    Like Joaos previous Sunday Special threads- I thought I’d start one for each week here we should post one LIVE recorded audio/video guitar song that inspires you.  It would be nice if the lurkers, new forum participants… and instructors might post something too, (hint hint- Doug and Sarah)… guidelines:

    Take 5 minutes of your day to scan your memory banks, then go to youtube and find (1) video only, pro or amateur shot LIVE  performance, great inspiring guitar solo.  Here is mine, could not find the one he did from his 2011 performance of “while my guitar gently weeps” cover from his FCA 35 Live, but this one from a popular festival in Chile.

    Sorry I couldn’t find a live version but I will never forgot the first time hearing these guys live and seeing the reaction of the crowd and thinking to myself I going to buy a guitar, chicks will dig me and life will be good.

    I think the lead guitarist name was Christian Hanthorn but I’m pretty sure they changed their names a few times so not sure what happened to them but good memories

    Heres a live video that I watched like 50 times just the first 30 seconds, a few weeks ago. [Hah- NO, i didnt click it cuz of the half nekkid front woman 😛 ] What I saw was the guitarist- that things sometimes hit the fan even for pro’s.

    the two measure intro to the song, some arpeggio, the lead guitarist plays then turns around at his tech and motions behind him, “WHAT THE F—!!” This was a TV performance so probably they wanted it to be 100%.

    watch at 00:15


    The Pretty Reckless – T In The Park Festival 2011 (Full TV Special)

    Not sure but I think there were a couple missing notes from the guitar was cutting out? Or wrong effect on the guitar? Or no sound from monitor? Who knows. Doesnt seem like a big deal watching it from audience perspective. But from the guitarist’s perspective, somethign was very not right. Notice the camera quickly cut away..

      Taylor Momsen is cool, I really like this band’s stuff.  They are my favorite “New” band.

    This is the reason I picked up the guitar in 1980:

    That brings back memories.  Good ones too.  Gosh and a time warp, I am sitting here thining about those times.  I think I have mentioned this somewhere here before, but when I was in High School, I remember seeing the first time Kiss in 1975.  Kiss Alive- was my favorite Album then.  It was a huge exciting event for me too, I mean all the show aspects of it and being so loud, I was blown away by the show and then proceeded to buy their albums.  That’s all could ever think about was Rock and Kiss, and all the other 70’s bands.  Super inspiring time for me.  I picked up Bass in the same year as seeing them thanks to a good friend who found me a used Red Fender MusicMaster bass and had contact with a keyboard player junkie who was selling his white metal flake covered naugahyde tuck and roll, Kustom  15″ Bass/Keyboard Amp.  Total investment was like $400. a huge sum when I was making $1.70 an hour, washing dishes. But one thing I recall from that year and the next that Ace never sang or said anything at all.  Reading Circus magazines, Ace remained silent, no interviews just Paul and Gene.  He remained mysterious sort of, and Lead Guitar in my mind or playing guitar in general I felt was elusive and way too complicated… Glad to see you who started Guitar then and remain playing until now!  And.. being able to have your kids interested in it all too.

    It was only recently was discovering Ace did say somthing… haha.  on youtube that interview he did when he was drunk that was funny, and this video is actually the first time I have watched him sing.  I lost interest in them after their commercialization period when Bob Ezrin did Destroyer, unlike so many who became fan’s at that point.  Punk hit then, saw the Pistols in 77′ and I was into that genre.

    I missed posting this on Friday so I’m gonna post it late.. couldnt find the video.. that’s rock n roll!

    so I used to think “man, bands should just shut up and play their songs, too much chatting by the frontman in between songs, let the songs stand on their own”

    long way back, of course I never saw gnr live, but I saw this clip on mtv and it completely changed my mind about what should happen before a song. I’m talking about the intro to the song not the song itself. it’s a story… what the frontman should take as his responsibility for every song.. (yet very few frontmen do or do well)

    “you know where you are?!…” very powerful song introduction. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHe1XPTioIk Guns N’ Roses – Welcome To The Jungle Live Live Ritz 1988

    Axl has another crazy even more powerful rated-r story intro for this song about holding a switchblade to some guy’s throat that he hitchhiked with, and saying “do you know where you are??”.. found it with title Guns N’ Roses 7-2-91 Welcome to the Jungle St,Louis

    In general it seems Axl had really really great intro’s to songs a lot of the time.

    it’s already Friday in Japan so I’m posting it!


    Marty Friedman – Tornado of Souls , Live 2017 at Whisky a go go, West Hollywood

    Undisputed one of the best guitar solos of all time! So amazing I got to see this show. Highly recommended to find fave guitarists and go stalk their social media channels until their nearby tour show comes on the calendar.. (Dont get me started on talking about his bassist aaaaaaahhhhhhh unbelievable, video does not do her stage presence proper justice; I ran into another metalhead later in the week who was at this show too and he agreed, marty was phenomenal “but his bassist omg she stole the show”..)

      Big Marty Friedman fan. Interesting to see that he’s finally caved and written some music for Megadeth fans again, lol.

