    I don't think people get how insanely impressive this is. The fact that he remembers 80 guitar intros and can do them all flawlessly blows my mind.

    As a kid born in the 90’s I never realized how far back some of these familiar tunes went. Very happy both of my parents were into rock of all ages. Also it was very impressive to hear all of these intros back to back. Crazy to witness so much skill and technique.

    It’s not just remembering the notes and rhythm, but getting each and every tone so perfectly balanced… what a performance 🫡

    • Allen Newborn
      Allen Newborn Month ago +4

      Hmmm.. perfectly? He did good.. very recognizable, but he even knows he makes mistakes. Look in his face, BUT it is 80 songs with 80 different tones on 1 guitar. It's 100% NOT going to be perfect. For what it is though? Did great.

      Digitalfiendscom 26 days ago

      Great work! Two obvious ones for me that are missing: The Eagles’ Hotel California (but probably because you don’t want to get sued 😂) and Boston’s More Than A Feeling. Van Halen alone could have probably taken 10 slots by themselves but Ain’t Talking ‘bout Love was a good choice. Songs were so recognizable back then…with the 70s-90s being my favourite three decades for rock guitar.

      @Gruuvin1 Nirvana brought a whole new thing onto the map, it was the pure raw emotion that pushed away the sellout, celebrity status hair metal… Like them or not, they changed rock, gave more variety, and most importantly, it wasn’t some commercial bs

      The Bible is truth. Please read at least three books of the Bible, Genesis Mathew and one you chose yourself. As you do practice forgiveness, that’s what makes it click. Parents are easiest. They’ve loved you to some degree. It’s actually extremely important to forgive them specifically, that relationship has spiritual significance to God. Remember to break down before Jesus Christ and ask for forgiveness too. Please, it’s really important that you do these things as soon as possible. The Bible is truth;
      Jesus Christ is Lord

      Polyphia is the only band on the list formed in the last 20 years. We guitar 🎸 lovers are dinosaurs.

      @Devon Day well of course there’s a risk. And that’s why you don’t “read the top few comments” while watching. Like I said, it’s fair game to comment on any aspect of any video.

    the arrangement is unreal seamless - some of those intros sound really good next to each other.

      I wonder, I wonder... could he, perchance, have resorted to using some modern day technological hack to say... prep a list of all the songs he was to play, in their proper chronological order, so as to use said list as a reference guide?... then maybe, just maybe, placing alluded list in position off-camera, so as to then induce the resulting effect of wondrous bewilderment within his audience's psyche...
      oh, how I wonder... 🤔

      Dean Allison Good Point, Dean! You fuckin got me dude. However, I don't remember seeing a video on your page playing all of these intros note for note, or any guitar intro, or any content at all for that matter. Must've missed that. Have a good day, pal.

    I don't know how you remember that many, let alone play them! My favourite guitar intro of all time has got to be Steely Dan's 'Don't Take Me Alive', played by Larry Carlton. Genius!

    This is insanely impressive. 80 intros, different effects, different musical genres, seemingly from memory and all in one take without noticable mistakes. Not too many musicians around who could pull this off.

      Do it in 10 tunes chunks. It's WAY easier to do it like that. I'm SURE he had apprx 3 weeks to shed all that. Totally possible

    It’s stunning how you were able to play 80 intros with no list or more music, from memory, in chronological order, without any mistakes! How many weeks & takes did this take? Meanwhile I spent months during covid not mastering the ONE intro from G&R that you featured 😝

      @Erik Kraan I was talking about how versatile is a Strat, I never said "don't ever buy any other guitar", just that with a Strat you can play anything. Yes, you can play anything with any guitar, if you have 35 guitars, that's awesome, if you can have a guitar for every genre, amazing, my comment is not about the Strat being the only guitar the worlds need, it's just a "wow dude, how versatile a Strat is".

      @Alan Alvarez I think that it doesn't have to be a strat. Guess you could play all this on a tele as well, with a good sound. But it does mean you don't need to own a couple of guitars to play a lot of different styles.

    Great vid, variety and very well performed. I'd have had Gary Moore's Parisian Walkways instead of the one you played, personally, but that's just me. Really enjoyed the performance.

    Thoroughly disappointed that not only was Funk #49 not at #49, but wasn’t even on the list at all!
    On a serious note, damn impressive! I don’t think I could remember that many riffs at one given time, much less play them all perfectly in one take.

    Not only did you memorize 80 guitar intros and do it in one take, but you captured each songs guitar tone as best as you could as well. Absolutely incredible.

    • AirmanRobertson

      @Pyr0nEx I agree, there were a handful that I was like, "yeah, those are the notes, but it doesn't sound quite right because of the setup". Obviously, by doing it in one take certain sacrifices have to be made, and most of them sound very close to, if not exactly like, the original recordings.

      @Luke Prov I am impressed but I disagree with the tones being accurate as you basically described. He could’ve had his Les Paul or SG next to him and we would have a perfect video.

    • Luke Prov
      Luke Prov 8 months ago +1

      @Pyr0nEx with what he had, he did a damn good job. He could of easily just plugged in his strat and played each intro on a clean channel, but he went the extra mile and plugged in his pedal board and tried to capture each tone as close as he could by switching pedals/pickups. Not to mention he had to remember 80 songs worth of guitar tones. You may not be impressed, but I damn sure was.
