Giovanni Plays "Warheads" (Extreme)

First of all, a very happy birthday to Nuno Bettencourt who turns 54 today. Bettencourt is best known as the lead guitarist of the rock band Extreme.

Bettencourt is well known for his trademark Washburn N4 guitar developed in collaboration between Bettencourt, Washburn Guitars and the Seattle-based luthier Stephen Davies. This features an interesting neck joint which allows for improved access to the higher notes of the neck.

The solo on the song "Warheads" is a great example of Bettencourt's fine playing, showcased here by Giovanni!
