As of recently, someone stumbled across a little kid performing the Metallica song “Master of Puppets” in a public space, and they could not get over the kid’s guitar skills. Per the caption associated with the TikTok video featuring the kid playing the Metallica track:
“Out in Cardiff and saw a kid plug in his #paulgilbert signature and thought I’d stick around. Did not expect to stay there with my jaw on the floor while he hammered out Master of Puppets flawlessly!”
You can check out this video for yourself below and witness this little dude’s badass guitar skills! However, we are not the only folks impressed by this little guy’s skills, because Metallica themselves are impressed as well!
The Metallica TikTok account apparently caught wind of this performance and provided the kid some praise for their skills! In the comments section associated with this video, if you scroll down far enough, you will find a comment from the Metallica TikTok account. The band account replied to the video, providing a double devil horns emoji.
This little dude’s performance reminds us of another lone guitarist who took to the streets to perform some metal for the masses. Ruslan Malyshev runs a YouTube channel where he will take to the streets with his guitar and play random metal songs really loud in public; one video of his we really enjoy is his performance of the Slipknot song “Sic.” Ruslan travels to various public spaces, playing the Slipknot song out in the open.
