    God I wish people would stop posting things about `amazing 2-year old playing the drums` or w/e. Age makes very little difference when it comes to ability.

    Not a bad drummer though, shame the song in the background was terrible.

    Umm, no? I guess when you only listen to child music like gaga you really never get to hear good drumming. This little chick is amazing, but she is not the best drummer in the world ffs.

    This is not really that great.

    In fact, if she were in a metal band, she would be considered garbage.

    Example: George Kollias from Nile

    there`s better and younger drummers on the internet. She`s gained attention because of:
    1) Japanese (even if they do something normal, people overplay it and make it sound amazing... because it`s Japan)
    2) Child - great, a talented child.. it`s happened before and will happen again.

    But she is fairly talented, ill give her that

    Do i sense some jealousy around here? How sad.

    That song isn`t really great at showing of skill`s anyway. Maybe her goal wasn`t to impress a bunch of people on the internet, but to play a song she liked?

    She`s doing everything right, but the song doesn`t allow for very impressive play.

    I wish I had a set like that when I was that age let alone now. Yeah, I could play all that now but not when I was thirteen. Oh and don`t play in a skirt, please. Good stuff, but she needs to use that double bass pedal for more than a second.

    @Baconeater - agreed. Definitely more double pedal needed...

    Ok... She`s good. Not amazing, but certainly competent. She uses pretty basic rudiments, albeit at speed. She`s got the bounce of the drums down pretty well, as evidenced with her snare work at about 3:20. Kit is amazing, and those K`s are worth their weight in gold - and they sound it.

    On top of that, the song definitely doesn`t showcase much.

    America has Tyler Hudson, amongst a whole list of others who are amazing, and I`m guessing that someone else referred to him: www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYIQMG0MBJc
