1. Mark Knopfler

Decided to post this here because many of the guitarists mentioned in this thread feature.

Mark Knopfler has gathered together 60 guitarists for a re-recording of his 1983 tune Going Home (the theme from the movie Local Hero, for which he wrote the soundtrack). Guitarists featured include David Gilmour, Jeff Beck (his final recorded work apparently), Alex Lifeson, Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, Slash, Joe Satriani, Brian May, Steve Lukather, Bruce Springstein, Peter Frampton and, wait for it, Sheryl Crow.

Tune's out in March and benefits charity:

It's gonna be the full 30 minute blowout version.

Hey Stadler, your PM inbox is full.
Derek Sherinian probably stands 10 feet away from the urinal, shoots from downtown, and announces loudly that he's making history.

Bit 'busy' but I suppose that's what you get when 60-odd guitarists play over one another...

The tune proper kicks in at 3 minutes and the video 'helpfully' labels who's playing what and when. I think.

"Blues Licks: The Song".  I'll bet there will be some covers of it all over Youtube in the next few days, although it would be a nightmare to catch every little buried part.  It's cool that he managed to assemble so many people together, although it's unfortunate that the format really homogenizes dozens of different unique players into mostly sounding very similar to each other.

Half of them - and it's the ultimate testament to greatness - you can catch without needing a name on the screen.

Most true to the original song: Peter Frampton
Dick swinging the hardest on entrance: Brian May
Most surprising melody: Toni Iommi
Most obnoxious: Tom Morello
Best tone: Joe Bonamassa

Agree with this. It was inappropriate for the type of exercise this was and it really pulled me out of the piece.

Dick swinging the hardest on entrance: Brian May

Well, of course, that line caught my eye.  His part didn't jump out at me as much as I thought it would, but I've just always wanted to
be able to include 'dick swinging the hardest on entrance' in a DTF post, and get away with it. :lol

But, Tony Iommi and the overlap with Brian was terrific.

Frampton never ceases to amaze.  Enjoyed Steve Lukather as well.

(oy, only two commercial interruptions during the first three minutes >:()
...going along with Dragon Attack's Queen thread has been like taking a free class in Queen knowledge. Where else are you gonna find info like that?!

Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

Seen Frampton 8 times. An absolutely awe inspiring show as a guitarist and singer.

I got a little farther, but it was bland, and watching the graphics with the names gave me a headache.
