Bleedin' Right Before The Lord

Eastwood Guitars make the cool stuff, the funky instruments that came out in the 50s and 60s and sometimes even 70s that showed up in Sears showrooms then on pawn shop walls and now are in the hands of collectors.

That's my take on it, at least. I have never held one in my hands. I'd love to have one, but I don't.

But they're having a contest. Play the riff to Jack Black White's most covered song, "Seven Nation Army", and put it on YouTube, and you can win their version of a '59 Airline Custom.

Makes me think there's trademark issues.

But they don't say it like that. They say Jack. They say E E/G E D C B. Having never tried to pick it up myself, I don't know for sure that's "Seven Nation Army", but it seems pretty close.

So good luck, tell me if you win, folks, and I'll put my "Seven Eastwood Army" video here once I made it.

Dad, it's Jack WHITE. Jack Black is in Tenacious D.

But this is still awesome as all get-out.

Yeah. I realized that while washing dishes.

First I heard 'em, it was at an MTV awards show with Jack Black hosting and Black said "And now, my evil twin, Jack White and the White Stripes!"
