Mike Birbiglia is the guitar guy at the party. (4:15)

AND-- I JUST-- YOU KNOW I HAD A LOT OF--

- [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]- THANKS--

YOU KNOW A LOT OFTIME TO KILL IN HOTELS.

I'M JUST A BEGINNER, SO I'M NOT VERY GOOD.

BUT I LOVE MUSIC.LIKE SOMETIMES WHEN I'M DRIVING,

I'LL LISTENTO THE RADIO FOR HOURS.

AND I'LL LISTEN TO CHRISTIAN ROCK BY MISTAKE,

BECAUSE IT ALWAYS STARTS OUT AS LIKE A BON JOVI BALLAD.

- YOU KNOW? - [LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

IT'LL BE LIKE,

♪ I WOKE UP IN THE MORNING

♪ AND I GOT MYSELF SOME OATMEAL ♪

♪ AND I PUT SOMERAISINS ON IT ♪

♪ AND CHRIST IS GOD

♪ CHRIST IS GODGOD, GOD, GOD ♪

[LAUGHTER, CHEERS & APPLAUSE]

AND I'M LIKE,"WHAT ABOUT THE OATMEAL?

I THOUGHT THIS WAS THE OATMEAL SONG."

I LOVE PLAYING GUITAR.

BUT I THINK THERE'S LIKE A DANGER

IN PLAYING GUITAR TOO MUCH.

LIKE THERE'S ALWAYS THAT GUY WHO JUST SHOWS UP AT THE PARTY

AND JUST STARTS PLAYINGGUITAR FOR NO REASON

AND YOU'RE LIKE,"COULD YOU NOT DO THAT?"

'CAUSE THAT-- EVERYONE KNOWS HAS MOTIVATION FOR DOING IT.

AND SO I WROTE A SONG THIS YEAR JUST FOR THAT GUY.

[CHEERS, WHISTLES & APPLAUSE]

AND IT'S CALLED, "GUITAR GUY AT THE PARTY."
