    She`s good. But I would have been more impressed if she was playing a more difficult piece.

    To the people saying it should have been a more difficult piece: Play it. I dare you.
    Please tell me you wouldn`t look that little 8 yr old in the face and say, "Close, but that poo wasn`t hard enough to impress me."

    The music starts before she does, on the taps part on the upper part of the neck, she only tape a few times when it`s more than a few. And when the sweeps start, she is nowhere near as fast as the music is. Try again.

    Here`s the actual song:
    Stratovarius - Stratosphere

    At first I was like, that sounds familiar...WHO THE HELL IS STRATOSPHERE??? Did they mean Stratocaster? That`s not one... Then I googled.

    She`s damn good. She`ll be even better when she`s grown a bit and can reach further and more comfortably on the fretboard.

    Not knocking the girl`s ability to play, but anyone that plays the same song over and over and over again can play it that fast.

    What I don`t see in this video is emotion. She`s not putting any emotion into it. She`s not understanding the music that she`s playing, she`s just repeating what`s she`s probably been repeating for some time.

    If your on here critisizing an 8 year old that is no doubt a million times more talented than you were at that age, then grow the f*ck up! Whether it was perfect or not, whether it was the hardest song in the world or not, that 8 year old kid is talented as hell. Pull your heads out of your asses people.

    "Ok all you haters are obviously guitar players"....

    Nope. Read the comments of the haters more closely. They`re professional masturbators equating playing guitar with playing with themselves.

    Why it`s so amazing is the fact that it`s an 8yr old. Have you seen Toddlers an Tiaras?! You can`t get them to do crap!

    Good parenting here.

    While I know I likely couldn`t play that, and it is impressive for someone her age (It`s not like she`s had that long to be playing guitar)...the video`s assured claim that she`s so much better than whoever is watching is a little overconfident.

    I know that someone who doesn`t play guitar or who doesn`t have a point of reference to judge how skilled someone is can hear something and say "wow, this is amazing", even if it`s just mediocre playing, because again, they have no point of reference. The fact that they call what she`s doing strumming makes them sound inexperienced too. Not that I guess that`s definitively wrong, it just sounds kinda funny.

    Again, this is good, especially for her age, but it`s sure as hell not so good that anyone really should be making claims like the description does.

    Great job, especially from someone who has been only playing for most likely less that four years. You kinda have to qualify any praise of an 8 year old, really. They`re 8 years old. I was barely able to read at 8, much less play guitar.

    @Penguinato23 "The fact that they call what she`s doing strumming makes them sound inexperienced too"

    He also failed at reading comprehension JacobTrue13. "...she makes your guitar strumming look like crap." only infers that YOU are just strumming. It does not describe her play.

    Found this with a quick search while its completely non-scientific you can still see that clearly the majority of respondents do not play ANY musical instruments. I would say its quite EASY to make a claim as in the description when its likely half the people viewing this have never played any instruments much less a guitar.
