We've got a new exclusive shred video to melt your brain stems. We invited Staind / Saint Asonia guitarist Mike Mushok over to our studio to record a solo for us, and the man did not disappoint.

Mushok may not always get to show off his chops in his hit-making rock bands, but if you've never seen him rock Van Halen's "Eruption" at a live Staind show, you may be surprised by his talents.

When we asked Mike to shred for us, he actually worked out a whole piece, adding in some improv to the skeleton as he went along. Beyond blazing the entire length of his fretboard with precise speed, Mike piles on a sweet lead and a bunch of swift sweeps, so be sure to keep your eyes from closing.

Watch this exclusive shred from Staind / Saint Asonia's Mike Mushok in the clip above. And be sure to catch Saint Asonia on tour this summer and fall. For dates and tickets, click here. The band's self-titled debut is available at iTunes.
