Hey Joe

Bogdan Zaryn of Polish Radio reports that over 1900 Polish guitarists gathered at the Wroclaw market square in southern Poland to play "Hey Joe", a Jimi Hendrix classic, during the sixth annual "Thanks Jimi Festival".

Event organizer guitarist and music teacher Leszek Cichowski says the festival was just an idea ten years ago during a small music workshop in the town of Zakiew in southwestern Poland where 16 guitar players performed together: "Last year we had in the market square in Wroclaw 1881 guitar players," he says. "So we beat our world record. We had 1951 guitar players and again it’s the best in the world."

Leszek says that putting together such a musical extravaganza is a real exercise in logistics: "All guitar players should be in one place and they should play one song together which is not shorter than five minutes. We performed 'Hey Joe' as a record song."
