VIDEO: Electric Guitar Solo National Anthem Impresses Washington Crowd

There was some unusual buzz about Thursday night's pre-game national anthem performance before the Washington-UCLA basketball game. An 11-year old boy named Caspian Coberly played the National Anthem on his electric guitar before Thursday's tipoff at Alaska Airlines Arena.

Coberly is no stranger to the spotlight as he performed the National Anthem earlier at the Key Arena before Gonzaga's game against Arizona in the "Battle in Seattle." You can see Coberly's official Facebook page here.

Here is some of the Twitter reaction:
