I'm not sure if anyone has noticed, but on Fridays we usually share what we call "WTF videos" — clips of 8-year-old kids covering Guthrie Govan tunes, 14-year-olds looking totally bored as they rip through "Eruption" and complex Vivaldi tributes — and famous guitar players who dress up as horses.
In the very cool video below, guitarist Alex Chadwick at Chicago Music Exchange plays 100 well-known guitar riffs — in one take — providing a chronological history of rock and roll. And while some of you might've seen this clip before (It was posted in June 2012 and has been viewed almost 7 million times), you might enjoy a recent update to the video — TABS for everything Chadwick plays.
Below, check out an excerpt from an upcoming animated skit show called 6 Pack. The clip — which was written by Mark Shields and Jim Sharkey and animated by Mark Shields (a Top Off production) — shows a young Eddie Van Halen having a conversation with his girlfriend.
Robert Brenne, a 25-year-old Pennsylvania man, has found a new career: turning ordinary objects into guitar amps. There's his Ghostbusters lunch box, a rotary telephone, cigar boxes (of course) and a Pac-Man thermos — just to name a few.
