Here's their entire set from Sunday night:


Dudes Skateboard on an Electric Guitar

Here's a brand-new video by Braille Skateboarding, a bunch of guys who attempt to skateboard on a host of unexpected objects, very few of which—it seems—are skateboards.

Cracking the Code with Troy Grady: Yngwie Malmsteen's Rotational Picking Mechanic

The most fundamental challenge in fast picking is also the easiest to spot from halfway across the room: the motion mechanic.

To play notes with a pick, we need a way of moving it back and forth in the classic alternating down-up picking sequence.

Historically, this movement, or motion mechanic, has been the most visible and most commonly discussed component of picking technique. The sheer variety of motion mechanics used by elite players has been a source of fascination and bewilderment.

Dave Mustaine, Slash, Roy Clark and More Audition on 'The Drew Carey Show'

A few months ago, we posted an incredibly popular video of David Gilmour, Gary Moore, Lemmy, Mark Knopfler and more making hysterical guest appearances—all at the same time—on a classic 1987 episode of French and Saunders, a popular U.K. sketch comedy show that ended its run in 2007.

It looks like we might've just stumbled upon something akin to the U.S. version of this idea.

It was 1999; I had just received a partial scholarship to the Berklee College of Music in Boston and was considering the offer.
