Friday Video: Just wait 'til we get Jam Sessions ....

This week was such a killer on the news front that we decided it might be a good idea to seek out a kinder, gentler week-ending video. Something ... soothing. And something that makes us all wish we could play the guitar as well as this guy does as he picks out the Mario theme. Check it out after the jump.

Of course, we've got to ask: anyone else playing (or trying to play) game themes on their own?

mario on classical guitar is pretty fiiiiine. he should've ended it earlier, though. he got a little futzed up towards the end, but it's still better than i can do!

i can rock the Zelda II theme, however. it's the only one i ever remember. that and parts of Bloody Tears.

I arranged a version of the Secret of Mana theme for classical guitar. I plan to get around to a few more from the soundtrack, but my time is limited of late.

He does a decent job on the mario theme, but I think he was working too hard for accuracy and didn't really play into the strengths of the instrument.

nice medley, but do we really have to hear about every kid that learns to play a video game theme on his instrument? I know it's mostly Joystiq and not DS fanboy but you just happened to post the straw that broke the camel's back =P
