Classical Gas by Tommy Emmanuel and that Sweet Guitar Jam with Roger in American Dad

Following is probably one of the coolest guitar videos you'll ever see. It's Classical Gas, originally written and played by Mason Williams, as performed by the incredible Tommy Emmanuel. Get ready to have your socks knocked off:

Pretty freaking awesome, right?!

You may have heard part of this jam before. If, like me, you're a fan of American Dad, then you might remember the scene from the episode Permanent Record Wrecker where Roger (the alien) kicks some major ass in a guitar jam-off. Well, that guitar jam was the same bit played above by Tommy Emmanuel. 

There aren't many videos of that scene to be found online. The best that I found is below, but, oddly, the voice of Roger doesn't sounds right. Still, the guitar is fantastic:

I've been playing guitar for quite some, but I'm definitely not even on a level where I could see Tommy Emmanuel's level of guitar awesomeness with a space telescope. Good stuff.
