    I want to see him do a mid-song key change. Key changes on the wrong harp are.. not only awkward, but almost impossible.

    Also restringing a harp takes some real muscle. If one string snaps you could get a pretty deep cut.

    Good job to that kid though.
    I hope he continues it.

    Newsflash - just because it`s from Starwars it doesn`t automatically make it good.
    Kid`s got talent from my very limited knowledge of music craft, but the tune is a bit poo.

    @RdDan - We`re sorry to inform you that you are incorrect; this song being from Star Wars automatically makes it good. No worries, you made a common mistake that many people make.

    That kid rocks. What is he like 8 or 9? Not bad!

    @RdDan - LoL. Ok, you`ve got me there. But I hardly consider the new trilogy when I think about Star Wars. The original was perfection, imo. Plus I was talking specifically about the music.

    A Harp ? Seriously !

    Any parent that makes their kid play an instrument like this need to be called for child abuse, Honestly!

    Switch him to piano, Same sound less ass kickings and maybe someday he`ll be the next Billy Joel.

    "What kind of sick sadistic person makes their kid play a harp?"

    Clearly American mentality. Harp is still used and enjoyed in a lot of other countries around the world. The kid rocks it out on the harp. It was funny that it`s bigger than he is.

    ctucker, a student harp can cost anywhere up to around $5,000 and can go up to over $20,000, depending on the quality. The harp is a beautiful instrument which is extremely difficult to master... This kid is awesome!

    What I find amusing is that there is actually a harp music book that has Star Wars music.

    "The Music of Star Wars for the Harp!"

    Also watching harps scares me. They look so heavy and you have to tilt them back against you like that. *shudders*

    To all those people saying the kid is gonna stay a virgin forever or he`s a flamer etc:

    Remember those boys in grade school who took gymnastics that you made fun of? They`re probably doing Parkour now and looking 100 times more badass than you.

    This kid kicks so much ass at playing the Harp that HE makes it look good, and at the risk of sounding like a pedo, if I was single and he was my age and was that good at playing the Harp, that`d totally attract me (and I`m sure other girls) to him. Especially cuz he has the BALLS to say drat everyone else, I`m gonna be different.

    (Disregard the above if it turns out he`s actually a sissy.)

    To all the people who are saying it`s lame to play the harp: He`s wearing a welsh rugby shirt, so I`m assuming he`s Welsh. It`s not lame to play the harp in Wales, it`s like the Welsh national instrument. Harps to the Welsh are like bagpipes to the Scots.
