Watch John Petrucci Absolutely Slay The Super Mario Bros. Theme.

John Petrucci

Dream Theater guitarist and all-around cool dude John Petrucci has joined Youtuber FamilyJules in the studio to smash out an absolutely killer cover of the classic Super Mario Bros. theme!

You can see from the video that both John and FamilyJules are having a blast shredding one of the most legendary videogame themes in existence, with FamilyJules (a huge Petrucci fan) explaining in the video description:

"This was a dream come true. Ernie Ball hit me up and asked me if I would like to do a video with John Petrucci this month while he was doing his tour for G3. John is one of my biggest influences of all time, I've been listening to Dream Theater for as long as I can remember and owe so much of my playing ability to his tutorials on YouTube as well as his DVD, Rock Discipline. He is one of my biggest idols of all time and getting to do this with him was immeasurably huge for me. It's so hard to even think of words to describe it here. Thank you again to Ernie Ball for their extreme generosity in giving me this gorgeous guitar and the amazing opportunity to work with John Petrucci! I hope you guys enjoy the Mario theme re-imagined by the greatest prog guitarist of our time."

Well played, guys - we're off to go rescue the princess.
