The young man above is Toby Lee, a 10-year-old boy from Oxfordshire, England. Since the age of 3, when his grandmother gave him his first guitar, Toby has been building his skills and taking lessons. When it comes to the soulful music like you hear him play now, however, Toby is more or less self-taught. This is what makes his cover of B.B. King’s “The Thrill Is Gone” even more impressive.
He’s just a self-taught boy in a tiger-striped onesie absolutely nailing a cover of one of the King of Blues’ hits… nothing about this situation fails to impress. If he’s this talented now, just imagine how great he can be in another 10 years.
