@jonswan12 - I think you missed my point. Show me where I said I was "unimpressed" and I'll gladly post a video of myself playing anything you want.

My first comment was pointing out that people who have never touched a guitar would be way more impressed than someone who has been playing for X amount of time. No where did I say that I was "unimpressed." I also said, "It still is pretty damn cool though to see such a young kid who has an attention span long enough to get to that level. To me, that`s what`s amazing about this!"

My second comment is pointing out that it is, in fact, true that with enough practice it`s not as hard as it appears at first. Do you not agree with that? Once again, nothing in that comment was hinting at being "unimpressed."

Maybe you should try to not read into comments made by people on the internet who you don`t even know and quit whining.

@whodat6484

I've been playing the guitar for 17 years...I think you missed my point. Obviously, if you practice enough you can play like that. My point was that to be unimpressed is ridiculous. That`s like saying, Michael Jordan is good at basketball but I`m not impressed because if I practiced enough I can be just as good. So let me ask you this: You`ve been playing guitar for 24 years? Post a video of you playing what she just played and I`ll eat crow. I`m sure you can just play it by ear because it`s just scales and arpeggios.

@5Cats - Close, as far as having or not having talent you have to have something there. I've noticed some people just kind of have an ear for it and take to the guitar (or any instrument) like a fish to water, others don`t. My siblings are a perfect example, I picked up a guitar and a got a book to learn a few chords and scales and then just taught myself the rest. I had only one formal lesson, which I walked out of after I told the instructor I wasn`t there to learn how to play Mary Had a Little Lamb or f*cking Jingle Bells. I then taught myself to play by ear and by watching other guitarists I looked up to. I tried teaching both of my brothers and neither of them could do it no matter how hard they tried, they had absolutely no musical ability whatsoever.

@WhoDat: I did a little thinking and came up with:
3 Keys To Playing Guitar:
#1 Get a guitar
#2 Practice, practice, practice
#3 Have a little talent (optional)

I met a guy who taught himself how to play ONE tune on piano (Canadian Rag). He'd broken his leg one winter (in PRE-internet days) and was so bored he simple practiced that one tune for 2 months until it was ingrained in his "body memory"...

This is not really talent. Anybody can shred.

So, when can we expect you to post YOUR vid?
