This 12-year-old kid from Rockford can play the guitar better than you.

I'm not going to lie, I'm extremely jealous of people who can play the guitar.

I know, you are saying... Lori, just pick up a guitar and play why don't ya? Well guess what, I tried that and it was a terrible disaster.

It's alright, even though I am terrible at the guitar, that leaves room for guitar greats like Eddie Van Halen, Eric Clapton, Joe Perry, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix and Christopher Ruckman.

What, you've never heard of Christopher Ruckman before?

You can watch him shred on a 1954 Fender Jimi Hendrix Custom Shop Stratocaster at a local guitar shop in Rockford.

Man, Christopher you are awesome! Rock and Roll!
