No Big Deal, Just a Dude Shredding 50 Classic Led Zeppelin Riffs in a Row: Watch

Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin performs live onstage at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 7, 1977.

Andrea Boccarusso has all the jams.

If you need a little Led for the head, guitarist Andrea Boccarusso has the cure for what ails ya. The super-chill guitarist's latest anthology of rock classics smashes 50 classic Led Zeppelin riffs into a mega-medley that ranges from "Good Times Bad Times" from the band's self-titled 1969 debut, to "Black Dog" and, of course, "Stairway to Heaven" from Led Zeppelin IV, to "In the Evening" from their 1979 swan song, In Through the Out Door.

Along the way, Boccarusso switches back and forth between acoustic and electric guitars to (and sometimes both at once) to play brief instrumental versions such beloved tracks as "Trampled Under Foot," "Dancing Days," "No Quarter," Gallows Pole," "When the Levee Breaks," "Dazed and Confused" and "In My Time of Dying." As Louder Sound points out, it's not the first time Boccarusso has shown off his prodigious guitar skills. 

IN 2017 he unleashed a similar video featuring 50 classic AC/DC riffs, following up with similar runs through the music of Iron Maiden, Metallica and 100 great metal solos.
