If Guitar Was an Olympic Sport…Steve Vai & Ry Cooder Battle it Out in Crossroads

This is the classic guitar duel scene at the end of the 80’s movie, “Crossroads.”

The movie is about an old blues musician who sold his soul and Ralph Macchio is trying to win it back….you know like the Charlie Daniels song “Devil Went Down to Georgia.”

It used to bother me that one of my high school guitar heroes, Steve Vai, had to lose the duel to the Karate Kid playing air guitar. The actual guitarist playing Macchio’s parts was Ry Cooder. Anyway, a great movie…put it on your Netflix queue and check it out!!

If you need a break from the Olympics check out this classic guitar competition!!

Enjoy!
