Shawn Lane: Shred This Too - special entry!!

As guitar fans may know I was contacted by Diane Lane to ask if she would be able to post a video on behalf of Shawn Lane for the competition.

The conversation goes something like this:

Diane Lane: Can I enter My son Shawn Lane??? Thank you , Diane

Laurie Monk: Diane, I would love you to post a video for Shawn. Thanks for offering.

Diane Lane: Thank You , He would Love that!!!! Peace and Love, Diane

I contacted Willjay, well known keeper of the Shawn Lane flame

Laurie Monk: special thanks to Willjay for posting a video on behalf of Diane Lane... featuring the the towering, late, great, Shawn Lane!

I know that Marco Sfogli and the team of judges are huge fans of Shawn Lane and are very proud to have Shawn Lane feature posthumously in our competition.

So here's a very cool one, featuring an awesome Shawn Lane extended solo.
