Here's a video if anyone is interested.

I kinda thought it would be a little bit more epic, but pretty cool nonetheless. I can imagine it would have been a lot cooler actually being down there with all the guitarists.

Edit: Here's the Official Guiness Video, much more interesting.

Utter chaos.

I wonder why they changed the arrangement and killed the solo?

Because you weren't there to protest and show off.

You can thank my earlier years of Ritchie Blackmore worship for the fact that I know the song note-for-note.

if you could tune into the songs being played through demo amps at every guitar center nationwide, you would hear a LOT more than 1683 people playing smoke on the water
