Back in April, we found this video of a seven-year old girl playing ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ that left Slash “speechless.” Now, we have a new video of a boy of the same age playing Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Stairway to Heaven.’
The clip of the unnamed prodigy begins with him playing the suspended chords that introduce the song’s climax. From there he mimics Jimmy Page‘s legendary solo through to the power chords in the “And as we wind on down the road” section before finishing up with the last sustained note before Robert Plant‘s famous last line.
The video was uploaded in 2007, so we don’t know if he’s continued his rocking ways or given up the guitar and taken up a sport in the six years since this was recorded. All we know is that it’s pretty impressive to our ears.
