A little cliche in that speed and difficulty are the same thing etc., but Extreme's Flight of the Wounded Bumblebee. Of course, I can play it with one finger, my eyes closed and the guitar behind my head. Asleep too.

Now.....you see.....you almost had me impressed there. I can play it with both hands tied behind my back, my head on fire, and whilst technically dead.

Rumour has it that if you play Microsoft CDs backwards you will hear Satanic messages.

Worse still, is that if you play them forwards they will install Windows.

Q- How do you know it's time to leave Neverland?

A- When the big hand touches the little hand.

Hey. tell us how to play technically dead, that sounds like a awesome trick. :D

Just listen to any Yngwie Malmsteen record. :lol:

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

Well, there's always Faerie's Aire and Death Waltz :twisted:

But I suspect that's not quite what you had in mind.

edit

I found the second page. I think it's a bit easier to play, because there is a section marked "there is no wrong way to play this"

I wrapped a newspaper ’round my head
So I looked like I was deep

Well, he's kinda cheating with delay, right? So how about Rimsky-Korsakov's original version? :)

They say only a pawnshop guitar can play the blues. An eBay one does it better. A guitar's bound to feel unloved if her owner plasters pictures of her over the internet for all to see and then sells her off to the highest anonymous bidder.

You people are weak. I don't even have hands, I'm deaf, and I can play Flight of the Bumblebee, Jimi's Star Spangled Banner, Eruption, on guitar and Donna Lee on bass, all at the same time.
