Yeah, Camira and evanking are right. Being able to memorize movements and repeat them just means you're nimble and coordinated, but it says nothing about actual musical skill. Actual musical skilled is determined through improvising, original variations, interpretation of pieces, and composition. Since this Carry On Wayward Son sounds pretty generic, I think it's pretty poor interpretation.

Age: Many of my professional musician friends could play more complicated pieces before 10, and by 10 were already learning how to improvise variations. So, she is not all that special musical wise.

holly crap cool. I liked the fake vocals during the quiet part of the song, that really bowled me over.

that was freakin' awesome! though, it was odd to hear so much rocking, while staring at a flower arrangement.

Wow, I almost thought I was listening to Kansas sans vocals. Seriously.

Disclaimer: I am of the same ilk.

She has excellent co-ordination. But it's hard to say how good she is at the 'art' of keyboarding, as after practicing a difficult piece like this relentlessly, it ain't so difficult anymore. So the skill is sometimes just in the patience and practice, and as she wasn't reading the notes, I would say that is the case here.

It's one thing not liking the video. YOu don't like the video, it's boring, whatever. No problem. You have every right on this earth to say "I DRATING HATE THAT VIDEO" or "WOW THIS VIDEO SUX LOLOLOLOL". I will not complain nor whine.

What pisses me off is people who say they can do it much better. If you're so proud of your skills of doing things in videos much better why wasn't it you in the video?

Try it yourself sometime if you thought that was boring or simple.

I had to sign up for this damn message board just so I could say "THAT was AWESOME."

I personally don't know anyone who could do that. It's not the most difficult performance on earth but, hell, that was impressive for a little one!

I can see some of you had questions about how she did it. The beat is pre-programmed; it's just in the place of having a real drum kit and drummer, so don't complain about that. You do have to give her credit for playing three instruments at the same time, though - the bass guitar with her left foot (each pedal is a different note), the organ or piano with her left hand on the middle keyboard, and the electric guitar or piano with her right hand on the upper keyboard. She also adjusted volume with the right pedal and right foot, and sometimes she would leave the volume alone and do some pitch bending with the left pedal and right foot. You heard that mostly during the later guitar solos. Pretty f***ing awesome if you ask me. Try it yourself so

^^ Evanking, please record a video of your 5 year old cousin playing one-note melodies played over each other, and post it on the internet.

Something like that should be shared with the world, no?

Oh, and congratulations on not being a sheep. Still, beauty, as it goes, is in the eye of the beholder.

Who else wants teph2112 to go out, learn how to do this exactly, and post a video of it in exactly three days?

Seriously. Unless you can do it, don't say "It probably isn't too hard."

you people are sheep. i couldnt even finish watching it because it was BORING.

she wasnt even playing the beat, all she did was hit one pedal to make that pre-programmed crap play through. it was just a bunch of one-note melodies played over each other, something my 5-year old cousin can do.

this is barely one step above sitting down on a bench and pressing play on a stereo.

id expect more from the japanese.

"That was cool, but I really don't understand what exactly she was doing to change instrument sounds or to get two instruments at once. Was there a keyboard at her feet? Because it looked like she was wearing shoes, so she couldn't have been playing with her feet..."

Most keyboards have several settings, guitar, organ, ect being some of those. She's probably got it pre-set to change instruments on a time, which would mean she'd have to have her timing perfect.

as for applause, I agree that it was a bit held back, but its not like they didn't care, at least there was some sign of approval. I'm not one to stand in a crowd full of people wildly applauding and whistling, after awhile it just drives me crazy. Just my standpoint.

Also, for the lack of audience response...

Everyone else probably played Chopsticks.. etc etc.
I'd be shocked if someone played that at a piano concert around here (but I would also go nuts clapping and cheering).

I remember when someone became cool because they played an actual instrument, not a plastic guitar.

That girl has talent.

haha, you all dont understand the japanese.

they dont go crazy because thats not very japanese. the polite clapping is. you got to realize that this is a auditorium filled with mothers probably. they most likely done even know this song.

Yeah I agree, she should have gotten a monster response and applause.

I read someone on here talk about being able to play this on Guitar Hero.. lol, this is a bit harder.
