Friday Fun: Shredding Parodies
Today we posted the top 10 guitar shredders, as voted by UG readers.

And while shredding is totally bad--s, it's really about the attitude. Attitude that doesn't need talent. Or at least, that's what you'd expect after watching the following videos.

Some creative YouTube users have overdubbed videos of classic guitarists with alternative audio, making for some of the funniest videos we've seen all year.

Here's a few of our favorite fake-shredding videos that we came across while writing the official top 10 shredders post. If you know of any other funny ones, make sure you share the YouTube link to them in the comments for some extra comedy relief.

Are you ready? (Please note: tabs unavailable for the following songs).

Joe Satriani SHREDS!

Yngwie Malmsteen SHREDS with STRINGS!

Steve Vai SHREDS TWO GUITARS!

Paco DeLucia SHREDS in SPANISH!

Eddie Van Halen SHREDS with BIG HAIR!
