Watch This Astonishing, One-Man-Band Acoustic Cover of Led Zeppelin’s "Whole Lotta Love"

Italian acoustic guitarist Luca Stricagnoli is a man of many talents, but he has a particular penchant for dazzling re-imaginations of classic hard-rock tunes. 

In his latest video, Stricagnoli executes an absolutely astonishing one-man-band arrangement of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" - incorporating Page, Plant, Jones and Bonham’s individual parts into one, breathtaking whole. 

One particular highlight comes when Stricagnoli brilliantly executes rapid twists of his acoustic's tuning keys to mimic Page’s slide licks in the chorus.

This version of "Whole Lotta Love" is taken from Stricagnoli's new album, Change of Rules. If you're up for a challenge, the acoustic master has also released tablature (opens in new tab) for the arrangement.
