$100 GUITAR PROJECT Live, Featuring Alex Skolnick, Colin Marston, and More

Last winter, guitarist/composer Nick Didkovsky was hosted by legendary avant-garde composer John Zorn at The Stone for a weeklong residency. One of these shows featured members of TestamentGorgutsMeek is MurderBangladeafy, and more, performing and improvising on the $100 Guitar, an instrument that Nick bought from Elderly Instruments in 2010.

I stopped by to capture some of the night, which we documented in the below clip. If you want to learn more, pick up the album – featuring original compositions by all of those contributors, and more – at this link.
