One lucky teenager got the opportunity of a lifetime recently when he not only took the stage alongside Bruce Springsteen but also received some priceless guitar tips from the rock legend too.
A natural performer, Nathan Testa confidently accepted an invitation from the Boss to play his 1973 classic “Growing Up” in Brisbane, Australia.
“You know the song? You do? You know it all on guitar? You do? Come on up,” a delighted Springsteen asked Testa.
The pair proceeded to rock the stadium crowd to perfection as Testa, who had a pick at the ready, joined in to play the song on an acoustic guitar.
But before the song was over, Springsteen treated the youngster to a few tips the singer learned along the way. “When I was your age, I got my first guitar. I brought it home. And I realized it wasn’t about how well you played it, it was how good you looked doing it,” Springsteen shared. “So I got in front of the mirror and tried a few different poses.”
