Because dream it and you can achieve it (unless you’re painfully unqualified like most of the people I meet and try to inspire in real life), this is a video of musician Charles Berthoud covering Scott Joplin’s classic of all ragtime classics ‘The Entertainer’, with a fingerstyle performance on electric
533 attempts in the making, this is a video of Guitar Hero 2 world record holder CarnyJared full combo-ing Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Free Bird’ at 300% speed. Talk about fingers of fury! Jared says he has all the Guitar Hero 2 world records now, which I can neither confirm nor disconfirm,

Because there’s zero chance of ever forgetting this is the internet, here’s a video of musician Bob Strachan performing Coolio’s ‘Gansta’s Paradise’ to the tune of Johnny Cash’s ‘Folsom Prison Blues’. It works surprisingly well. I can’t say I’m shocked, but I did wake up this morning in the backyard
