Well, I hadn't seen it, but now I have joined "the throng". I think that some of the comments are even better than he is:
"what song is this btw?" - this may be my favorite ...
"dude your better than hendrix! and i hope you get found! i think you can be up in the top 10-20 guitarists in the world!" - this was pretty good as well, my guess is that a few folks might dispute this astute comment
Yes, he is quite good, who knows how the background was added, and I sure wish him well.
I was in a music store called Lark in the Morning in Seattle with a friend of mine and his son one day. They were looking at Mandolins, I was busy checking to see if they had any decent Digeridoos. As Dave's son was picking on a Mandolin, I said "What good is that if you can't play Stairway to Heaven?". A sales-person overhead this and smiled, and then Dave's son started to play, the whole shop went quiet. Stairway to Heaven is quite interesting when played on a Mandolin .....
Lot's of good folks out there, Youtube opens up a venue for many doesn't it?
That kid certainly has talent. He plays that machine, it doesn't play him. For him to have such talent at this age means he's dedicated to his craft. I wish him well. His playing reminds me of an early Clapton.
