"I know that some of you may think that I'm doing a lame parody of this song or poking fun at Eddy… But no, actually I'm heartbroken because one of my guitar idols is dead. I did this because nobody else would do it on this instrument and I think that it's somewhat a breakthrough to play this piece on the Stylophone. I know that the last parts are a bit sloppy but seriously it couldn't be done better… So, sorry for some mistakes here and there, have fun watching my tribute to one of the greatest guitar players on the planet.

"Ps, I know that it's probably one of the weirdest tributes to a guitar master but what can I do?

"It's cut into three parts because I had to tune the Stylophones differently for every part of this solo."
