John 5 Says "Betcha Can't Play This"

Last week, guitarist extraordinaire John 5 stopped by Guitar World HQ in New York City. 

During his visit, he sat down in our studio to crank out an absolute belter of a "Betcha Can't Play This." You can check it out above.

Can you play what he's playing? I certainly can't! If you can though, let us know on Facebook. 

John 5 and the Creatures are currently on the road in support of their upcoming album, Invasion. You can check out the band's full itinerary below. 

PS: He did this all in one take
