To celebrate July 4, the Fender team put together a fun video of guitar stars, hobbyists, and working musicians of all ages and styles performing "The Star Spangled Banner."
They're also asking guitarists to "continue the revolution" of rocking the song on guitar, as Jimi Hendrix famously did at the Woodstock Music & Art Fair in 1969. If you don't know how to perform "The Star Spangled Banner," you can take a quick and easy lesson by CLICKING HERE.
Enjoy wishing the United States of America a "Happy Birthday" — loud, sweet, funky, rockin', jazzy, or whatever you desire on YOUR guitar!!!
