I‘ll admit it. I grew up playing with Legos, Hot Wheels, and Mario Brothers, and whenever an ill-fated Barbie doll crossed my path, I’d give her a makeover until she looked like G.I. Jane.
When I got too old to play with toys – ok, sometimes I still can’t resist playing with Legos – I picked up the guitar and turned it into my lifelong passion. I still, however, have a soft spot for Mario Brothers, and swoon at the sight of old school video games.
No performance represents a greater convergence of my love for Mario Brothers and classical guitar than the one shown in the video below.
So, ladies and gentlemen, indulge in the ultimate form of video game and guitar nerd bombing by watching a brilliant performance of the Super Mario World “Castle Theme Song” by Sam and Steve.
