24 hours and 18 minutes – that’s how long it took an Austin guitarist to set a new world record for the longest guitar solo.
David DiDonato, a member of an Austin metal band known as Modok, began his record-breaking quest on 7 p.m. Sunday night (May 13). DiDonato played for a total of 24 hours and 55 minutes, with five-minute breaks thrown in every hour. He recorded much of his performance at Austin’s Red 7 on UStream.tv. Check out a few riffs above.
How long do you think it will be until some other guitarist sets a new solo record? I call upon the amazing talent of Rise of Saturn to give it a shot.
