It’s always fun to hear fresh acoustic interpretations of songs. But there’s something about covering Iron Maiden acoustically that just seems to work. Take this classical guitar version of “Fear of the Dark” from Thomas Zwijsen.

Even as the sole performer on stage, his fluid chops take the song to new heights. (And the video is pretty hilarious too!)
