7-Year-Old Slays at 'Stairway to Heaven'
If there's one thing that makes many amateur guitarists sick to the bone, it's seeing a seven-year-old kid playing damn-near as good at them on a guitar.

Okay, so this seven-year-old prodigy might not beat Jimmy Page in a guitar shootout, but he'd certainly make the old rocker proud. Watch the clip below to see him in action - you might be surprised.

The stranger thing is that no-one knows who this kid is. The video was originally uploaded in 2007, and the original uploader doesn't mention where they found it. By now the young player will be aged around 13, and probably slaying at Battle of the Band contests at high school by now. If anyone has a lead on who it is, be sure to let us at Ultimate Guitar know.

It's not the first time a young musician has made it to the pages of Ultimate Guitar. We've seen youngsters taking on punk rock songs and black metal, but never has someone so young demonstrated so much genuine talent. Rock on!
