David Didonato is perhaps the only guitar player in the history of the world who is begging for a shorter solo. When he stepped on stage at the beginning of his set he wanted to beat the record for the longest guitar solo ever played. This record comes in at a measly 24 hours and 18 minutes. If Didonato beats this he will also win the title of most calloused fingers of all time.
The event is currently taking place at Red 7 in Austin, Texas and costs $1 an hour. A total of $25 is not too steep of a price to pay to watch Didonato rock his way to greatness. If you live in Austin, stop in to cheer him on for the final moments of his set. We’re rooting for you David. Melt some faces.
