This "evolution of guitar solos" video is a good way to spend six minutes

Guitarist Mark Sidney Johnson of CDZA tears through a half-century of famous guitar solos in a new music video that covers everything from Chuck Berry and Pete Townsend to John Mayer and Jack White.

It’s more than just six minutes of a guy ripping sweet guitar solos, though that alone would make this worth six minutes of your time. A conveniently-labeled “FACT MAN” holds up placard that gives some, well, facts, man, on the history of solos in any given era.

Brandon Wall is a Sun-Times writer and never learned to play anything more complicated than bass guitar. You can follow him on Twitter.
