What do you think of when you hear a phrase “guitar Gods”?
We all think of professional guitar masters who’ve dedicated their life to music.
You may think of a guitarist of your favorite band like Angus Young or Slash.
Or…maybe you think of a solo guitarist like Steve Vai?
Either way, most of us will think of a grown up man (or women) who had plenty of time to master their guitar skills and become the masters of their instrument.
You don’t believe me?
Allow me to prove you wrong. I promise that in about a second your jaw will drop after watching these kiddos shred. (spoiler: some of them are not kids anymore)
