With all respect due, I would still take Fieldy on bass, Dave Navarro on guitar,
and Danny Carey on drums :D

Most of her stuff is covers of crappy pop songs, but covering the Gorillaz with jazz instrumentation is... well, I'll let you decide.

Totally unaware of "Clint" and his Gorillaz. Watched the above for about 1 1/2 min and immediately decided it must have come from some rap song. So I googled it up and found a live show "with snoop dog" (I found an animated one I liked much better). I wasn't disappointed that I had validated my self having heard snoop but, turned it off before he got two sentences out. I think I'm loosing my mental flexibility and regress to "old school" at times. Really glad the young people like it so much. ~Right~

Meet Leo Pellegrino who is an amazing baritone sax player. If any of you have played a brass/reed instrument you know one of the harder skills to master is overtones. ( where you change the pitch using only air pressure and not the valves/keys ) Leo is a practitioner of a musical style he calls Brasshouse. Essentially he uses his sax (and tons of wicked overtones) to imitate an electronic dance music style known as House. The effect is interesting and technically amazing. If that kind of thing is not your style just hang in there past the 3 minute mark and he and the rest of the house band at Proms will jam on a couple of jazz standards that are worth a watch.

If you dig Leo, check out his other vids with bands Too Many Zooz and Lucky Chops who do a lot of busking in the NYC transit system.

Nerd alert!

I'm not sure how to classify this one. The video below uses an analog oscilloscope in X-Y mode to display the actual plot of the audio you're hearing. The output voltage of the right channel is plotted on the X axis and the left is on the Y axis. With audio frequencies the plots are changing so fast that the points display as a line or curve or, well... you'll see.

Not as wild as some of the other stuff in this thread, but Walk Off the Earth works with unusual instruments from time to time.

Okay, he's not playing on anything weird, but Phil Keaggy is unique and one of the most incredible guitar players to ever play. Here's a little sampling of him having fun. One of them on his 15k (maybe more) Olson.

He's real fun to watch. Enjoy! :thumbup:

I saw Phil Keaggy for the first time more than 3 decades ago at a local church. The place was packed to bursting and it was just him and his guitar. He was the first artist I'd ever seen who used a multi-track looping device in a live show. He'd record the guitar parts on the fly and add then play along adding more layers including percussion (banging on the guitar) and background vocals( he'd sing into the soundhole of the guitar so it's body mic would pick it up) and craft these fantastic complicated songs. A truly amazing guitarist. I've met him in person on two occasions and he is a very kind and patient individual. He hung around until he had spoken to everyone backstage before leaving the venue. Cool dude.

Hmmmmm... How do I describe Stevie T? Awkward nerdiness with face melting guitar skillz. That about sums it up.
