Four-year old drummer a hit on YouTube

A four-year-old Swedish boy has become a hit on YouTube. The budding rock star is creating quite a stir with his drumming skills.

Over 2,000 people have seen four-year-old Jonathan Nicklagård from Vadstena play the drums to a hit by Swedish troubadour Lars Winnerbäck on the internet site YouTube.

Jonathan is reported to have received his little red drum set as a present from his parents for Christmas and despite his lack of years he is able to keep rhythm and loves playing fast on his snare drum. Jonathan admitted to local newspaper Motala-Vadstena Tidning that he had not yet mastered playing with his feet, pointing to his redundant bass drum.

The budding rock star says although playing the drums makes him "so terrifically happy" sometimes he gets tired of rock n' roll and likes to play with his pirate ship instead.
