Hello music fans, did you know that the American Country Music Awards awards were last night? Probably not, but today a lot of my guitar aficionado friends are all talking about the show because of a performance by Nick Jonas.
"Nick Jonas?!," you might ask. "The guy from that boy band?!" Why would anybody be talking about him? Well, because he attempted a guitar solo during the performance, and it doesn't take a guitar wiz to realize it wasn't very good:
Update: Jonas has since commented on the matter and it seems he is taking it all in stride:
We're all human.. And shit happens sometimes. But whoever made this… Truly genius. ? pic.twitter.com/QP1ei102MF

The video has traveled quickly in meme circles, with one musician so inspired by the solo, that he had to recreate it himself:
We're sure being on stage in front of thousands watching live and millions watching at home isn't easy, but maybe you should have ditched that solo, Nick?
