Wait For It: Put Your Earphones In For The Sickest Music You’ll Ever Hear From A Busted Guitar

If you're like me and are always on the lookout for a great YouTube video to watch, new music to listen to or just flat-out something you've never seen or heard before, I think you're in luck with this here post.

We live in a society where we don't talk enough about how brilliant Ichika Nito is. Yeah, he may have nearly two million YouTube subscribers, but those are from all across the globe. Most of my friends, and possibly a decent chunk of this blog's readership, don't know who he is. It's a problem I intend to put a dent in right now.

Not that Ichika needs me to gas him up whatsoever. I gotta say, though — this dude is one of the best guitar players on the planet. As a guitarist in my own right, I feel obligated to show you how good Ichika is at making musical lemonade out of the sourest figurative lemons you could ever imagine.

Fair warning: This video I'm about to introduce you to? It's painful to hear at the beginning. I promise the payoff is worth it. Hence the headline's instructions: 1) HEADPHONES IN; 2) WAIT FOR IT. Also, don't look at the comments on the YouTube video before viewing. Spoilers abound.

OK are we safe? I'm gonna skip several lines to be more certain…

I realized putting "best drop ever" in the headline would've spoiled the surprise, even if it'd be more attention-grabbing. This fold-up type of guitar is something I've never even seen before. I love the tag at the end where he plays the notes individually and they almost don't even squeak out any sound at all.

Anyway, I hope you followed the instructions and that this brought a little light to the end of your Monday.
