Like much of the world, Italian guitarist Luca Stricagnoli is staying put during the COVID-19 outbreak. But that hasn’t stopped him from playing like a boss while wearing his respirator mask. Luca’s performance of Gorillaz’ track Clint Eastwood is a uplifting dose of what we need during these trying times. The future is coming on…

It’s not in chronological order, nor does it list any tracks, but that just means you’ve got to rise to the challenge to identify all the tracks that inspired GMC Guitar’s epic lead guitar medley. Guitarist Ben Higgins was kind enough to provide tabs if you dare attempt it yourself.
Musician Feng E might only be 12 years old at the time of this post, but he continues to wow us with his talent. Here, he performs a fingerstyle cover of Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb with all of the nuance and depth that you’d expect from someone with many more years of experience.
“I meant like Wonderwall from Oasis you know.” Professional musician Lucas Brar pokes fun at how people ask him what his real job is, along with one of the more popular requests he hears from party guests. His interpretation of the track really brought a smile to our faces.
Musician Luca Stricagnoli continues to wow us with his fingerstyle arrangements of popular songs, this time taking on Eminem’s rap anthem Lose Yourself from the movie 8 Mile, giving it a whole new sound and texture that still had us moving our arm to the beat when the rhythm kicked in.
Back in 2016, musician Marcos Kaiser recorded this excellent cover version of Chuck Berry’s 1958 track Johnny B. Goode. As one of rock and roll’s seminal tracks, it sounds great in this acoustic fingerstyle arrangement. Just try not to get your groove on when he starts playing.
May I have your attention, please? Musician Luca Stricagnoli is back with his triple-necked guitar to entertain us with another great acoustic cover – this time taking on Eminem’s The Real Slim Shady with some funky fingerstyle picking. As an added bonus, this version won’t offend anyone.
Musician Dave Rucci’s wife really likes Law & Order: SVU, so he decided to record something special for her. Listen and enjoy as Dave plays composer Mike Post’s familiar theme song entirely on acoustic guitars. We actually think it sounds better than the original. What do you think?
Crank up your headphones and enjoy as musician Alexander Mills turns in an absolutely fantastic cover version of Dave Matthews Band’s 1996 classic Crash Into Me. This is why we truly love the Internet – discovering incredibly talented people we wouldn’t have otherwise heard of.
Guitarist Luca Stricagnoli is back to wow us with yet another incredible fingerstyle performance, this time, taking on the incredibly dynamic Muse track Supermassive Black Hole, and extracting way more sound out of single guitar than should be physically possible.
From Metallica’s Fuel played at a gas station, to RHCP’s Under the Bridge performed under a bridge, musician Danilo Vicari’s compilation video provides some overly literal context to familiar bass and guitar riffs. We were hoping he would play Def Leppard’s Rocket.
In a video that is the very embodiment of “don’t try this at home,” guitarist Davidlap performs a brief solo while it looks like his hands are ablaze. He created special gloves to protect his hands from injury, and the fire was far enough from the guitar that it didn’t get damaged.
