So as some of you may know, this video is making the rounds right now

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94gKTlBPNmk&nohtml5=False


Nick Jonas showcasing some of his legendary fretwork. Discuss this guitar god and the absolute legitimacy of the country music awards (which I swear happen 4 times a year)


Tabs available here, if you think you're up to snuff: https://gyazo.com/9460fb7164de744ca2930116df3331c4
Check out my band Disturbed

His "nailed it" body language is really justified.
Good thing the sound guys made the guitar 10 times louder than the rest of the band or else the mastery might have gone unnoticed.

Meh, he fucked a few notes like any musician has when they do too just a little too much of whatever substance they're addicted too.

What if the substance is love?

Also a few? You sure about that? Or have your ears become accustomed to the sound of atonal and microtonal nonsense?

He's a plagiarist either way. I first played that solo years ago.
My old signature was too long. Have a daisy.

The first note sounds like it could have been something but we were misled. Lil Wayne showed more potential

Yeah, he muffed it pretty hard, but he's not an entirely incompetent player, as other videos out there show.

Meh, shit happens.

Hey, I mean, when it started out it sounded like it could've went somewhere good.

But you could say the same about almost anyone who can hold/play a note correctly

The first few notes sounded great.


Then he started playing out of key like a jobber and trying to find the right pitch with his bends

That Jonas solo is so wonderful, it's a real shame it's only about 5 seconds long. I'd love to hear an extended version.
I have nothing important to say

Quote by Duaneclapdrix at #33913523
It's probably because the song's is in Db and "that's hard"
TBF, it's D major tuned 1/2-step flat on a guitar, which is a lot easier.

Did someone say extended version? Go to 0:29.

lots of flirting with the other key without confirming. JUST LIKE THEIR LOVE IN THE MOVIE OH DAMN.

Did people expect anything different? He's just a pretty boy with a slightly above average amount of musical talent who is hired to be the face of a collective of unknown, far more talented individuals who actually write and produce the music.

They really should've hired a professional
#24
I wonder if he rehearsed that or was he like "nah bro just give me an axe and I'll freestyle it"

And which of those would be worse

I like how you can kinda tell he was just like 'eh fuck it' and stopped playing well before the short bridge was done

and also how he's clearly not playing the right chords at all during the duet part and the guitar's not even in the mix

he must have shown up and was like, 'hey so I sing this song in the car all the time and I'm so fucking coked up right now, put me onstage with that slag lmao'

I must have a bad ear for guitar cuz it sounds completely fine to me
Better than most guitar solos even

it's really not that bad tbh, if he had hit the note a semi tone below the one he did at 0:45 in the longer video the whole thing would have been passable. Instead he hit the wrong note and the whole thing sounded terrible. I'm not even sure the last note being off-key wasn't intentional, if he had slammed it and vibrato'd the crap out of it, it would've sounded fine.

Instead he's getting shit like this:

Yeah it was an honest mistake, at least he wasn't miming.

Great now the guitar is even more uncool. So uncool you can't even hipster irony it anymore. Assuming hipsters magically resurfaced as cool again somehow.
