Don’t You Tell Me Not To Play Guitar

To quote the source, “Here’s something that you don’t see every day…”

Well, let’s continue quoting. Just because.

Put together by Australian TV “Guitar Gods and Masterpieces” host Hack Wanger, “Don’t You Tell Me Not To Play Guitar” is a massive international charity effort to raise money for the E.J. Whitten Foundation to promote awareness and fight against prostate cancer, as well as an anti-depression efforts.

The lineup features a gent going by the name Dorian Chiiwahwah Phallic, Astral Cosmic Travel Agency (apparently his backing band), and several dozen guest guitar players including our own Steve Morse and Joe Satriani.

Thumbs up to Paul Gilbert’s t-shirt.

The track is available for purchase on Amazon and iTunes, and you can also support the cause by buying t-shirts or making donations directly to the E.J. Whitten Foundation. This effort is also part of the Epic Guitar Solo contest.

Thanks to ESP Guitars for the info.

    Great video, great axemen, most of them I’ve never heard of before but I’ll have to look for.

    But I’ve probably listened to so many Steve Morse solos that I think I recognize bricks of that one from Rapture of the Deep or maybe Abandon. Love his playing, and those bricks are damn good. But they’re old friends of mine.

    Bloody fantastic… in the times so quick and modern and fashionable and unrocky thereĀ“s no need for guitar solo/s… there over here is pretty load of them… anĀ“ what anĀ“ how…. double anĀ“trippled load. DonĀ“t please them Ā“em not to play guitar, donĀ“t tell Ā“em, if .
    So ludicrous anĀ“ so preposterous, so beautifull.
