I don't know if he was that old. I think that if you can play that well on the guitar though, enough of it comes naturally to the fingers. He didn't make a whole lot of mistakes which tells me his fingers have performed those moves a shit ton. He was looking at his hands on the fretboard, so it's entirely possible that he was just in concentration (possibly because he was on camera) He looked bored to me though. I don't know.

Prodigy? Uh, no. He was sloppy, constantly looking at something (sheet music - a monitor?) and his timing was off. Those are NOT words you would use to describe a "Prodigy".

That's cool that he's playing electric guitar at a young age, but he has a long, long, extra long way to go before being anointed anything other than being a a guitar player.

I wouldn't be calling that "sloppy." That may have been "sloppy" for someone who had been playing for 30 years, but not for someone of that age.

I'm not sure about a prodigy, but it's pretty fuggin' good.

I said it was pretty cool that an 8 year old was so into the guitar. But "prodigy" is term reserved for not only a young, amazing player but a composer as well.

Mozart was composing symphonies at age 3! That's a prodigy.

I don't play. I've always wanted to. Growing up, I had plenty of friends who played at that age and none of them were any good. In my world, that kid is a prodigy. In my world, a prodigy is somebody who is youthful and has an unbelievable talent in their field. I think that kid fits the definition in my world.

I've never heard of the word prodigy being reserved only for composers. Dictionary.com defines it as "a person, esp. a child or young person, having extraordinary talent or ability: a musical prodigy" .

Nitpick - Mozart did not compose symphonies at age 3. He didn't write anything until the age of 5 and those were just two short, easy pieces (which is still impressive).

Sorry, he's not. Not even close.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd? Yes. He was jamming with Stevie Ray when he was 7 and I mean Jamming, not trying to play along with a Zeppelin song.

This kid "might" be good someday. But he's definitely not a prodigy. If he was playing like Steve Vai or EVH or Satriani at that age,then *maybe*. But not from this clip.

I haven't seen clips of those guys. I have seen clips of this kid and he's far and away better than anything I've seen at that age. Most kids that age can't even tie their own shoes, much less strum a frick'n guitar.

You're the 2nd person to comment on my comments so I guess I'm coming across as an asshole or a pretentious prick, or something. It's not my intent. I play a little guitar, but I'm not any good. This kid could outplay me in his sleep. He's awesome. I'm not trying to criticize him at all. I just thought he looked uninterested. I'm probably wrong though, it happens frequently.

Well, I have a little more experience in this arena. I could take you down to Guitar Center on Hollywood Blvd and see 7 year old kids who just shred. I mean shred. Any day of the week. I've seen 7 year olds that can play Eric Johnson's Cliffs of Dover, note for note. I saw Chelsea Constable at the NAMM show in 2000 (when she was 10) playing Ozzy's "Over the Mountain" note for note. And in time. And not sloppily. There's kids all over who can shred (and shred way more than simple Zeppelin riffs).

In the end, it means nothing. There are literally thousands of kids who graduate from the Musician's Institute in Hollywood or the Berkelee School of Music in Boston that are virtuosos on their respective instruments. But unless those kids can write a song, it's not much more than a "parlor trick" for their friends and family. Copying and playing covers note for note doesn't make someone "special" any more than the assistant who types up the latest Stephen King novel.

I hope the kid sticks with it but that video in no way, shape or form suggests that he will have any kind of career in the music business.

Then I'll defer to your expertise as I have none in this field. Thanks for setting me straight. I'm still impressed with the kid. I still want to see kids who are better. But I do believe you and I do think you are more likely to know more about it than me.

Don't get me wrong: I think it's totally cool to see kids like this playing guitar (or any instrument for that matter) and he definitely has *some* talent.

But words like "genius" and "prodigy" are thrown around way too much (I don't just mean on the 'Planet, but in general by parents). I think that's tough on the kids involved because generally, it's just not true.

Here's a brief story: Just last week, I had a child talent in my studio. The girl has been described to me as "Beyonce of Tomorrow". She's been in several big-time movies with hugely established actors and she's well on her way to a very promising film career. Though now, she wants to sing. So, she sang at a soon to be televised awards show. Well, she was awful. Couldn't sing at all during the performance. It was embarrassing.

So as a favor to the show's producers, I was brought in to re-cut all the vocals to the Awards show in my studio. Re-cut, Auto-tuned - you name it. The "new" performances were just sent to the producers today and everyone's signed off on it. So what the American public will see will be far different than what was actually sung. (This happens all the time, BTW).

Moral of the story? They put so pressure on this person that she cracked. And she wasn't ready for this type of performance. It's very difficult to project how a child will play or sing in 5, 10 or 15 years. And words like "prodigy" don't help, especially when they don't apply.

Just let kids be kids and enjoy it while you can.

Hey Dave,

That's totally cool. It shows that you're passionate about music and music performances. No fault in that!

I alway tell people to encourage their children when it comes to the Arts. Painting, music, whatever. It makes life extremely enjoyable to be able to express yourself through music or painting. It doesn't matter if your children become "prodigies" or just hack around on a a few strings or a canvas. It's expression at its finest.

If you have children, don't be bashful or ashamed to join in on the fun. Take art or music lessons with them. It will make it even more memorable for all of you.
