    What does autism have to do with this kid being able to drum a wicked beat?

    The original video states:

    Published on Sep 23, 2012
    "Whirled Beat". Boy (age 10) enjoys exploring the undiscovered, percussive sounds of household appliances. He also owns a Pearl drum kit, has been taking lessons for over a year, but is mainly self-taught in general percussion. His main inspirations are Neil Peart and Buddy Rich.

    Also, there have also been some re-posts of this video on YouTube and other sites containing false information in the title regarding an alleged condition. This rumor first spread due to a misunderstanding by a person who linked to this video a few days ago on reddit.com.

    Just because a young kid is good at something doesn`t make him autistic. Just because some loser reposted the youtube video with a different title doesn`t make him autistic either.

    Very talented at something at a really young age that older people can`t do as well. He`s a witch! What witches don`t exist? Then he`s autistic! That`s the only reasonable explanation of why he is naturally talented at something right?

    He`s not autistic. Do some research first.

    If he was actually autistic this would actually be pretty amazing. Looks like the trolls on this site don`t understand what Autism is.

    So therefore this is nothing special. ALl it is is a normal kid who has been having percussion lessons for over a year.

    Move along.

    "Looks like the trolls on this site don`t understand what Autism is."

    I don`t think you can blame piperfawn considering the video`s title on youtube claims he`s autistic, and the title here is exactly the same as that youtube title.

    Just a kid who was clearly born with musical ability. Not everyone has it but it`s common enough that I don`t think it makes him special. I took to the guitar like a duck to water when I was 10 yrs old but I don`t think it`s anything special, just came to me naturally like drums/percussion to this kid.

    Autism has a huge spectrum of conditions. Some of the most talented and well behaved kids I know are autistic.

    Great display of natural talent with rhythm. I wish my autistic nephew was more musically inclined. He can certainly tell when you`re off key by even a little bit because he will put his hands on his ears and sing it right. But it seems his true calling is art

    musically talented kid is musically talented. does the fact that he`s autistic have anything to do with that? i don`t think so. music (and coincidentally math, because math and music are intertwined) is a gift and here it seems his gift has been realized early in life.

    good for you, drummer boy. i hope to hear your work on the radio some day.

    He`s no Mike Portnoy, but then, neither was Mike Portnoy at his age. Hell, buy him a set of drums!

    The titles for most videos around this place are about as factual as a fox "news" report.

    What an odd thing to videotape. I agree with getting the kid some real drums, starter sets are pretty cheap.
