WATCH: This guitarist's version of The Gorillaz is amazing on so many levels

An Italian guitarist has done a seriously impressive cover of one of the Gorillaz most famous songs.

Using only a modified acoustic guitar, 25 year-old Lucas Stricagonoli breathed new life into the track Feel Good Inc, from the band’s album “Demon Days”.  Stricagnoli, born and raised in Italy, is an acoustic guitarist known for his unique style and innovative playing techniques.

His music videos have garnered over 60 million views in total and he’s currently embarking on a European tour.

It hasn’t always been easy though - Stricagnoli went from playing hours a day to completely abandoning the instrument for more than three years in order to dedicate himself to judo.

He began making videos, and shortly after was signed by Candyrat Records, rekindling his fire for his number 1 passion.
