Kid shreds at NAMM

Apologies if it's a repost.

This is that kid that played PG stuff almost flawlessly when he was 8. That whole "8 year old shredder" thing. Seems like he's doing quite well for himself!

True, but to be fair, his articulation is spot on. The squeals and vibrato especially.

Is 4:00 onwards the solo that Nuno Bettencourt plays before Mutha (Don't Wanna Go To School) or just very similar?

I love how the kid just loses himself about 1:01. You can tell he just sooooo into it, really looking forward to see what he does in the future.

I think you're missing the point entirely dude, this isn't about music, it's about amazing dedication to an instrument for someone so young. I posted it to inspire people, I know I sure as hell can't play that and there will be people who are even older that will be inspired by this kid's talent upon viewing.

He may not have any original material, but he doesn't need to have original material to impress me. He's obviously more dedicated than I am and for that he gets my respect.

What happened to Jeff? Funny how he dropped off the radar now that the entire Western world disagrees with his right wing bull.....

Yeah gotta agree with scar I really hate the generic reaction of *OK FINE HES AN AMAZING SHREDDER BUT CAN HE WRITE!?* and vice versa.

It completely misses the point every time. The kid is freaking amazing. <--- period, then look at his age and imagine where his playing will be in 10 years worth of more experience and what he'll be able to write considering the technique he has at his disposal now.

Somehow I imagine that he won't have trouble playing the tunes that pop into his head.

imo, his vibrato is absolutely nothing special. ofc there are no long notes there to determine that for sure, but from what I've heard, they're totally average.
but his technique is like gazillion times better than mine

Yeah his vibrato could be better, but it's not something that takes away from his playing too much.

Well, once this kid start writing stuff, it sure as .... won't be lack of technical facility holding him back. Once he hits puberty, starts having his heart broken by shallow teenage girls, and generally grows up to see how cruel and ....ed-up the world is, he'll have one helluva a "painter's palette" right at his fingertips

or he'll start playing stuff like My Chemical Romance or BFMV

Anton Oparin is really really good. He covers a lot of paganini with ease.

But don't get discouraged guys. There will always be bigger fish. There will always be some kid who sat in his bedroom longer than you and learned to play way harder .... than you etc. It's all about the music you produce. This kid has only done covers/improv solos from what I've seen. And yeah, he might write his own stuff one day, but it wont be like the stuff you make so don't sweat it.

I mean when you get to that point it, is pretty much exploiting music theory to make pseudo-classical shred compositions. Which are cool, I'm a huge fan of stuff like that. But those simple riffs from the less talented guys are what make me tingle the most. Like the riff from Crazy train. lol

i just hope he doesn't burn out, i've seen other videos of kids shredding away at young ages, and looked for them a few years later, and they just got tired of it and quit entirely
