Anyone who’s ever set foot in the wide world of YouTube knows violin electronica sensation Lindsey Stirling. You might even be one of her 9 million subscribers. But it’s unlikely that you’ve ever heard one of her songs covered on shred metal guitar – until now! Jason Richardson posted this cover of her song “The Arena” today, and it’s pretty stinkin’ impressive (as most things he plays are). He even matches her vibrato and phrasing pretty much identically!

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
