Ya know, I could sit here and make a few jokes about how lame this is, how ridiculous it is he made everyone sit through a FOUR MINUTE LONG guitar solo – which, let’s be honest, HAS to feel like eternity if you’re there – and especially how nobody at that wedding even knows what song he’s playing. I could honestly go on and on and on trashing the groom’s decision here. It’s very easy.
…but I’m not going to do that. In fact, I’m going to do the exact opposite of that. I’m gonna stand up from the chair I’m sitting in and give it up to this dude. There’s no doubt he spent months learning that guitar solo only to realize that, since he’s in his thirties and took up playing the guitar as a side hobby to get away from the office and the fiancé for a bit, and isn’t in a band, nobody’s ever going to be able to hear him play it. Probably bummed him out and gave him that, what do they call it…postpartum depression? Yeah. This dude got postpartum depression. But then, when – as this YouTube video’s description fills us in on – his wife told him he could “make an entrance” at his wedding…
…he took a page out of The Joker’s playbook and informed her she’d used a poor choice of words. He was gonna do the guitar solo and he was gonna do the entire fucking thing. He was even gonna do part of it standing on a side stage that I assume was built specifically for this!
Unreal. Nothing but respect to this dude.
P.S. Bit of a weird song to play at a wedding though, as the music video ends with the death of the bride. Seems like a bad omen.
