Muse’s Matt Bellamy gifted Nandi Bushell one of his signature guitars
The 10-year-old musician is building up quite the collection of awesome instruments now, having also received a Soul Power Fender Stratocaster from Tom Morello last year following a cover of Rage Against The Machine’s Guerilla Radio.
Her latest gift arrives after a great rendition of Muse’s classic Plug In Baby, with Matt acknowledging the cover in a letter accompanying the new guitar. “Hi Nandi, love the new covers,” he writes. “Thought you might like to perform some on my signature model. Best wishes, from Matt and the guitar team.” Awwww.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you Matt Bellamy for giving me your signature guitar!” says Nandi in the video’s description. “I love Muse and hope to jam with you, Dom and Chris one day, too.”

Nandi previously called her Plug In Baby video “one of my most challenging covers so far”.
“The guitar and bass are so fast I really had to practice a lot to get my playing up to speed,” she said. “Everything you hear is me. No backing tracks. I recorded each track using Logic Pro. This is my third Muse cover now. I want to be able to play like all three members of Muse: Matt Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard.”
Muse join Lewis Capaldi, Lionel Richie, Kasabian and Pete Tong as the headliners of next year’s Isle Of Wight Festival.
YUNGBLUD will be taking his Life On Mars tour to North America early next year with support from Palaye Royale, Charlotte Sands, poutyface and UPSAHL.
