12-year-old Guitartist takes lead in garage band to deliver perfect Guns N’ Roses cover

January 22nd, 2021

Don’t you miss going to concerts or if you have your band, don’t you miss your gigs?

We absolutely do! Because of the pandemic, we’re no longer allowed to enjoy concerts and gatherings that celebrate music. It’s definitely something that we miss terribly.

Good thing this video that was recorded six years ago had resurfaced. It gave us the vibe that we loved before.

They’re about to bring the 80’s feel back in the 21st century!

This video was about a group of teenage boys performing in an empty garage. They didn’t just perform to some ordinary music, they rocked and rolled to a Guns N’ Roses classic- none other than ‘Sweet Child of Mine’, and the result? A stupendous performance!

How often do we see kids of their age with a ‘Rock and Roll’ taste for music?

It’s something to be proud of. Instead of playing video games, or mobile games, these teens chose to focus on their music, and they’re actually very good at it!

In this video, which went viral six years ago, these teens crashed their parent’s garage and turned it into a mini-concert stage.

We weren’t sure if they just felt like doing it that day or if they were preparing for a school talent show. Whatever it may be, it sure did give the neighborhood a piece of good rock music!

Most of the time, neighbors would consider this kind of music as ‘noise’ and disturbingly unpleasant to the ears. However, this group of boys, in particular, were loved by everyone around them. It was so good that they were able to gather a crowd to watch their casual setup and performance.

Are you ready for an awesome performance?

When the video started, it looked like they had just finished a song. The crowd was roaring and cheering all out loud, it only proves that they’ve witnessed something really good just earlier.

Pretty soon, after a couple of inhales and exhales, the group’s lead guitarist, Stratton James, walked in front and gave the audience a spine-chilling introduction.

With just the first three or five notes of his guitar-plucking, you already know what’s coming!

They’re up to an electrifying Guns N’ Roses classic because ‘Sweet Child of Mine’ was up next.

The people watching them went into a frenzy and all you could hear was their endless screams and cheers. With how they reacted, you’d immediately know that these boys are about to bring the house down with their music.

Their parents must be so proud of them!

After the eye-popping introduction of James from his electric guitar, the lead vocalist then powered everything up with his equally good and raspy voice. These teens must’ve been born in the wrong era, don’t you think so?

They absolutely nailed it from start to finish.

These lads effortlessly slay an all-time favorite rock song. What seemed to be a piece of garage music, eventually turned into a concert.

It was also obvious that though they’re a group, the highlight of their performance was James’ guitar plucking! His fast fingers produced an incredible instrumental part of the song that gave the crowd electrifying energy.

It scored them 6.9 million views on YouTube!

That’s the immense amount of people who’ve viewed their video online. The video is already six years old, but there are still people who have watched it just recently. To no one’s surprise, they’re also amazed by the teens’ talents.

“Man those kids can rock, I hope that they stay together as a band & don’t let nobody break them up. Keep up the good work, very good…”

Who wouldn’t be proud of these kids?
