Many of you may/may not know about this young prodigy, but I’m going to tell you anyways. Sungha Jung is playing the acoustic guitar since he was 5 years old, and he recorded his very first acoustical cover when he was 8. The first song? ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ by The Beatles. This kid has got EXCEPTIONAL talent. I just watched, mesmerized by how effortlessly he played the guitar.. He’s made some amazing cover versions, but the most amazing piece (according to me) was his cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘The Boxer’..

Just switch on the video, watch the kid do his magic and sit there slack-jawed. After the first time, hit replay and close your eyes and feel the music flow through you.. It’s absolutely soul stirring! I’m sure Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel would be very proud!

*NOTE* – Sungha Jung performed this song when he was 13, and he’s almost 18 now. I urge you to go check out his Youtube channel: jwc
