Holy crap this guy can play! As far as I know, Double Dragon stage 1 was the first game song to really include a guitar solo, even though it sounded utterly horrible on the arcade game’s synths. Now it’s finally done justice, and more. I laughed out loud at that moment in the video too when the solo starts. \m/
Also see his Contra stage 1 song, here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=T5JlGQ5orL8&search=Vertexguy
Just when you thought that the Contra Jungle song had been done to death (and perfection), this guy comes along. And does it more facemeltingly than you could believe.
