Amazing 8-Year Old Drummer Jonah Rocks Will Blow Your Mind and Question Your Talent for Anything [VIDEO]

You might want to snap on a chin strap, because your jaw is about to hit the floor.

Meet Jonah Rocks, an 8-year old drummer who easily falls into the “Prodigy” category. Jonah has been playing drums since he was three, and according to the bio on his official website,┬áhas “never had a lesson…plays songs as he hears them, and how he thinks they should sound. He doesn’t ‘play it like the record’, he plays his way. He doesn’t have to learn how to play a song; he just has to hear it. Jonah spends between 1 – 2 hours per week playing drums.”

We’re not talking about a kid who plays “Mary Had a Little Lamb”, or some other nursery rhyme type song. We’re talking about a kid who rocks some fast songs that would tie most drummer’s arms in knots.

His YouTube channel features at least 100 videos of him covering everything from Foo Fighters and Guns ‘N’ Roses, to Motley Crue and Sum 41. Take a listen to his cover of No Doubt’s “Spiderwebs”.

Pretty awesome, right? That’s nothing. Now watch him take on “Bat Country” from the hard rock/heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold. A group known for their lightening fast style of play and intricate drum tracks. This was the first video I saw from Jonah, and all I could think was, “Wow.”

Jonah’s talent has given him the opportunity to play with Sum 41 during a sound check, sit behind KISS drummer Eric Singer’s kit during a sound check, and share the stage with Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker. Keep an eye on this one, we’re going to hear about him for a long time to come.
