Michael Jackson Guitar Percussion

14-year-old electric guitar prodigy Tina S. returns to blow our minds and eardrums once more with a rendition of Patrick Rondat’s rock and roll tribute to Summer from Vivaldi’s classical opus The Four Seasons.

Guitar Swing Fail

Guitar Swing Fail

Keep your eye on Mason, the guitarist on the right side of the frame. He’s trying to pull off that move where you spin the guitar all the way around your body. Unfortunately, he doesn’t quite seem to have nailed the technique.

Chewbacca Guitar

Chewbacca Guitar

Despite his size, Chewabacca likes to hide out in the most unlikely of places. First we found him in a cabinet door, and now he’s inside this guy’s electric guitar. Chewie, is that you?

Eruption Solo Cover

Watch in awe as 14-year-old Tina S. shreds a bit of Van Halen’s Eruption on her Vigier Excalibur Custom guitar. If Eddie Van Halen ever needs a stand-in, we think she’s got him covered. (Thanks Everyone!)

Speed Guitarist

Speed Guitarist

This street musician shreds like you wouldn’t believe with a finger-blistering performance as his digits go flying across the frets and strings of his acoustic guitar. We’re impressed he doesn’t get his beard caught in the strings.

Dueling Banjos Solo

Dueling Banjos Solo

Dueling Banjos, the song made famous creepy in Deliverance, was meant to be played on two instruments, but Mark Kroos is an overachiever and plays both parts on his double-necked guitar.

Teaspoon Guitarist

Teaspoon Guitarist

South African guitar player Hannes Coetzee plays the spoons – but not in the way you’d expect. Instead of slapping utensils on his knee, he uses his teaspoon to slide-fret his guitar.

Merry Metal Christmas

Merry Metal Christmas

(NSFW: Language) Guitarist Erock returns with another holiday medley – this time shredding some Christmas classics for all to enjoy. Stick around to about 2:50 for a special gift.

Metal Skyfall

Metal Skyfall

We’ve already heard a few great covers of Adele’s powerful James Bond theme song, but none quite as rockin’ as Erock’s metal remix. We’ll have that martini shredded, not stirred.

Acoustic Bond

Acoustic Bond

Greg Johnson of Acoustic Labs plays a haunting, minimal interpretation of 007’s theme, just in time for the release of Skyfall. Check more of Greg’s smooth guitar covers here and here, and here.

Dubstep Guitarist

Dubstep Guitarist

While most dubstep music requires the use of heavily-processed electronic instruments, guitarist Fracionado proves you can totally improve upon the genre with a good old-fashioned electric guitar.

Beats n Strings Eminem Medley

Beats n Strings Eminem Medley

Get a sample of Zach Andrew’s impressive mixture of beatboxing and guitar skills as he runs through Eminem’s hits. Hopefully the real Slim Shady approves. Zach also does Street Fighter tunes!

YouTuber Paolody combined Jason Yang’s violin cover with Roger Lima’s rockin’ rendition of Ramin Djawadi’s stellar Game of Thrones opening theme to create this awesome mega-mix.

One Guitar Cover

One Guitar Cover

The members of Walk Off the Earth have their own instruments, but they only needed one guitar for their cover of Gotye’s Somebody That I Used to Know. We didn’t know Capt. Haddock had a band.

Heavy Metal Halloween

Heavy Metal Halloween

We’re not too sure about his costume skillz, but Eric Calderone (aka 331Erock) sure knows how to shred, as he kicks out this hard-rockin’ medley of Halloween favorites.

iTar iPad Guitar

If funded, Starr Labs iTar will turn your iPad into a fully-functional electronic guitar, complete with MIDI fretboard controller and a music app with virtual stings and a whammy bar.

Blood and Ice

Blood and Ice

While we were more than a little distracted by the silly WinAmp backgrounds (and headband) in Ewan Dobson’s music video, his acoustic guitar shredding completely blew our minds. More music here.

Electric Guitar Movie Medley

Electric Guitar Movie Medley

Guitarist Julien Brasart kicked out one of the best renditions of the Star Wars theme we ever heard. Now he’s back, playing tribute to more classic Hollywood themes on his axe. BTTF-FTW!

Daft Punk Derezzed Guitar Cover

Daft Punk Derezzed Guitar Cover

The technical perfection of Daft Punk’s club hit from TRON:Legacy always got our heads bobbing. That’s probably why Youtube shredder swanthewhitepig’s dead-on cover is so impressive.
