed Charlie Sheen in the "Minista" video.
