First attempted in 2013 as an opening act of sorts for Bob Dylan’s performance in Hoboken, the Guitar Bar tried to see just how many people they could get to play along with Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.”
The vibe that evening was palpable and certainly couldn’t be ignored, so it had to be attempted again. Last year’s effort saw equally impressive numbers of participants, and a pretty extensive setlist.
This year promises to be just as amazing, so bring your acoustic instrument and join the Guitar Bar All-Stars THIS THURSDAY at Hoboken’s Sinatra Park for another world record attempt and a massive group performance of Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” and other easy-to-play songs!
The world-record attempt at playing Dylan (G-D-A minor, G-D-C) kicks off at 7:00 sharp. Meanwhile, Finnegan’s will be on hand serving up beer and other refreshments, so stop by a little earlier and get yourself in tune.
SETLIST (order to be determined)
“The Joker” by Steve Miller Band (in G)
“She Still Thinks I Care” by George Jones
“You Never Can Tell” by Chuck Berry
“Love Me Do” by The Beatles
“Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift
“Wagon Wheel” by Old Crow Medicine Show (in G)

Yeah… that’s a lot to take on. If it seems too daunting, just focus on “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door,” then see where the night takes you.
