YouTube – Paco De Lucia Shreds – part of the “Shreds” series. Others include Steve Vai, Eric Clapton and more. Stevo found this yesterday and we had a good laugh about it. Haven’t laughed that hard in a while. If you have never seen a “Shreds” vid by this guy, he basically takes guitar-hero videos and overdubs (((he replaces the original soundtrack with his own))) his own guitarplaying, timed perfectly to the movements, and played for optimum comical effect. Because it is so funny, most guitar-heros allow the videos and don’t have them taken down.

    This is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a LONG time. I can’t remember the last time I laughed like that. I’m actually starting to laugh just thinking about it now. I must watch again!

    These are fantastic! Cheers to you and Steve for the link. The timing is spot-on, and I sprayed coffee when Satriani whistled into the mic.
