Here's a funny little thing that's been circulating the guitar domain these days - footage of late guitar great BB King shredding in style of six-string virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen.
The footage is of course fake and heavily - and masterfully - edited. It's a work of Richard Daudé, who proudly shared this "amazing rare footage!"
The video combines BB's performance at the Montreux festival in 1993 with some neo-classical shredding vibe. It's done very skilfully and bound to give a lot of folks out there at least a chuckle.
The reactions range from full-on rage comments like "shame on who ever posted this fake!! It's dishonering the King of Blues, almost blasphemic! take that crap off here!!!" to more lighthearted "I don't understand why they take the camera away at the shreddiest moment."
Anyhow, you can check out BB shredding his trusty Lucille, along with the original footage from the event right below.
