Ok this needs some setup in order to get to the punch line, so it is very important that you watch these videos in the order that they are presented. (and you don’t need to know how to play guitar to appreciate this which is why I placed it in this section instead of the musicians section)….


First thing’s first, below is a video from the 93 NAMM show during the “Ibanez Jam”. In it you have Paul Gilbert and six other incredible legendary players taking part in this shredathon such as Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Reb Beach, Andy Timmons, Shawn Lane, etc. You don’t have to watch the whole thing if you don't want to, but you do need to check out Paul’s solo which begins at the 6:01 mark. Trust me!

Ok so did you catch what he did? He played his whole solo with his teeth AND he was also playing left handed, as if he was actually channeling the spirit of Jimi Hendrix! :shock:





Now below is a video of a clinic Paul was giving a few years later where he talks about that jam and explains to everyone how in the hell he was able to play left handed and with his teeth! :lol:

Haha, that's awesome. I'm not a massive fan of his music (though I do listen to some stuff, and can always appreciate his playing!) but I love his personality, he seems like he'd be brilliant fun to know.

Ha! Thanks for the links thats awesome. I totally missed why he did those songs left handed in the first place though, just to make it a challenge?

He did it for a laugh because he can't actually play left handed. :lol:

Ive seen the video where he cheats with his loop pedal but that's some funny stuff in this set of vids!
