Jaw-Dropping Flamenco Guitar Cover of Megadeth's "Holy Wars"

posted by Cliff Bennett -

Dave Mustaine would be proud of this one -- a solo flamenco guitar cover of one of Megadeth's most popular songs, "Holy Wars...The Punishment Due," from the band's 1990 Rust in Peace album.

Uploaded by Cordoba Guitars, featuring guitarist Ben Woods, the cover is surprisingly true to the thrash roots of the original song, while also emphasizing its melody and classical flavor. This is especially true as Wood's dutifully replicates Marty Friedman's bridge guitar solo to introduce the second half of the song.
