Nerdist Podcast Theme on Two Guitars

Yes! Our podcast theme–aka Anamanaguchi’s bouncy song “Jetpack Blues, Sunset Hues” (available on iTunes)–has now been unplugged by guitar sorcerer Matthew Lister! On behalf of the Nerdist cluster I say, “WE APPROVE A LOT”. And the ending was a particularly nice touch. I hereby dub this, “JetPICK Blues” because I like puns and this is my goddamn site.

Also check out his lovely classical and cosplay-y guitar-pretations of the Doctor Who theme and MacGyver for guitar and violin.

    why are people so mean to Chris in these comment threads?

  3. Kennon says:

    I’ll see your guitar Dr. Who theme and raise you a violin Dr. Who theme. Ha! Suck it Hardwick!

    Nicely done! With a little more polish I would definitely buy this tune. Do it!

    Man! That is so cool! LOVE IT! I would SO load that into my massage playlist to use at work. If anyone knows where I can buy it, please let me know in the comment thread. Thanks!

    I know Matt and he is amazing at guitar and a good dude. I would direct Nerdists to this one as well:

  8. Zac says:

    Ha! It’s awesome as made my day. You can use this for those podcasts in very cultured locations.

    Not usual that one associates an ear necklace wiht a charmed life but I’d agree here ^ 😀

    Nice job guys! Great version of the song.

  11. John says:

    That was ultra cool. Well done, well done indeed.

  12. Patti says:

    This is beautiful!! I agree, the burritos were a nice touch. Excellent job, guys!

  13. Eileen says:

    so so trippy it’s like i died and this is playing as i wake up on the other side!

  14. I associate the tune with the gym because I usually listen to the podcast while working out.

    Now I can associate it with a cool afternoon and a mug of green tea as the workday winds down into something more mellow. Very cool!
