Ben Woods: Heavy Metal Flamenco

Heavy Metal Flamenco? Is there such a thing?

According to Ben Woods, there is.

Blane Ebersold over at our sister site located this video and sent this in. At first I though… no … can’t be…

But it’s true… In this video, guitarist Ben Woods has arranged a Flamenco interpretation of the heavy metal classic “I am a Viking” by Yngwie Malmsteen.

But it doesn’t stop there… Ben is also working on notation and tablature for many Metal Classics on solo Spanish guitar which will be released soon. So for you metal lovers that play classical guitar, here’s an opportunity to learn some classics that are arranged just for you.

So now, what do I have to say about Ben’s playing?

How about great….
