Lee Ranaldo Taught a Guitar Clinic in NYC

This level of amazingness pretty much never happens. Lee Ranaldo, Rolling Stone's 33rd greatest guitarist of all time, ran a guitar clinic in NYC last month. At Other Music he gave a demonstration showing some of his more unusual techniques he has utilized for playing a guitar. Everyone who was able to attend got an up close look at how he uses pedals, drum sticks, a bow, hanging a guitar from the ceiling, etc. Video has surfaced of the event, which you can watch below. The highlights for me were the bored teenager who had to have been dragged by his dad, and Lee telling the crowd not to be precious with their instruments.

Check out Lee Ranaldo's website here. Also, make sure to see Lee Ranaldo and The Dust supporting their fantastic new album when they come to your town.
