His incredible guitar talents are nothing short of breathtaking.
Some young people have such extraordinary musical skills that it gives you chills. A seven-year-old kid prodigy that has taken the internet by storm with his incredible guitar talents falls into that category. 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 the young boy handled the piece with no assistance.
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.," included in Guns N' Roses' 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. As Leonardo continues to seamlessly play and vibe with the music, 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, his parents aren't musical artists. “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.
