Watch This Amazing Classical Guitar Performance of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck"

We recently dug up this amazing fingerstyle classical-guitar performance of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" by U.K. guitarist Ash Wainman.

Some of you might remember Luca Stricagnoli's recent acoustic guitar arrangement of this AC/DC classic from 1990; Wainman's version is essentially a classical-guitar version of that. Beginner classical guitar players, take note. 

For more information and videos, be sure to follow Wainman on Facebook right here.

From 1998 to 2014, he was one third of Mister Neutron, an instrumental rock act that toured the universe and elsewhere and released three albums via Austin-based Deep Eddy Records. These days he performs with several New York City-area bands and can often be spotted with one of his many, many, many B-bender-equipped guitars. In past lives he was GW’s managing editor and online managing editor – and he still can’t believe he got to write the liner notes for the latest SRV box set.