    Van Halen – Summer Nights ( Live Without a Net )

    speaks for itself.. in retrospect no question this is one small part of why I’m so into headless guitars.
    EVH so cool here.. so cool that a hot summer night itself becomes cool..

    Unfortunately I didnt get to see this actually live :-/

    Also from VH in New Haven ’86. Best of Both Worlds. Not even so much the “duel” at the beginning, but how huge the chords sound when the main song kicks in:

      VH was truly phenomenal during that time period – but – I cant suspend my disbelief during several clips of the live concert video. For example, Hagar sprinting one side of the stage to the other, with headset mic on, and the vocals are perfect the entire time, not even a missed “yowsa”. Hagar is one of the best rock vocalists for sure, but even so.. we know what the leaked audio of some of today’s dancing-singing pop stars sounds like, it’s out-of-breath attempts to sing while doing aerobic exercise. Or, Anthony gets pulled into a seating position by Hagar and his hand slips from the bass, yet the song performance seems to be unchanged. Or, during one of the songs, EVH breaks a string and the solos are not affected (he switches back to the steinberger to finish the song). Or, Hagar climbs the scaffolding while singing then switches back to normal mic during the song, and the sound is completely unchanged. So… theres a variety of things that make me scratch my head and say, umm, how could this concert video not be overdubbed with studio work? Even if I assume, hmm maybe this performance is, how to put it, “pharmacologically enhanced” (I dont know if it was or not, lets assume it’s not).

      EVH is doing tons of running around and dancing around and his playing is still flawless (tho maybe if I could play his solos, I’d be able to spot some off notes?).. so, is it real or is it memorex..

      If Hagar’s headset mic is this good, to not hear any breath even being so close to his mouth, geez, I need to find myself one too.

    Agree. Consider also that it was more expensive to shoot a concert in those days, so the stakes create even more incentive to doctor the final product.

    Rumors have also circulated for years that the amazing-sounding Ozzy/Randy “Tribute” album was heavily doctored, maybe even with Steve Lukather re-recording a bunch of parts.

      I dont mind that they overdubbed the audio since it makes a great product, just that they should know that what killed the 80s bands was being too artificial and fake. If it’s redone, it should say on the video box, and if it’s truly live, it should say live, and if today’s pop bands use autotune then it should say on the ticket before purchase, otherwise it is false advertising.

      Youtube has some great videos of newer Hagar interviews. He told the story that each band member had a private room under the stage on this tour and other tours. So during EVH’s long guitar solo, Hagar would go into the room where his guitar tech had already invited girls from the audience, and Hagar would get himself serviced, then he would return to stage afterwards. He said each band member had their own similar room so that during the solos they could follow this routine and this was pretty much planned out like that on the setlist for everyone to follow etc, and they had one of their crew do the recruiting of the ladies. So it’s clear why the band appear to be having the time of their lives 😀 I have always wanted to read the Hagar book.

      Friday is coming up and I have a great live video to post tomorrow..

    Hans Zimmer – Pirates – Live at Coachella 2017 Sunday, April 16th

    even classical musicians need stage presence. Amazing they can pull off a live orchestra in the california desert. great guitar leads! and guitar solo around 06:00.
    In the other songs from the same show, the drummers are on camera using roland mesh head e-drums.. 😛

    It’s friday by now at abbey road so I’ll post this 😛

    This is a live-studio video (from 2006) where McCartney plays some of his newer songs and also records some ad hoc songs on the spot, it aired on PBS/BBC. He demos the original 4-track tape recorder used on the first albums and plays the original mellotron and other cool stuff. At the end he makes a mini-song using live multi tracking and playing multiple instruments. Its about 1 hr long. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_and_Creation_at_Abbey_Road

    I’ll include two different links to the same thing because I’m not sure which one is best. I looked on PBS and it doesnt look like it can be purchased so I dunno?


    Paul McCartney – Chaos and Creation At Abbey Road


    Paul McCartney – Chaos & Creation at Abbey Road 1/7
    Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road, recorded on 28 July 2005, was a live concert given by Paul McCartney at Abbey Road Studios, specifically Studio 2, where many of The Beatles’ recordings were made.
    Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road was meant as a promotion for McCartney’s album Chaos and Creation in the Backyard. As the audience was of close friends and selected fans, the concert was intimate in nature and was littered with monologues and song fragments. It was shown on BBC Two in the United Kingdom on 17 December 2005,[1] and on PBS in the United States on 27 February 2006 as part of the performing arts series Great Performances.[2]
    McCartney plays left-handed and right-handed guitars, drums, harmonium, double bass, Mellotron, and even wine glasses in a reworking of the Wings song “Band on the Run”. He also reworks the Beatles’ track “Lady Madonna”, which he calls “Old Lady in New Clothes”, with a much slower tempo and a swung melody line.
    The bass McCartney uses on his performance of “Heartbreak Hotel” once belonged to Bill Black, Elvis Presley’s bass player who died in 1965.
