With the upcoming birthdays of such rockabilly luminaries as Sam Phillips, Scotty Moore, and Elvis, as well as the deaths of Buddy Holly, Bill Haley, and Carl Perkins, I thought I'd pay tribute with a bit of rockabilly guitaring.

Not that other days have been shit, but this ones just been pretty damn good.

fone said...

You are the biggest nerd ever. You would make an excellent comet.

Karlye said...

That is absolutely stupendous Jade. I love it.

I smirked when you stopped to drink out of your cup, it made my day.

Thank you for the early birthday present, tomorrow I'll be a year older than I was last year. :]

camilla said...

Bru said...

Amazing!
Kisses

punk in writing said...

Wicked! Both the guitar skills and the drinking action. ;)

In the words of the Stray Cats, Rockabilly Rules!

But you really should have worn your hair in a quiff. Looks like you have just the right amount of hair too.

JoeMama said...

Wow I've never seen you play a Fender before I don't think. Neato.

I think I saw flames shooting off the fretboard. Or it could have just been my monitor.

Cut That said...

I have even more respect for you.

stella said...

Yeeeuh! That was lovely.

Haras said...

Jesus Christ, Jade. That was nuts.


You look like you're 15, by the way.

angelic_cries said...

Oh my gawd!
;asldjkf

BITCHIN'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amelie said...

Oh shit Jade.

Charming tribute.

EXA

katy said...

Yup. That was pretty much amazing.
And cheered me up.
Thank you!!

Moz said...

wow.

all I can say is...

hardcore awesome.

I had something better to say than that, but I'm a little out of my mind right now and I don't know why. (NOT drug or alcohol-induced in case you're wondering)

alyssA said...

you are the best <3

ninjasareflippinsweet said...

That was
AMAZING.

I was in a chat and had to make everyone stop what they were doing to watch that.
I loved how you just took a drink while playing. lol.

btw your hair is awesome as always.

*goes to watch a bazillion more times*

Avian the Ninja Bitch said...

God, suuu much better at playing than I could ever be! I just got a shiny new Les Paul for Christmas... And can I play anything except Endlessly She Said or the first few minutes of Pachelbel's Cannon (Which has SO been done)? Not well, anyway!

-Jealous- Watashi karai goshujin rad GINOU(Z)!

Krystina said...

I JUST got home from buying my very first guitar. I'm intimidated, to say the least. Hahaha.

Amazing. : D

Davey! said...

You got skillz.

Seriously, you're fantastic on guitar.
Is there an EP coming out soon for AFI? I'm sorry to be such a bother, and you probably don't get the chance to read all of these anyways... but I was just wondering; I heard it was coming out sometime in December.

<3

LAUREN said...

love the hair color change.
suits you.
xo

I Burn Things said...

Damn. You are good. Indeed.

manz said...

Haha, loved the part where you took a few seconds break to drink water (or whatever that was) =P
<3 Loved it =]
Hope you had a great Christmas..
..Happy New Years =]
<3

vtolegend said...

Awesome Jade!! by the way= this vid is on youtube!!

Avian the Ninja Bitch said...

--- Is there anyone here that wasn't amazed with that?

Anni-Lynn said...

Wow.
I was hoping you'd posted another blog but I definitely didn't expect this. What a splendid surprise. Maybe you and Nick13 could have a rockabilly side project. That would be tres righteous. I can totally imagine it now.
By the way, your hair looks spectacular (as always).

Laughing Lotus said...

Sweet

Meg said...

Fantastic!

exorcist emma said...

Abstinynth said...

Incredible! You know, it completely reminded me of E-boogie by The Living End. I think you need another side project....hmmm?

Vanessa said...

that was awesome.

Kery said...

Ah Buddy Holly... The day the music died... I feel like watching Stand By Me & Peggy Sue Got Married...

Hey thanks for reminding us how good of a guitar player you are! Cheers! Now I'll go back to listening to Led Zep

Windmagician124 said...

Now you are just showing off XD

You have the right to show off though, that was AMAZING.

daaaamn.

kat said...

so rad, dear.
you played that SO well!
and is your hair now dyed black?
cause recently, i've noticed it was more of a chocolate brown.
i can't tell, though.
it could just be the lighting.

Shmuffles said...

You're so fabulous.
Did you know that?
(:

Mr. Heater said...

Dude. Pure awesome right there. Wait, gotta kick my browser for being a dip shit.... okay done. Anyways, I was just actually listening to a shit load of rockabilly and you put my guitaring to shame. Excuse me while I put a bag over my head and hide....

Jay

wendy said...

all i can say is WOW!!

u r AMAZING!! hell, wish i could play the guitar like that!

and that poll i went for lost. it's the only one on the poll i like. i would have preferred heroes, it's awesome!!

Captain Carson said...

Man, Jade, WOW.

What style god hath shone a light upon you? Excuse my babbling.

Okay, as my pal Jay said, your 1:46 clip puts anything I could EVER do to shame.

I'll join you in hiding, Jay.

The caustics won't caustic for me said...

You've inspired me.

Alexis Ann said...

the fact that you ROCKED that video, and that you had time to drink, made it THAT much better.

jade, you are so bomb

Shrubs. said...

Is this what you do when AFI and Blaqk Audio isn't busy?

Bran Muffin didn't make this.

hiimniko said...

Trauty said...

I am insanely jealous of you right now....insanely jealous! Thats was amazing. Love the hair by the way!

This Is Eternal said...

That was amazing Jade! Your hair looks wonderful too...

ChinchillaDust said...

I've been sick as a dog lately, so every thing would irritate me a little more than usual. This was a nice little ray of sunshine on an otherwise craptacular day. Thanks for posting it Jade.

I especially like the fact that you included Buddy Holly in your tribute. His was a career that ended way too quickly. Thankfully we still have his music to turn to Everyday. ;)

tragictrust said...

Shy Boys Win...you kick a$$. You're my number one guitar player...the person I inspire to be like.

AFireInside-GirL said...

'Mazin 'mazin! Damn, talk about flying fingers. >.< I envy you sooo much; I could never play guitar like you. seeing as I am pwned constantly by Guitar Hero, getting good on a real guitar is a untouchable fantasy. Lol. But seriously, awsome work man. You're an inspiration.

frantic1 said...

Little Drummer Girl said...

That is amazing. Your fingers just fly when you're playing. Your talent always amazes me.

Thank you for sharing this!! This made my day after having chemo. What a lovely surprise!! If I had a 'fantasy' date with you, it would involve just this: listening to you play guitar and sharing some of your favorite songs and music with me.

I know. I have always been called strange. Oh well. There are worse things to be! :)

JulietEchoSierra said...

Ha! Fuckin sweet. Hope the Blaqk Audio shows went well (I'm sure they did). Was tearing my hair out trying to get to Vegas but I couldn't make it. Love.
