Another 30 Shredders in One Solo — From McLaughlin to Di Meola | VIDEO
April 21, 2015
|Ben Higgins is back! We recently posted the British virtuoso’s video
for “30 Shredders in One Solo,” in which he imitates the styles of such
masterful guitarists as Yngwie Malmsteen, Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai,
Slash, Dimebag Darrell, Zakk Wylde, Uli Jon Roth, Paul Gilbert, Jason
Becker, John Petrucci and many others.
In this video, fittingly titled “Another 30 Shredders,” Higgins solos in the styles of Nuno
Bettencourt, Steve Stevens, Reb Beach, John Sykes, Vivian Campbell,
Guthrie Govan, Steve Morse, Eric Johnson, John 5, Herman Li, Warren
DeMartini and several others!
“This track is just a bit of fun I

way by either emulating some of their common phrasing ideas or
referencing well known solos of theirs but not to directly cover or copy
