A new Youtube video has impressed online audiences across Australia, with the extraordinary handspeed of self-taught musician, Quentin Milner aka Bumbin.

The sample video of his guitar playing prowess was filmed in his home town of Balgo in Western Australia, where local children dance around to the electrifying solo of this 'Indigenous Van Halen'.  

Bumbin is a popular figure in the local arts scene, working and volunteering at the Warlayirti Artists Aboriginal Corporation. There, he is able to use the centre's new media facilities like equipment and the recording studio, continuing to master the guitar and other instruments.  

Gordon's friend who uploaded the footage says, "Talent like his lives in these communities. They should be supported not threatened."
