Hear Dio’s “Rainbow in the Dark” Played on Flamenco Guitar | VIDEO


Flamenco guitarist Ben Woods performs the Dio classic “Rainbow in the Dark” in the video below, one of the many flamenco-metal songs he recorded for his 2013 album Heavy Mellow Volumes I & II.

This arrangement can also be found in his book Metal Classics for Fingerstyle Guitar, published by Hal Leonard.

For all of Woods’ impressive playing in the video, you may find it hard to ignore the man with the ax, visible through the window.

“I had a lot of fun doing this (even though it may not be perfect),” Woods writes. “And yeah, that’s a guy chopping up bodies out the window. I just pretend I don’t see it.”
