That's insane. Have you seen him play blackbird? Check his profile, it's just disturbingly good. :shock:

While this kid is amazing I hate people that see his as much greater than he is because of his age which I find irrelevant

How is it irrelevant?? Consider the physical strength your hands need to play guitar at a high level. At age 11 I could barely hold down a C chord. This kid sounds better than most people who've been playing their whole lives.

Not trying to diss the kid or anything, but in some of his videos he has some taping on his fingers. I'd assume they help him press down the frets easier. But yes, the kid is extremely talented for his age. But it's videos like these that remind me how mediocre (if I can even call myself that) I am.
And they aren't Japanese, but Korean.

maybe he's been playing guitar since he was like, 5. The earlier you start, the better.

I played that kind of music since I was 12 =7

He probably started at a young age, and had dedication. I myself started when I was 8, and I practiced almost every day.

I started at 11 or 12. back then, I really didn't have any trouble with chords, it was the plucking that got me.
