This, Ladies & Gentlemen, Is How It’s Done…

Here’s a question. What’s just as cool as seeing the National Anthem sung by an amazing singer? I’ll tel you. It’s seeing the National Anthem being performed by an equally amazing guitarist. The National Anthem being shredded on the electric guitar certainly isn’t the most traditional of ways to perform the song, but it’s one of the absolute coolest.

With a soaring melody that’ll make a grown man cry and a masterful guitar player cranking that amp dial all the way up to 10, a guitar performance of the National Anthem is now an American staple, and that’s what an U.S. Army member just proved!

The REAL star of the show was U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Matthew Hart who before the game took the stage to perform an emotionally charged rendition of the National Anthem on the electric guitar. As you’ll see, with just one guitar and patriotism at heart, he was able to bring the deafening roars of thousands of people to stunned silence.
