9-Year-Old Guitarist Shred Guns N’Roses On ‘Ellen’

Who says kids these days don’t like rock’n’roll?  Certainly not 9-year-old Taj Farrant.

Farrant, who hails from Australia, recently appeared on The Ellen Show, absolutely nailing the guitar solo from “Sweet Child O’ Mine”.  He later told Ellen that he can pick up most songs by ear after just a few tries.

So how does an Australian kids get turned on to rock music?  AC/DC, of course!  Farrant says he picked up the guitar after his dad took him to an AC/DC concert a couple of years ago.

What was the most exciting thing you did at nine years old?  Do you think you could have been a musical prodigy if you’d stuck with those piano lessons?
