I started playing guitar in high school. I really only learned enough so I could write songs. I always wanted to play like Eddie Van Halen or Joe Satriani or Eric Johnson, but I was okay with the fact that it would probably never happen. The kid in this video will be turning away dates to the prom, that's for sure.

If you're a guitar geek like me, you know all about the talents of Eric Johnson and the legendary status of his song 'Cliffs of Dover.' At a high school talent show, this kid nails it. Here's a video of Eric Johnson performing it.

And here's the talent show. Amazing!
