A video featuring a Japanese 8-year-old girl named Li-Sa-X playing Guthrie Govan’s  “Fives” has surfaced the web, and it’s pretty mind-blowing.

The song comes off Govan’s 2006 Erotic Cakes album, and while the girl’s cover is not spot-on, it is remarkable given the fact that she’s only 8, and that the song is incredibly advanced. After all, it is Guthrie Govan.

Watch the tiny shredder play below, and listen to Govan’s own version here.
