wow, saw this ages ago on this website came back to reply. I wish I could do that when I was his age, now I`m learning. It`s a great phenomenon and to all of those who criticised the kid in this video, I must say, even though its probably just off a tab sheet, even though hes just copying something many paople can already do, you should still consider the fact that hes like, what, 8?

yeah. the kid rocks, but it rly does seem to be a `daddy`s/mummy`s lost dreams` job, where the parents make the child learn something in order to fulfill a task they could never complete.

either way, he rocks, and really if you come on here to say `I`m better` or `this sucks`, then you are simply a moron. you think you`re big because you`re better than an 8 year old? good for you, the most I can play on guitar is layla by eric clapton or johnny b Goode - i bet i could learn this fairly easily but the kid is 8 and he`s got it down. jeez...

serenecelene: "it really isn`t that hard. he obviously has good parents who care about him and had him start learning an instrument early."

well have u tried playing it? considering that the kid`s fingers are miniscule it looks pretty f*ckin hard to me.

"nah this kids just proving how easy it really is to play overrated classic rock songs"

You, my friend, are an idiot. You obviously don`t play the guitar coz if u did you`d realise that what you said is the complete opposite. Rock songs nowadays are so much easier to play than classic rock songs. I know this because I actually play the instrument unlike a lot of u who just pass judgement without first knowing wat ure talkin about

That *is* stairway to heaven.

You can hear the lyrics in the background:
"And as we wind on down the road, our shadows longer than our souls, there walks a lady we all know, who shines white light and... something... and if you listen very hard etc etc etc to be a rock and not to roooooollll"

"Baw baw bawawawananana nana wa waaaa waa waa wanaw nananana naaaaaw"

I thought it was pretty good. I can play it on my violin, but I hate my violin. I`m just glad that it was a child of non asian decent. A lot of my friends are asians, so I have nothing against them, but the rest of us need to teach kids how to play violins and pianos like 40 year old men with nothing to do but play them.

hah...he did do a good job. theres no sense in you trying to deny that. so what if it wasnt perfect? he will continue to improve as he gets older. thats what they were meaning when they said "wait til he grows up" you dumbf*cks. hes got discipline.

tho, as a fairly decent guitarist, and an avid and proficient bassist, i know, as other musicians know, that being able to play something is no show of talent until you can apply the musical principals in the composition to something other than just that piece of music. music is creativity.

and ive seen another video of this kid with his sibling and cousin. two of them on guitar and one on mandolin. they are actually knowledgeable in what theyre playing. not playing what they dont understand, but playing the progressions that are supposed to be played because they f*cking know musical theory.

Well for his age that`s certainly impressive but I can`t help but feel that the kid must have some pushy parents. I say this from experience since I first picked up a guitar at about his age or maybe one or two years older after my dad forced me into it.

I enjoy playing the guitar now but I think at the time I hated it, still though that kid`s got a lot of potential, props to him.

1) It *IS* Stairway to Heaven! He just starts near the solo.

"And as we wind on down the road, our shadows longer than our souls!"

2) The kid rules, he looks about 8. His fingers barely reach the top string on the fretboard.

3) I could do anything you fatasses sitting at your computer desks criticizing can do. Only I can do it better. And while spinning on my rooster.

I`ll even prove it soon as you post something that you can do that impresses us.

Guitar`s an interesting instrument in todays society because it can be readily found int he hands of children in first world countries and because it lends itself to easily learning specific songs. The ability to play a single song, no matter how complex the song itself, is not always a good indicator of skill.

That kid is pretty good. I couldn`t do that, but then again I don`t exactly have a guitar and all I can play is smoke on the water (noob song, learnable in half an hour or so). That probably took some time to learn, and Jebler, this isn`t a political debate. Music means more to some people than anything will ever mean to you. Get a life dude.

I was a guitar teacher for many years. My opinion, it`s not spectacular, but it is better then average for a kid his age. If he keeps with it, he will be a very good guitar player when he is older.

He should be proud.

`I`ve been playing for a little over 30 years so I know where this kid is coming from.`

WTF have you been playing for thirty years to think this is ANY good? Sh*tty covers?

`The critics here are the saddest, posing, limp dckest type of player there is.`

No, I refuse to place the kid on a pedestal with true talent, you f*ck. If you want to, that`s your retardedness.

`The thought that someone else might actually do something they think they know a little about scares the crap out of them. Small minded players who will never have half the groove that kid has now.`

You are defending a sh*tty cover ATTEMPT by a player with no style or imagination. F*ck what you think, because it now has the value of less than sh*t.

`Get this idiots- he wasn`t trying to impress you- he was just playing a riff. Fcking limp posers.`

He put this SH*T on the internet as an open invite for criticism, and he probably has that sh*tty tagline about being the best in the world in the original. F*ck

It`s the solo, people say it`s the greatest solo of all time. He did really well on it.

Keep on rocking kid! It really reminds me of when I started playing around his age. Just the way he holds his pick and that look on his face.
He`s gonna grow up to be severely disappointed when he can`t find any musicians that are even remotely capable of reaching his musical potential and ends up going to school for accounting...I made myself sad. =(

Sweetie.

The whole "misanthropic bitch" thing is soooo 90`s.

It`s been done already. You may want to be like her, but no one`s impressed.

The real one is creative, intelligent, has her own website and has interesting things to say.

She`s a graduate journalist. You`re still working nights as a hotel receptionist.

It was pretty plain. I think if he decides when he gets older that this is something he wants to do, he will do very well.

I`m more impressed with his knowledge of sound mixers. He was obviously using one.

He probably would`ve gotten props if the link didn`t try to put him on a pedestal he doesn`t belong on. But once it called the rest of the world losers compared to his sh*tty emulation, he was forced out of his league and out of the territory of `well, he`s good for his age`. They want to let him play with real musicians, then he has to sound like one, not just some f*ck that found a tab sheet.

It`s nice to see a kid that age putting the work in to pull that off.

Talented or not, you need to practice hard to bend the strings, pick the notes, finger the scales, etc.

At his age, he deserves props, not criticism.

He copied a song and didn`t even do that great job on it. Until he can improvise eighties metal and old school blues he is just playing with a guitar. Not PLAYING that motherf*cker like so MANY, MANY PEOPLE actually do.
`Another kid proving how little talent the rest of the world has.`
Seriously, is this what you call talent, while putting the rest of the world down?

And I think the little bastard hit play on a recording after the first few chords. Not sure on that one, though.
