Our regular weekly feature in which we'll share our pick of the guitar wonders You Tube has to offer. This week: Tosin Abasi

This talented American instrumentalist mixes style with a crushing technique based around the same Ibanez RG2228 Prestige eight-string we reviewed back in GIT328.

"Compositionally, eight strings allow you to cover so much ground." He tells sister mag Guitar World, and he's not wrong.

A crisp pound note to anyone who sends in a clip of them headbanging to the music below - but be careful!

Simon Bradley is a guitar and especially rock guitar expert who worked for Guitarist magazine and has in the past contributed to world-leading music and guitar titles like MusicRadar (obviously), Guitarist, Guitar World and Louder. What he doesn't know about Brian May's playing and, especially, the Red Special, isn't worth knowing.
