There are very less guitarists who achieved the things Stevie Ray Vaughan achieved as a guitarist. He was one of the prominent guitarists who revived the blues in the 1980s. Born on October 3, 1954, he was a prodigy and began playing guitar at the age of 7.
And looks like we could have gotten our hands on another SRV.
Age is just a counting factor, and for Taj Farrant, a 9-year-old boy, the guitar is everything. He auditioned for Australia’s Got Talent alongside his chugging Gibson SG.
He auditioned in Australia’s Got Talent 2019 and stunned everyone with his amazing guitar-playing skills. Before this, he was already ‘kind of a big deal’. He stated that he went on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’.
“Ellen saw my Instagram and she said I should have him on! It was good, she’s very funny.”
Before his performance, Shane Jacobson, one of the judges asked Taj what got him into playing the guitar. He explained. “My dad and my pop took me to an ACDC concert two and a half years ago, and I said I want to do that for the rest of my life.”
Taj played iconic riffs of AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. Farrant really resembled the late Stevie Ray Vaughan.
