This is the best thing you’ll see all day!

In case you’re not aware, I’d like to say upfront that this has been heavily edited and the Facebook uploader Richard Daudé did a brilliant job. I mean, how creative is this? Who’d think you can combine these two iconic guitarists and end up with a pretty cool music? B.B. King and Lucille’s music is simply captivating — from the vibrato to the amazing stylistic elements incorporated in each performance. He’s undeniably one of the greatest blues players that ever lived. Then, there’s the heavy metal guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen who’s fond of the hula hoop stunt. He’s the shred maestro, enough said.
