  3. Physicist Ben Tippett Weighs in on Marty McFly’s Guitar Explosion and the Physics of Famous Guitar Powers

    I guess physics just worked differently in the 80s, guys.

    Movies aren't exactly known for caring a whole lot about how physics work, and some of the finest examples of this fact have come in the form of scenes where the power of rock coming from an electric guitar causes all kinds of crazy effects. So, CBC Music asked physicist Ben Tippett to shed some light on the real physics behind those power chords.

    Last time we heard from teenager Tina S. she was wowing the world (or, well, me and some readers at least) by turning out an a-m-a-z-i-n-g version of Eddie Van Halen's "Eruption" guitar solo like it ain't no thing. This time she's gone classical with Patrick Rondat's "Vivaldi Tribute," a guitar adaptation of part of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. We're not worthy! We're not worthy!

    Anyone worried that our morning news report isn't taken seriously enough... You're right. It isn't.

  8. Science Proves Chicks Dig a Guy Carrying a Guitar

    I think it's safe to work from the assumption that any guy who has ever picked up a guitar did so for one reason and one reason only -- because he heard that chicks are into guys who play guitar. According to a French study, that piece of folk wisdom may have a kernel of truth to it, as a series of social experiments suggest that women find a man more attractive when he is holding a guitar.

It's one of those "you have to see it for yourself" things.

    Musician Jocelyn Pelichet has now gone about putting his mark on the internet by performing this rather outstanding selection of guitar riffs from the early 90's without so much as blinking between them. Though his choices can be quibbled, there are 50 of them after all, none can say he doesn't perform them with some serious aplomb. The man blazes through the 50 riffs while still making each easily recognizable. Perhaps the only complaint one can have is the drums in the background but he goes so far as to provide one without it. How considerate!
