Ben Higgins is a very talented British guitarist. Not only does he have a style all his own—he can pull off uncanny imitations of just about any guitarist you can think of.

In the video below, Higgins imitates the styles of 30 famous shredders in one guitar solo. Actually, it's 29 famous shredders, plus Higgins himself. Which seems fair, all things considered.

Ben gets things started with some Yngwie Malmsteen-style runs, moves into Eddie Van Halen territory and then pays homage to Steve Vai, Slash, Dimebag Darrell, Zakk Wylde, Uli Jon Roth, Paul Gilbert, Jason Becker, John Petrucci and many others.

But wait: there’s more!

Higgins then takes you through analyses and demonstrations of each solo performed slowly and with onscreen tab.
