      Guys like this always amaze me, the physical ability is amazing, but the musical applications are almost 0. Can you imaging jamming with him?

          Django , Charlie Christian, Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, Herb Ellis, George Benson, Albert King etc. etc. were just plinking around??

            T-Bone Walker was the man. Since then nothing has really happened. Time has stood still and we can all go back and start all over.

              Surely you jest. I believe that in addition to the blues guys Carl Perkins, Jimmy Bryant, Eldon Shamblin, Link Wray, Duane Eddy, Lonnie Mack, Roy Buchanon and Cliff Gallup were harnessing the power of electricity well before Mr. Hendrix.

                      He might be real good someday. If he's 11, I'm impressed, if he's 15, I'm not. I've heard kids in music stores that were better in several ways.

                      So, I'm basically with jazbrokr and deathkoba on this one. 2 very impressive players, btw.


                      There was nothing unmusical about it.
                      If he's 2 handing his fretboard like that, I'm sure playing rhythm isn't a problem for him.
                      And if he's 15, I'm still impressed. 99% of the kids playing guitar today couldn't hold my attention for more than 5 seconds and an eye-roll like this
                      and that's no bull****************.
                      I wish all the critics would post a vid of their best solo effort. I'm sure I'd be amazed for 5 seconds and feel compelled for another of these

                        Ummm ok dude

                        Like I need to prove I can play.

                        Who said he was 15?? And his rhythm is not good when he improvises. There are plenty of 8 year old girls playing suzuki method violin who can play to a metronome. Does it mean that they have "good" time?

                        Oh, one other thing. I would LOVE to see Steve Vai play my stuff. Not a prayer. He is hardly the god you think. I mean no disrespect for Steve. A great player and a big influence for many. He is NOT a jazz player. None. Never. No jazz skillz. Also, I don't care for his blues playing at all. That "For the Love of God" is nice, but not what I would call blues. His timing is not laid back. He is a monster, but in his genre. Don't think he can do it all. He can't. Not many can bridge the great musical divides. I think Scott Henderson crosses them with far more adeptness AND diversity than Vai, btw.

                          We disagree then. I stand by my original statement.

                          Tapping isn't in itself difficult. Just a different approach. To me, playing rhythm guitar well isn't easy and nothing in that vid tells me
                          that he can do that. You are making an assumption that since he can tap, he can play rhythm.

                          And if he's 15, I'm still impressed. 99% of the kids playing guitar today couldn't hold my attention for more than 5 seconds and an eye-roll like this

                          Sorry, I don't have any impressive solo stuff available on the net. I'm trying hard to make interesting, strange and beautiful music with my band.
