This busker has found a novel way of drawing a crowd. Not only is he good singer and guitarist, he's good at them while standing on his head! (Video Link) -via Yababoon
Dig this fast-paced, Farfisa-led, kinda sad, garage track; it's interesting to hear the guitarist using feedback efficiently for fills, 'cause guitar feedback in 1967 was pretty uncommon to hear on any record that hoped to make the radio. Hailing from Wisconsin, the Wilde Heard were originally called the Heard. Show More Summary

Justice Scalia has the right to bear an electric guitar -- or at least a Guitar Hero prop -- and diss his fellow justices in this number.
If you were to ask me what some of the greatest video games of all time were, I’d definitely put Final Fantasy VII near the top of that list. I can’t even begin to tell you how many hours I sunk into that game. All I know is that it hit me in ways that […]

The subtitle for the new Jonathan Fox Band record, 20 Something Runaway, could easily be “A Young Man And His Guitar”. Although he’s recorded solo efforts before and made a choice to put more emphasis on the band this time, the songs are really about Fox and his guitar. Fortunately Fox got a lot of […]
She & Him will release their Classics covers album in a few weeks, and they’ve just shared a video for their take on Dusty Springfield’s “Stay Awhile.” M. Ward does a pretty impressive job pantomiming guitar playing, and Zooey Deschanel dances around with a ghost and gets carried off into the clouds. The whole video [...]

For years, Ben Chasny has been recording way-out instrumental guitar pieces as Six Organs Of Admittance. And for his new album Hexadic, Chasny invented a whole new system of musical composition, which he’s calling the Hexadic System. According to Chasny, he based “the tonal fields, chord changes, scales, and lyrics” of the album around this [...]
Although Jamstik looks small and unassuming compared to a traditional acoustic or even electric guitar, as a purely digital instrument it can eschew the trappings required to generate sound, in much the same way that electric pianos differ from traditional pianos. Show More Summary
For those of us who are retrospectively inclined music-wise, last Friday night at the Beacon Theatre was a dream come true. Ray LaMontagne put on a show akin to those we might imagine were performed back in 1971 when guitars reigned supreme, or perhaps back in 1968 when light shows were still a thing. Show More Summary
