Donovan Dwyer is all of 8 years old — but he already plays guitar better than half of the “stars” on the pop charts. And this quart-sized Clapton plays a show at the Black Horse Pub in Park Slope every Wednesday night — and after you watch this stunning video of the pre-hormonal Hendrix, you’ll be heading out to that bar immediately. Reporter extraordinaire Joe Anuta brings you all the action from this underage axman.

Reasonable discourse

Matt Dwyer from Park Slope says:
You guys are great to cover this story. Wanted to let all interested know that the weekly Wednesday session is open for any musicians,singers to get up and perform with the band. It is a very colaborative environment, the musicians hosting the open jam are all seasoned pros. Great to meet you Joe, hope to see you later this evening...

Too much talking heads; it appeared you were ridiculing the little guy!
