On the internet it’s all about finding your niche, and Italian musician Andrea Boccarusso has certainly done that.

Having previously made his name by releasing a series of videos where he plays a multitude of riffs from a multitude of different bands, including 50 Iron Maiden Riffs, 50 Metallica Riffs and 100 Metal Riffs, he’s topped the lot by performing 50 consecutive AC/DC riffs for the cameras. What makes his latest venture so impressive is that he’s used the magic of video editing and split-screen technology to perform both Angus and Malcolm Young’s guitar parts at the same time.

Boccarusso started playing guitar at the age of 14, influenced by the likes of ACDC, Guns n’ Roses, Dire Straits and Iron Maiden. He has his own solo industrial rock project, Lock The Basement, which released its debut album - the unfathomably titled Loading Your Personal Twat - in September last year.

Andrea Boccarusso, we salute you.
