Must-See Video: Kids playing guitar

These kids should be doing their homework. On second thought, let 'em play guitar!

MusicRadar prides itself in exposing you to the best new musical talent out there. But we admit, we've never seen anything like these five prodigies that have us flat-out stunned.

We can't say we know much about these amazing North Korean kids, other than the fact that they range in age from four to six, and they play classical guitar in unison with the kind of precision (and spirit!) that would make musicians 40 years their senior green with envy.

Imagine how far these brilliant young virtuosos will go one day. We have a feeling we haven't seen the last of this fabulous quintet. Bravo!

Joe is a freelance journalist who has, over the past few decades, interviewed hundreds of guitarists for Guitar WorldGuitar PlayerMusicRadar and Classic Rock. He is also a former editor of Guitar World, contributing writer for Guitar Aficionado and VP of A&R for Island Records. He’s an enthusiastic guitarist, but he’s nowhere near the likes of the people he interviews. Surprisingly, his skills are more suited to the drums. If you need a drummer for your Beatles tribute band, look him up.
