"Playing" a Fernando Alonso lap of Bahrain in a Ferrari F10 – Click above to watch video after the jump

One of the questions creative types hate most is "Where do get your ideas?" So we won't ask where this guy got the idea to "play" a lap of Bahrain, we'll just chuckle and shake our heads at the fact that he actually did it. Sliding his fingers along a Gibson X-plorer, he recreates one of Fernando Alonso's entire laps at the Bahrain GP down to gear changes and high-rev oscillations. So it won't get this guy to Wembley, but it will get him all over the Internet, and that's almost like the same thing, right? Follow the jump to check it out. Top tip, Jordan!

      I hate to be a nit picker but.... I'm going to do it anyways. That's not a slide guitar, thats a normal electric guitar using a either glass or Plexiglas slider. This is a slide guitar: http://s3.hubimg.com/u/268550_f520.jpg

        uh... slide guitar is what the technique is called (you can technically play slide on any guitar), that picture you posted is of a resonator guitar....

      He wasn't playing in the right key.

      He was strumming middle strings, so he could definetely jumped an octave or two and made it sound like a proper F1 v8. This makes me think of the older bigger engines.

        1. That's not even remotely close to a cowboy hat.

        2. Just because he's using a technique called "slide guitar", doesn't make it "country" or "cowboy". Slide guitar originated from blues more than anything.

        3. Why even say something like that if you don't want us purists going after you?

        Awwww, come on, it's a dude in a cowboy hat playing a cowboy guitar.

        Close enough.

        Okay, now the guitar purists are gonna blast me on the "cowboy guitar" comment.

        Whatever the hell kinda gee-tahr it is... who cares?

        Post your own damn F1-lap-put-to-musical-instrument video. Use a harmonica or something.

      My ears hurt.

      I've no idea if anyone could do it better. Unless they can, I don't want to hear it.
