Coffee Talk #421: “Shreds” Videos and You

Welcome to Coffee Talk! Let’s start off the day by discussing whatever is on your (nerd chic) mind. Every morning I’ll kick off a discussion and I’m counting on you to participate in it. If you’re not feelin’ my topic, feel free to start a chat with your fellow readers and see where it takes you. Whether you’re talking about videogames, Groundwork’s Bolivia Aipac La Paz , Juan Manuel Marquez getting jobbed out of a win over Manny Pacquiao, or the impressive uselessness of Buboy Fernandez, Coffee Talk is the place to do it.

Several years ago I came across several “Shreds” videos by a YouTube user called StSanders. He overdubbed horrendously bad guitar playing over memorable performances…and made art. His clip of Jake E. Lee “shredding” while Ozzy Osbourne clapped just about killed me. His overdub of Metallica’s “One” completely cracked me up and was extra funny to me since I knew how to play most of the song.

Today I’m going to kick off the week with a laugh. Here are three of my favorite “Shreds” videos. Feel free to post your own YouTube links in the comments section. If you find these funny, head on over to StSanders’ web site and give him some props.

  1. That metallica one was hilarious

    Ray, i didn't know you played guitar

    I used to know most of that song as well, but i play mainly acoustic, so the fret tapping doesn't quite work well, lol

    1. Yes, once upon a time I was a thoroughly mediocre guitarist. I miss it a lot. When I hit the lottery on Wednesday, one of the first things I'm going to buy is a Rainsong acoustic.

  2. I think "One" must be standard learning on this site, as it was also in my repertoire back when I was able to play more. Unfortunately between lack of time and my hand always hurting thanks to neck injury, I just don't play anymore.
