7-Year-Old Girl Playing ‘G n R’ on Guitar Leaves ‘Slash’ Speechless [VIDEO]

It may be time to really think about a “Rock School” with all of these talented kids Earlier this month we saw a six-year-old drumming along to Van Halen‘s ‘Hot for Teacher.’ and now we have a seven-year-old girl playing Slash‘s guitar part on Guns N’ Roses‘ ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine.’

The video was brought to our attention by Slash, who got it from Leslie West of Mountain. “So cool. I’m speechless,” the guitarist tweeted, while forwarding a link to an MSN piece about the girl. Her name is Zoe Thomson, and the clip was recorded three years ago, when she was only seven, but only posted on April 11. She is currently gigging as lead guitarist in a group called the Mini Band, which is comprised of similarly aged rockers.

 

Thomson, now 10, has already become a bit of a sensation in her native UK, where last year she was the subject of a news story (embedded below) that featured members of Metallica praising the Mini Band while watching them play.

You can see more of Thomson’s videos on her YouTube channel.
