On the telly: Watch Ty Segall perform ‘Break A Guitar’ on Seth Myers

Watch Ty Segall perform ‘Break A Guitar’ on Seth Myers

He wore a cape but did he actually break a guitar?

A couple of weeks ago Ty Segall released his new self-titled album (his second one to date) and recently he brought it to ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’.

To say that his performance of ‘Break A Guitar’ was something special would be a little bit of an understatement. Not only did he completely shred and mesmerise everyone with his guitar skills, but his stage attire was epic too. He appeared wearing a fringed cowboy suit and a cape (yes, a cape!) which had an upside cross, flowers and silhouettes of naked ladies on it. In a nutshell, he nailed it.

But the question on everyone’s lips is: did Ty actually break a guitar? No, he didn’t, but at the speed he plays he’ll probably end up breaking one soon.
