Title: Chick and Herbie, unedited

Here's a rare recording taken right from the board before being cleaned up in post-production.

Sorry. But I found this to be hilarious and remarkably well done.

Okay, there are apparently a bunch of these videos and I'm just late to the party.

A friend of mine referred me to the one I posted. He wrote: "I've been listening to this and thinking it seems to really blow. But now I think it might be a joke." As a new viewer, completely unfamiliar with the genre, it's true that at first, it seemed plausible that they were just setting up for a humorous segue into a real tune. But it never segued.

The first shred video I had ever seen was this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clF_SNa23lI&list=RD22i57u2eMDE&index=2
I didn't know what the hell was going on for the first minute... and then all of a sudden I was dying of laughter. 

The best part about these, is that they're definitely done by musicians.  The good ones are really well done!

I'd like to find the real versions of these, especially the Chick Corea ones. Because watching the video and hearing the "shred" version, it becomes difficult to fathom how what they're doing could sound good. I mean, Chick really looks like he's just goofing around up there.
