A seven-year-old kid prodigy has taken the internet by storm with his incredible guitar talents that are nothing short of breathtaking.
It is rare to come across little souls who can play classic rock tracks over guitar with no inhibitions. However, some young people have such extraordinary musical skills that it gives you chills. A seven-year-old kid prodigy has taken the internet by storm with his incredible guitar talents. In a video uploaded on Instagram, the little musician can be seen performing the legendary song "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses, and internet users are raving about how well he handled the piece with no assistance at such a tender age.
The child named Leonardo—who goes by @leonardo_fibonaccipatrick2226 on Instagram—has captivated the internet with his renditions of several rock tunes, including "Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits, "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton and "Careless Whisper" by George Michael, among other classic hits by the biggies. His performances would make any listener wonder how a young soul like him managed to learn to play such well-known tunes so skilfully. Netizens were taken aback by the display of art by this little guitarist who would passionately play the instrument with the same enthusiasm in every video shared on his social media account, which is managed by his parents.
In a March 9 video, Leonardo can be seen playing an acoustic guitar to the same beat as the song "Sweet Child O' Mine." The song's first US and UK releases were in 1988. The song "Sweet Child O' Mine" is by the American rock group Guns N' Roses. It is included in their first album, "Appetite for Destruction," and is the only US number-one single for the group. It peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Since the video was released, it has received over 1.2 million views, and Leonardo has more than 226k Instagram followers.

In the breathtaking video, the little boy's miraculous fingers strum the guitar strings as though he was born with superhuman talent. The video rendition of the instrumental play of the iconic rock music was loved by many as everyone was stunned by the amount of talent this little child has. As Leonardo continues playing and vibing with the music, anyone would say that years of fondness for the track and practice brought the boy to play it to its perfection. But looking at his age, netizens couldn’t help but claim that he is indeed a reincarnation of some yesteryear artist.
According to a post shared on the child prodigy's Instagram account, the parents of the children are not musical artists. Neither was the boy forced to learn the instrument. “Leonardo got his first real guitar aged 4 after he kept building a guitar out of his building block toys and pretended to play along with the music. This was completely organic and we have never instigated or forced him to play the guitar,” reads the post. He is indeed a whiz kid and it is well known that there is no stopping for such zealous musicians.
