We’ve known Brad Paisley is a great guitarist, but we’ve never seen his playing up-close like this before.

This video was posted last June, but we weren’t aware of it until now. In it, Paisley is performing with his band onstage. In the middle of a solo, he grabs a GoPro camera from fan Mike Perlof, who was sitting in the front row at the show, and uses it as a slide, giving us the amazing view of his playing seen in the video below.

As Perlof notes in his YouTube post, “It was the perfect storm because I happened to not have my case on my GoPro which would have made it nearly impossible to play slide guitar with the camera at that angle that Brad got. Not to mention passing the camera without skipping a single note and throwing it back to me perfectly. INSANE!”

You can say that again.
