And in the blue corner...

Analog Industries Painful Virtuosity Day continues. Although, it's worth noting that the siren song of Mario trumps all other considerations. Blame Cody Gratner for the fact that you'll be humming this the rest of the day.

It's a relief knowing that there's at least *one* successor to Michael Angelo link [www.angelo.com]">link [www.angelo.com]

i also never played any of the mario variations, so there's no nostalgia there for me.

That dude is pretty impressive. At least it's musically interesting, until it turns in to the St. Elsewhere theme about midway.

The underground music from Super Mario is the best.

But that guy/girl (can you really tell?) would be a straight PIMP if he played the dungeon (4th level of each world) music.

But of course our man from Sweden manages to put them all to shame with his blistering "chops."

Suerduper outfit?!

Are you kidding me? The man's wearing a kimono, a scarf, and his ever present funky hat. It's horrible!

And whoever sold him that guitar strap should be shot.

That Michael Manring thing is hilarious. Maybe I'll just get rid of my Ultimate Support stands and replace them with music school dropouts.

Pretty impressive... until you watch someone do the mario theme - both parts- on an 11-stringed bass.

I knew the 11-stringed bass was good for something!
