Your Wednesday YouTubery

Fundamental truth #167: ask any guy what musical instrument he wishes he could play and he’ll invariably tell you the guitar. This is because there’s a societal myth out there pertaining to women enjoying being wooed by guitar. Rickey has never had the opportunity to try this out, but perhaps once he obtains Guitar Hero III, he’ll test this theory on Ms. Henderson. (We hear that the ladies love being serenaded by the Halo theme). But in the meantime, we’ll ask our female readers this question: how many of you consider the gentlemen in the video below to be viable dating candidates?



Ah yes, the classical guitar: not quite rock n’ roll... not quite classical music... …just 100% jangly and awful. If you’re an aspiring musician who also happens to be asexual, well then, the classical guitar is most definitely up your alley. These guys don’t quite rock out but if you look closely, there’s definitely some most excellent head bobbing going on in this video.

We tip our caps to these rockers for making “Bohemian Rhapsody” sound even dorkier than the original Queen version. Rickey particularly enjoyed the guitar solo at the 3:10 mark, when Woo totally loses his shit and succumbs to a prolonged bout of head bobbing. We’re not certain whether that’s the least or the most animated Asian we’ve ever seen…And he does seem to be smirking an awful lot, doesn’t he? Care to take bets on the percentage of this band possessing English degrees? Rickey is guessing two thirds, but we could easily be looking at a triumvirate of Loyola English Lit majors here.

And for all those who would say that it’s easier to criticize than create, we’ll have you know that Rickey already has plans to start up his own classical guitar trio: “Wyld Scallions.”

See, I'm convinced that the Zither is what gets women hot and bothered.

Actually, the California Guitar Trio does a pretty mean "Miserilou." But you have to like that geeky Robert Fripp stuff. I mean, he plays guitar sitting down.

Nylon strings, man. Gotta love it.

However, I find it hard to believe Wayne and Garth would get a kick out of this...

Rickey Henderson said...

A zither? What the shit is a zither? Rickey wooes his women with his musical spoons.

That may be the best Bohemian Rhapsody cover I've ever heard.

Seriously though, i think the sax is pretty sexy. Oooh musical spoons are verrrrryyyy romantic.

Smitty can belch the alphabet. Does that count?
