A master guitar shredder

Wait, wait... this is Willie Nelson! How can I say he's a guitar god? Surely only people who shred on electric guitars get to be guitar gods!

Well, fuck that shit. Watch this video again if you doubt Willie's guitar skills. Trigger (his guitar) ain't exactly a young pony, and is a nylon-strung classical guitar at that, but he's getting sounds out of that old steed that ain't your run-of-the-mill gitar pickin' by any means.

  1. He defines the word "classic."



  2. Pickin' (as opposed to strummin') is what separates the players from the wannabes. Willie is, indeed, a classic. And an original.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
