For thousands of years humans have been playing guitars, mostly in ill-fated attempts to overcome severe genetic disadvantages and impress members of the opposite sex. Tonight for the Late Movies we'll take a look at a few people who can play the guitar in interesting and unexpected ways.

Simply labeled "Ronnie THE MAN," here is a guitar player from Botswana playing a fantastic tune.

What guitar series would be complete without an homage to Super Mario Bros.? Here is a version of that famous theme played on two guitars...by the same person!

Going the opposite direction, this clip features both Antoine Dufour and Tommy Gauthier performing "Jerry's Breakdown," composed by Jerry Reed, all on a single guitar.

When I was ten years old, I could barely handle a handful of Legos. This ten year old seriously puts me to shame with his U2 playing abilities.

And, yeah, who needs hands anyway?

Drifting is a style of guitar playing where both hands work independently to create layers of sound. Here we have Andy McKee demonstrating this exceptional talent.

Finally tonight: "Over 1000 cuts. 6 hours of guitar tabbing. 1 hour of shooting." This is a stop motion version of Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro" played on acoustic guitar.
