Guitar prodigy 'first performed live at age of three'
An electric guitar prodigy gave his first live performance at just three years of age.
Chris Cooley, who is now nine, first started to play the guitar at the age of two after watching Fleetwood Mac's concert video The Dance and asking his parents to get him an instrument.
One year later, he gave an impromptu performance of Go Insane, a song which featured on The Dance, at the Orange County Fair in California, reports the Little Falls Times.
As well as continuing to work hard at mastering the guitar since then, Chris has also learned to play the drums, harmonica, bongos and organ.
"I want to keep at it and be a professional guitarist. That's what I'm going for," he said.
