The toddler’s drum covers of songs by Blur and Guns ‘n’ Roses prove he’s a natural rock star, showing perfect execution of every beat in the songs he covered. Though the boy can barely reach the bass drum’s pedal, the young percussionist has played a wide variety of tunes ranging from Blur’s “Song 2” and Guns ‘n’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine.”

YouTube sensation

Despite his young age, he’s already a YouTube sensation. His cover of the GnR hit song has already reached over 500,000 views. His variety in genre also makes him a fan favorite, because he can play songs from metal band System of A Down to the pop tunes of Bruno Mars.

Barroga began playing the drums in public at age three. Last year, he joined a competition in a national talent contest in the UK with a chance of playing for the diamond jubilee of the Queen.
