[LINK] Sunday at Luckenbach, Texas - 1,859 pickers played “Luckenbach, Texas” and “This Land Is Your Land” to take the world record for largest recorded guitar ensemble. (and they did it in 105° heat)
The previous record was broken in 2007 when 1,802 Germans played “Smoke On the Water.”
The event was staged by the charity Voices of a Grateful Nation, which benefits their Welcome Home Project for soldiers and veterans.
1,859 guitar players in one spot- and it wasn’t an Eric Johnson concert!
