16 Aug 09 Luckenbach Prepares for Shot at Guitar Record

Email this Post Print this Post


Luckenbach residents like to believe they live in the center of the Universe for guitar players. One week from today, they try to prove it.

Next Sunday, August 23, Luckenbach Texas Events is organizing what they hope will be the world’s largest guitar ensemble. They need 2,000 guitar players in order to break the Guinness Book record. 

The registration fee is $10. Each participant will receive commemorative dog tags, t-shirt and bragging rights. Organizers say the best part of the event is they are supporting American troops and their families.

Participants will perform two songs: This Land Is Your Land, and – of course – the Luckenbach song (Back to the Basics of Love).  Each song must be played for a total of five minutes to qualify for the record.  The event will be recorded by both video and audio.

The party will definitely last more than just 10 minutes, however. The day begins at noon with an acoustic performance on an outdoor stage. At 2pm, the record breakers will assemble on the hill between the creeks (there’s a song title) and perform the songs. Playing will then continue throughout the afternoon.
