Over the summer, Nandi Bushell shared a drum cover of Muse's 'Hysteria," which got the attention of drummer Dom Howard. Over the weekend, the 10-year-old prodigy shared another cover of the song, this time playing the bass riff.

"Ever since I jammed Hysteria by @muse on drums I wanted to learn the bass line too as it’s so so #awesome!" she tweeted. "It is the HARDEST bass line I have ever learned. I had to concentrate A LOT!"

That concentration paid off, because the whole band responded to her video with nothing but praise. "Absolutely killed it again @Nandi_Bushell So much talent" Muse responded.

Despite the fact Bushell recently participated in a drum battle against Dave Grohl — and won — she was thrilled that Muse watched her video. "Wow wow wow!!!! Thank you so much!!! @muse you guys are AWESOME!!!" she tweeted back at the band.

Watch the cover and see their interaction below.

Though Bushell's covers made her a viral sensation, she's also quite the songwriter. During their epic battle, she shared a song dedicated to Grohl, and last week she released another original called "Gods and Unicorns" with fellow English artist Zuzu. Listen to that song below.
