World’s Largest Guitar Band Sets Record

More than 520 serious and would-be guitar players gathered in Portland, Oregon Sunday to set a record for Guinness World Records and raise funds for a nonprofit organization for the homeless.

The massed guitarists strummed Woody and Arlo Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land” in the key of G for an hour, led by a band of amplified musicians from a local music store.

Participants wore lyrics and chord guides on the backs of their shirts to aid the players behind them.
