Man. Chops, great phrasing, good taste... I can see some Wes Montgomery in there, with those octaves, some Jimmy Bruno, some Charlie Christian, some Joe Pass, you name it. This kid is really a fuckin' fan of jazz, I tell you.

Just awesome.

Another amazing thing is how little he looks at the fretboard. It took me a long time to be confident enough to play without my eyes on my hands hitting the notes. This kid is a seasoned player before puberty. Incredible.

I'd got playing without looking down within a year of playing, but thats because I spent a lot of my playing time in front of TVs and computers, so it was easier to not look at the guitar at this point :)

Good fucking lord!!! The thing that impresses me is that he clearly feels the music. A lot of kid guitarists that you see on YouTube are just sort of trying to play the notes in the right order, much like any of us did at that age. But this kid, he's actually inside the music. He also plays with space, and doesn't just put up a wall of notes.

He's going to be scary when he grows up, assuming he doesn't get bored of being so good by then. :lol:

I like the fact that even though he is playing in front of people, he is obviously trying new things and seeing how it goes. You can clearly see and hear times where what he did just didn't gel with the music and instead of seeing that as a downside, he just kept on truckin'.

If all of us got to jam with lots of older, better people at that age, i'm sure we all would have been more advanced for our ages too. I envy that kid having those chances so early! I did have the chance to jam with lots of people that were way better than me but not until i was 16 or so.

I was thinking the same thing. There are some obvious clams in there, but that is because the kid is actually improving. His command of the instrument and several jazz styles would be impressive if he was in his fifties.

That's the true spirit of jazz right there.
