Guitarist Plays One-Minute Classical Guitar Mashup of Video Game Themes — Video

Evidently, guitarist Chad Neidt posts a new "One Minute Mashup" video the first Monday of pretty much every month.

Here's a good one from a few months ago. It's a medley of popular video game themes—performed on classical guitar. Below, you can see a complete list of the themes he plays in the video.

Beginner classical guitar players, take note of what can be done. 

"I decided to make this a classical guitar rendition because it felt like the right way to do the songs justice," Neidt writes. "I love games."
