*technically speaking

OTOH, the next time someone says they're nervous about playing guitar onstage, point them to this.....proof positive that even total suckyness gets applause.

Was that serious? For real?

So, that's Lil Wayne? I couldn't dig the playing or the riffs no matter how hard I tried, and my mind kept constantly thinking of the 3 year olds who might pick up a guitar at Day Care or somewhere? I mean, the more skilled ones.

Now, on the bright side, many 'beginners', though it's rare, but whoever they are, and Lil Wayne have the same thing in common - confidence! Yeah, that might propel them to fame. Loads of confidence and showmanship!

Except for the majority of the time where Lil Wayne just acts like a dish rag - I would get that checked for a neuro-muscular control issue or take a blood sample, some lab work, anything? That might explain?

But L'il Wayne isn't famous because of his guitar skills he's famous for his rapping and just happened to grab a guitar now and then. I did see a video of him with a gutiar not sure if it's the same one since I can't look at the vid at work and all he did was bang a couple chords out, not much playing but I think it's more about a look he was going for than anything else.

yup, and they apparently confiscated his iPod, so he can't even catch up on GN podcasts while inside...

unfortunately, it's real. unfortunately, he apparently wants to do a whole album of this stuff he call 'guitar playing'. unfortunately, the tv networks will probably give it heavy rotation.

lmmfaoooo at some of the youtube comments tho - one of my faves being "yo, how d'you afford all dem expensive guitars and you aint even enuff doe [sic] to pay for lessons?!?"

There is deep voodoo in the "Lil" name.

Other Lils making serious coin, regardless of musical ability:

Lil Boosie
Lil Bow Wow
Lil Jon
Lil Kim
Lilith Fair

This is weird, I looked up Lil gun to see if I could find a funny picture or something?

There's this fabulous horse called Lil Gun, like a racehorse, and whad'ya know, Lil Wayne!

Now this part ain't funny. Anybody can google anything, and he'll probably come and shoot me. Oh well...

Still googling. You were sure right about the iPod, and thanks for this thread which will still get me shot , but hmm... Lil Wayne shot himself when he was 12 so I hope he hasn't lost any of his marksmanship skill either.

Bruce Springsteen predicted the whole gun-toting "Lil" rapper / gangster craze back in 1973, with this lyric from his song Rosalita: "You pick up Lil Dynamite, I'm gonna pick up Lil Gun ..."

All he had to do was mention Lil ... didn't need to change his name to Lil Bruce. Two years later he came out with Born to Run, one of the biggest selling albums in history. 'nuff said.

"Lil" = devil at the crossroads voodoo. Serious.

= Lil Devil.

lmmfaoooo....

in googling that for yuckage, I found out his daughter has her own girl group, too. damn. I swear I'm not gonna say anything about her rhyming "it always rains on me" and her daddy's rather euphemistic use of that term in one of his 'love' songs. suffice it to say, my ears will be seeking compensation from the lot of them.
