Rebel plays guitar in Libya war

Bullets flying past, empty bullet shells lie strewn across the street, machine guns blazing, people dying, blood everywhere and a fighter playing guitar. Yes you read that right. A moment that most guitar players can only dream of – Fighting a war with their guitar. This is not about the war in Libya nor is it about politics. It is also not about people giving their lives for their country nor is it about the glory of war. This is about the power of music. If this picture does not leave you speechless, there is little in life that will.

One of their comrades plays the guitar while bullets whiz past. Since this picture surfaced, it has gone viral on social networking websites like Facebook and Twitter.

That guitar doesn't look real though, Im not saying it isn't, but it does look imposed.
