Here's the second most adorable version of Sweet Child O' Mine ever played. Here's the first (previously). Not Cute enough? Here's little Jonah rocking along with some System of a Down. Kids rock.

Young children's hands look like fat little spiders crawling over the guitar strings.

The final link is by far the most charming.

Although now I am wondering how it is Kiss have missed the licensing potential of Mini Kiss.
(Like Devo 2.0 but not as awesome).

Some adult supervision, but Sockweb is fronted by a six-year-old with demands.

To apologize for contributing to the mini-Mini-KISS derail, here's an edition of Friday Face-Offs (by Get Your War On's David Rees, Artisanal Pencil Sharpener) that concludes (scroll to the bottom) with the cutest cover of Iron Maiden's Run to the Hills ever.

I played Sweet Child 'o Mine as a country song with my band once, it sounded great.

Then again everything sounds great as a country song.

I don't know if any of these videos beat this epic cover of Iron Maiden's Flight of Icarus by a big bunch of hollering English school kids. I wish my elementary school had rocked like this. We got stuck with the damn Hokey Pokey.

The little boy playing the drums with that rapt expression of joy+concentration on his face is imho priceless.

Priceless.

Great post. Here's two little kids playing Violet. I think the drummer has been on Kids React.

Gauchos! I love those kids. Their little sister rocks the hardest though. They're bigger now and still rockin out.

I spent much of yesterday watching YouTube videos of kids rock out listening to Tool. This one and to a latter degree this one both capture the way I feel when I listed to that band. Primal and unfettered. Flailing arms and everything.

(I mean seriously, that first kid, Kills. Me.)

I didn't watch the video, but I'm pretty certain that when my wife played Sweet Child O' Mine on her guitar to our new son, at his baby naming, while I held him, that that was the most adorable version ever played. But whoever that is should feel fine about second place.

Holy cats, here's the same young lead guitarist with only, apparently, about a year's more practice.

Learning a skill like that has got to be really healthy for young people. Learning how to learn a skill like that is an amazing gift. Whatever she decides is her calling later in life, if she goes after it with the same dedication it took to build those chops she'll do brilliantly.

If I were Slash this would make me incredibly happy.

In case anyone is considering this a valid statement, it's not even remotely true.

Oh yeah, kids rock
