Anyone can play guitar indeed.

Just killing. That's pretty cool. But those birds been listening to Sonic Youth a little bit too much.

I love this idea, birds on an electric guitar. Just discovered it yesterday, thanks to the missus who pointed me to the YT clip you've linked to, Dundee. Posted it onto Facebook this morning, and was thinking of posting it to the Blue in a day or two if nobody else had. Cool that you posted it here at Music, though.

BTW, Dundee, you on Facebook? Any of you MeFiMu regulars on FB? mica? snsranch? chococat? I know Karlos the Jackal is, we're friends over there. Anybody who wants to hook up on FB, maybe chime in here, or send me some MeMail, or look me up on FB: samm.bennett1

yea, I am. I'll look ya up when I get home from work.

Those birds are awesome. I wonder if I can get my rabbit to do something like that.

Video was cool, but they need a bird-operated drum machine or something. You can't dance to it!

Isn't there someone here on MeFiMu who has a keyboard-playing chicken in his band? Who is that?

(There's a FB link in my profile; feel free to friend me, people.)

This became a post on the blue a few months ago. Beautiful stuff.

There you have it! Posted to the blue back in January! You gotta get up pretty early to catch the worm (or, the electric guitar) round here at Mefi.

The idea, originally, was to post this on the Blue. But after preparing the upload and reading one of the "Are you sure you really want to do this" messages I saw that someone else had beaten me to it. I figured that quite a few MeFiMoos had missed it (I had, as had you Flapjax), so I thought I'd post it on our bit anyway - no harm done.

I'm not on Facebook or any similar site. Most of the spare time I have is spent writing and recording. And I have another major call on my spare time - theatre. Taken together it leaves, basically, sweet fuck all time for anything else. The trouble with these blog sites is that you have to maintain them - and that's where, for me, it all goes out the window: an inital rush of enthusiasm and then....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
