One-Armed Guitarist Shreds Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" — Video

Here's another entry from the "Look what's making the rounds on Facebook at the moment!" file.

It's a (vertically shot, ugh) video of a one-armed guitarist named "Mark" playing a high-quality version of Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)," outdoors, on a street, somewhere.

The original poster of the video, a Facebook user named Tay Glass, commented, "After speaking with [Mark] for three minutes, he inspired me to achieve my goals no matter what the consequences."

Hopefully, it'll have the same effect on everyone who watches it.

And please, everyone, remember to film things horizontally! Vertical videos are challenged and weak by default. Seriously, we need to join forces to eliminate vertical videos ... . Anyway, enjoy!
