Gui­tars On The Beach 2

Guitar Techniques - - Intro -

6 Septem­ber sees the re­turn of the Gui­tars On The Beach world-record bid in Lyme Regis, a re­peat of the 2013 event which saw 2,267 gui­tarists of all stripes gather to­gether on the town’s beach to play Buddy Holly’s Rave On, set­ting a record as Bri­tain’s Big­gest Band in the process. This year, there will be a re­peat per­for­mance of Rave On, and spe­cial guest Ian Gillen will lead the as­sem­bled six-stringers in a mass ren­di­tion of Smoke On The Wa­ter. Sta­tus Quo’s Rock­ing All Over The World com­pletes the set.

The or­gan­is­ers of the Fen­der­spon­sored event hope to sur­pass the world record for the great­est num­ber of gui­tarists play­ing one song to­gether – a record held since 2009 by a Pol­ish event, which amassed 6,546 play­ers. The Lyme Regis event will also have 20 live bands on the beach – to take part, see www.guitarsonthebeach.co.uk, where you can sign up for free.
