What’s better than listening to one guitarist soloing over a track? Listening to 12 guitarists soloing over a track, of course. And in Pickup Music’s latest video, the online learning platform has assembled a lineup of 12 stellar electric guitar heroes for a collaborative video.

Featuring the likes of Strandberg-toting prog powerhouse Plini and neo-soul sensation Melanie Faye, the rules of the 12-minute video are simple: each guitarist gets the same 20-bar passage to flex their chops and show off their uniquely flavored skills.
