06. Video: From Vai to Dimebag to Yngwie, Guitarist Imitates 30 Shredders in One Solo (Read the full story here.)
Here's a video of a talented British guitarist named Ben Higgins, who imitates the styles of 30 famous shredders in one guitar solo. Actually, it's 29 famous shredders, and Higgins includes himself as No. 30, which is justified, to be honest.
He starts things off with some Yngwie Malmsteen-style runs, moves into Eddie Van Halen territory and then pays visits to Steve Vai, Slash, Dimebag Darrell, Zakk Wylde, Uli Jon Roth, Paul Gilbert, Jason Becker, John Petrucci and many more.
Higgins even supplies the tabs for the entire solo, and you can access them here.
