To kick off the Helsinki festival this past weekend, Alexi Laiho from Children of Bodom invited 100 guitarists onto the stage to all perform a track written specially for the occasion.
There’s a whole clip of the live stream but I cued it up at the start of the guitar playing for your viewing pleasure.
In similar fashion, a drum teacher calledÂ Dino VerdadeÂ assembled 156 guitarists in Sao Paulo forÂ Bateras 100% Brasil to perform AC/DC’sÂ You Shook Me All Night Long and Megadeath’sÂ Symphony Of Destruction along with a live band featuring former Sepultura drummerÂ Jean Dolabella.
I imagine that YouTube doesn’t do either of them justice, but plug in your headphones, sit back, and enjoy a virtual wall of sound. You earned it.
