The righteous sounds of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata… on ELECTRIC GUITAR

Horns up for an epic heavy metal finale to Piano Sonata No. 14, thanks to this 17-year-old guitarist.

Beethoven's breathless finale to his Piano Sonata No. 14 is a convincing headbanger of a piece as it is - you can't have arpeggiated semi-quavers like that without things feeling more than a little rocktageous.

Teenage YouTuber Tina S has already given the metal guitar treatment to some classical staples in the past (remember this Vivaldi?), but this time it's all about Beethoven. 

Tina, we approve.
