The music teacher and current guitarist for the band Modok (formerly with J Church, Rat King, and Ultimate Dragons) is attempting to break the Guinness Book of World Record for playing the longest guitar solo of all time, which right now stands at 24 hours and 18 minutes.
Guinness allows a five-minute break once an hour, and at the time of writing this, Didonato has been playing almost 24-hours (he began Sunday night (7 p.m. CST). So…perhaps he is close to breaking that record!
The whole endeavor has been streaming live from Red 7 in Austin via Ustream, HERE. Last time I check, David was taking a 5-minute break. I’m sure he needed it. Ugh, I’m exhausted even thinking about it.
Good luck to you David!
UPDATE on 5/16/12: He did it!! David now holds the World Record for longest guitar solo, coming in with a time of 24 hours and 55 minutes. Wow!
