I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. I was listening to MAB's over-the-top soloing, and at about 2:17 (on the youtube video I was watching) of No Boundaries, he goes into a classical sounding riff. Does anyone know if this is influenced by any specific classical song? It sounds like something Paganini might have composed, but I'm not sure...

When I first heard the song I thought the same thing but I couldnt figure out what it sounded like.

Well at about 2:30 he does a thing like Paganini's 5th Caprice.

About the 2:17 solo it sorta sounds like Mozart or Beethoven sorta.

Yeah, I can definitely hear the 5th Caprice at 2:30, but I'm still puzzled as to what the 2:17 interlude is. We are talking about the same thing right? After the insane sweeping, he slows down and plays the riff twice before continuing with Paganini-sounding stuff.
