    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!

    ok, lets see him write a song now. i was bored watching him. not that that it isnt cool for someone so young, but in all honosty, when i listen to music, i dont care what the person looks like or how old they are, but that they have insteresting music, and if thats all that kids learning, hes missing the mark

    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.

    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.

    holy fuck., he plays a lot cleaner than he did before, which was already fucking insane.

    he's incredible, for his age his touch and vibrato are just fucking insane. I'm pretty fucking sure awesome things are going to come from this kid.

    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 :lol:

    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 shit 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 fucked-up the world is, he'll have one helluva a "painter's palette" right at his fingertips :yesway:
