Beautiful guitar music from South Korean tween will blow your mind

When a thirteen-year-old picks up a guitar and plays a song, what do you expect? Clumsy fumbling? Maybe mild competence with the occasional touch of style? yeah, us too. That's why this clip is so mind blowing. The kid playing is Trace Bundy protege Sungha Jung, a thirteen-year-old wunderkind from South Korea, and the tune he's playing is his own composition.

If you need to feel worse about your own accomplishments, he's also only been playing for three years... Pretty damn impressive. Oh, he also does covers, too! Below, hear his take on the Bon Jovi classic "Livin' On a Prayer"
