[H/T Relix] Guitarist Jared Scharff means business. He’s served as the lead guitarist for Saturday Night Live for over ten years, works as a house guitarist for the New York Rangers, and (perhaps most importantly) is the creator of the online video series, Unnecessary Shredding, which is both incredible and hilarious. In addition to these credentials, Scharff is also a dedicated fan of both Phish and the Allman Brothers Band.Nile Rogers & Jimmy Fallon Perform David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” On SNLRecently, Scharff was in-house at Madison Square Garden—the scene of Phish’s historic thirteen-night residency, Baker’s Dozen, over the summer—to add his own guitar stylings to the in-game entertainment for a New York Rangers hockey game. Yesterday, the SNL guitarist posted a picture of him posted up under the banner commemorating Phish’s Baker’s Dozen residency in a red-and-blue Phish donut sports coat from Sebastien Grey. Regardless, we’re glad to have you, Jared! Also, just for fun, here’s one of our favorites of Scharff’s Unnecessary Shredding videos.
