    This is a video of a girl performing the Super Mario theme on a sheng, an ancient Chinese instrument that dates back as far as 1100 BC. It sounds like it was MADE to perform the theme. It wasn't though, because the Super Mario theme didn't exist until 1985. That's a 3,085 ye... / Continue →

    This is a video of Vimeo member Mc Cool using an electric piano as a controller to play Tekken. Impressive, but I've beat video games using a guitar before. "Rock Band and Guitar Hero don't count." Sure they do. *air guitaring* "Wait -- was that a Taylor Swift song?" I WA... / Continue →

    These are a couple videos of Leonardo Da Vinci's (previously only conceptual) Viola Organista being played in real life. The instrument was built by Polish concert pianist Slawomir Zubrzycki from a drawing Da Vinci made almost 500 years ago. 500 years ago -- can you even imag... / Continue →

    This is the guitar that's been customized via Sharpie with some legit looking Lord Of The Rings graphics by 16-year old artist Vivian Xiao. Sixteen! I wasn't making anything at sixteen but an ass out of myself and $2.38 an hour bussing tables at Outback Steakhouse. Vivian sp... / Continue →

    This is Geekologie reader Doug's home-built Guitar2-D2 electric guitar. He said at first he wasn't gonna send it to me because he felt like that would be too narcissistic of him. Then I think he chugged a couple beers and warmed up a little. I've avoided spreading this link ... / Continue →

    This is a series of videos by Youtuber 331Erock of him playing metal on top of geeky theme songs. Not gonna lie, I was headbanging pretty hard till I chipped a tooth on my printer. Now one of my front teeth looks like a fang, but not in a cool way like I'm a lizardman or some... / Continue →

    Remember Zelda violin girl? Well she's back, this time with a Lord of the Rings medley shot in the hills of New Zealand overlooking the ocean. She's not as animated as she was last time, but still very, VERY animated. Like, more than any Pixar movie. Hit the jump for high p... / Continue →

    Okay it's not actually a xylophone, it's a marimba, which is like a xylophone, but without all the crazy spelling. The first video is the main Zelda theme, but there are a couple other ditties as well, including the Song of Storms, Gerudo Valley theme, Saria's Song and the Son... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy who I'll refer to as brobro but whose actual name is John (NOT James) Taylor playing Rimsky-Korsakov's iconic 'Flight Of The Bumblebee' on a guitar at 600 BPM. You know, JUST LIKE THE TITLE SAID. If you were hoping for something else you've come to th... / Continue →

    Seen here serenading gravel, a water-boatman celebrates being the world's loudest animal (NOT largest testicled) in relation to body size. How do they do it? The same way you would if you could -- strumming their wieners. *performs Dueling Banjos with a bro* Scientists from... / Continue →

    Please, no Kurt Cobain jokes in the comments. Police raided a suspected gun-dealer's home in LuleÃ¥, Sweden, and found, among other things (possibly including unsafe sex-toys -- you never know), a homemade shotgun guitar. Or is it a guitar shotgun? Neither? Just shoddily cr... / Continue →

    Some nutcase dressed as Scorpion playing the Mortal Kombat theme on an accordion: it's why Youtube was invented. Well, that and me with a grocery bag over my head ranting about how Taco Bell always forgets to give me a ramekin of cheese with my nachos. STOP CUTTING CORNERS YO... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy about to set his parents' living room ablaze with his homemade flamethrowing trombone (don't be jealous, Lady GaGa!). And yes, from now on he will be known as the flameboner. Also, the guy in the marching band that set all the baton twirlers on fir... / Continue →

    Note: Videos are after the jump because there wasn't enough cowbell for the front page. This is a video series of some Japanese guy playing the music and sound effects to old Nintendo games on a violin as they're being played. He has a whole bunch of them on his Youtube pag... / Continue →

    This is a video of once-renowned bounty hunter Boba Fett reduced to peddling Zelda tunes on the accordion for handouts. What happened Boba? And please don't say Dog. That guy couldn't catch a bounty if his mullet depended on it. And it probably does. Hair product doesn't g... / Continue →

    This is a video of a cat rubbing itself against the hand of a guitar player. It's awesome. So awesome, in fact, I've decided to learn how to play the guitar so the cat will play with me. GOD KNOWS THE DOG WON'T DO IT. *ahem* Chloe. YOU HAVE AN UNDERBITE WHY WON'T YOU LOVE ... / Continue →

    Because music is dead and so are the guinea pigs I had as a child, here's a little demo of the Misa Digital Guitar. No, not Miso. That's a Japanese seasoning, silly! And, not to flex my tubular internet muscles or anything, but I can eat a ball of wasabi the size of a large ... / Continue →

    That title I came up with made me think of Shredder and the Ninja Turtles. Did anybody else get that feeling? It felt like a tingle. And I'm not talking about Tingle the map-seller in the Zelda series. Although I do know what he feels like too because he touched my butt onc... / Continue →

    This is a Millennium Falcon guitar that was spotted by intrepid Geekologie Reader Isaac. Except it's not really a functional guitar, it's just a guitar neck glued to a Millennium Falcon toy. Still, I suppose it COULD be a real Millennium Falcon guitar if you glued a pickup to... / Continue →

    Lucky McDonalds customer 0iz0 just so happened to score the most covered of all chicken strips: the Ocarina of Thigh. The shining beam of light accompanied by the melodic Zelda jingle blared out of the chicken select treasure box that was handed to me by a late night, tired,... / Continue →
