Watch YouTube Star Stevie T Add a Dragonforce Touch to Ramones, Green Day + Weezer Classics
WWHLASTD? What would Herman Li and Sam Totman do? The Dragonforce duo are known as two of the most nimble guitarists in metal, speeding along the fretboard with rapid fire efficiency and inspiring guitarists everywhere to try to raise their game. One such guitarist is YouTube favorite Stevie T, who took it upon himself to see how the pair's skillset might work within in a variety of classic tracks.
As seen in the video above, Stevie T, aka Steve Terreberry, lets his fingers do the running through songs from artists ranging from rapper Lil' Wayne to country sensation Taylor Swift to golden era icon Louis Armstrong. But there's plenty of rock to examine as well.
Stevie T gives the incredibly catchy "I Wanna Be Sedated" from the Ramones the wailing solo you never knew it needed. Under the Li/Totman touch, Green Day's "Wake Me Up When September Ends" lightens up the maudlin mid-tempo vibe with some lightning quick guitar work. Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Scar Tissue," Weezer's "Beverly Hills" and Led Zeppelin's "Communication Breakdown" get Dragonforce-esque makeovers as well, but perhaps the most interesting interpretation comes when Stevie T uses a slide technique in reworking experimental rockers Sunn O))) and their song "Black Wedding." You can watch the video in full above.
