  • Jason Kertson: Two Guitars, Better Than One

    Jason Kertson: Two Guitars, Better Than One

    About a month ago I saw this Jason Kertson video floating around facebook titled “Boy Plays Two Guitars At Once.” I have to admit, although I’m not one for gimmicks so much, this is something I thought worth posting. Now, could Jason Kertson have accomplished “Drifting”  on one guitar? Well, Andy McKee did so that answers that question. But as far as gaining more YouTube views (this one has 45,000 +)this is something that I know has already been shared […]

  • Timothy Baker: Blackberry Blossom ala Tony

    Timothy Baker: Blackberry Blossom ala Tony

    Here’s young guitarist Timothy Baker (who is also a fine singer, or I should say he’s a fine singer that also plays really good guitar) with the bluegrass standard Blackberry Blossom. Timothy is obviously a fan (and student) of Tony Rice, but with this rendition, hey doesn’t copy note per note Tony’s exact version. One thing that I’ve seen Tony do on the E- B progression is play the notes up the neck which is a lot easier to do […]

    Andreas Varady: A Child Prodigy

    By Miche Archetto: Okay, this is not completely acoustic, but for sure not heavily processed sound and worth watching. Here is Martin Taylor playing with then 13 years old Andreas Varady. Andreas started playing at the age of 4 and released his first album when he was 10, he got the front cover of Guitar Player magazine at the age of 13. Presently he is managed by Quincy Jones.

  • Jimmy Rosenberg and “The Gypsy Kids”

    Jimmy Rosenberg and “The Gypsy Kids”

    By Miche Archetto: Here is Jimmy Rosenberg when he was about 9 years old, playing with Falko Reinhart and Sani van Mullum in a Dutch gipsy camp. They were featured as “The Gipsy Kids” in a documentary of Channel 4 in 1990. The full documentary is available on youtube, but unfortunately only in French and in Dutch. This is what I’ve found about Jimmy on wikipedia : “Joseph (Jimmy) Rosenberg (born 10 April 1980 in Helmond) is a Sinto-Romani guitarist from Netherlands, known for his virtuoso […]

    Fan Shi Long: An Old Man in a Kids Body

    “Int. Gitarren Festival Velbert Juni 2012  Fan Shi Long / China Sieger der Altersgruppe 1 Musikschule Velbert” Okay…. Got to wonder why after a year this super guitar kid from China named Fan Shi Long or Shi Long Fan (I’ll get to that in a moment) only has 1,700 + views on YouTube for this performance? This is hard to understand for me. This kid has got such a wonderful flow.. The timing and tone is just so impeccable here… And […]

  • Ana Vidovic: The Makings of a Virtuoso

    Ana Vidovic: The Makings of a Virtuoso

    By Miche Archetto: This is a very young Ana Vidovic playing “Feste Lariane” by Luigi Mozzani. Even though the piece itself is not virtuosistic, you will agree that Ana mastered already the fretboard of her full-size classical guitar despite her small fingers. I found very impressive the tone and the cleanness of all notes she plays. We have already feature Ana Vidovic before in this video and also in this other one. If you liked this video don’t forget to share it with your […]

  • Sungha Jung Visits Hotel California

    Sungha Jung Visits Hotel California

    Korean guitarist and internet sensation Sungha Jung performs the Eagles “Hotel California” in what I would describe as a nice “peaceful easy feeling” (hey, it is after all and Eagles song). Sungha if you will notice does subtle embellishments rather than a lot of flash. What’s also cool is that he is keeping the strum going throughout and playing the melody along with it- even during the solo section. This video only got 6 million + viewers.. (Only 6 million???)

    Frano Zivkovic: 8 Years Old

    “8yr old kid guitarist Frano Zivkovic plays Tommy Emmanuel’s Halfway Home. From album “Little By Little”, available at http://www.certifiedguitarplayer.com” I have a client in my studio watching me write this post. He just asked the question… “If you closed your eyes would you still post this video?” Good question! Well, to be honest Al, no I wouldn’t. But with eyes open, what makes this amazing is the age of Frano being able to pull this song off, and it’s not so […]

    Gaven Largent: Bluegrass Kid Plays Nashville

    “Just as classical musicians aspire to perform one day at New York’s Carnegie Hall, country and bluegrass musicians dream of playing at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. Thirteen-year-old Gaven Largent will be doing just that next month. VOA’s Susan Logue caught up with him at his home in Winchester, Virginia, and prepared this profile.” We don’t get to see a performance here, just little snippets of Gaven Largent playing some guitar, banjo and dobro.

  • Swan Berger: Natural Talent

    Swan Berger: Natural Talent

    Sometimes you just got to shake your head and wonder how a “kid” is able to play this good… I mean, so I guess when he was 2 he studied and mastered the major scale… Then at 3 he worked out the minors… Then at 4 diminished.. 5 was augmented and arpeggios 6 was alt chord voicings 7 the symmetrical scale (and so on and so fourth).   Swan Berger (who looks about 10 in this video) is playing jazz at […]

  • A Young Richard Smith and Chet Atkins

    A Young Richard Smith and Chet Atkins

    You gotta wonder sometimes how some of these great guitarists were at a young age and just getting started. Well in Richard Smith’s case, we are fortunate enough to have a video of him. Here’s Richard with legendary guitarist Chet Atkins (obviously Richard’s hero) when Richard was just 11 years old. Now of course, Richard didn’t rest upon his natural talents… no no. Cause he’s certainly a lot better now as it is to be expected. But you can definitely hear […]

    Anna Likhacheva: 9 Year Old Virtuoso

    El Colibri – Anna Likhacheva (9 year) “Anna Likhacheva plays in the competition in Moscow (2003) “ You can see the date and yes… that’s some time ago. But playing like that at 9 years old? Absolutely amazing! Well, I’m guessing the discipline that Anna went through is similar to that of those Eastern Block country gymnasts who would train morning, noon and night. Practicing 8 hours a day. Maybe that’s undercutting it. Even I exceeded that when I was […]

  • Swan Berger, Levis Adel Reinhardt and Pierre Manetti “Swing 48″

    This is a tribute concert to Django Reinhardt that occurred  in January 2010 and broadcast by France 2. And would you look at the size of the audience… Not sure that would happen for this type of music in the USA? And would you look how young these kids are!! And for sure it doesn’t hurt when you have the name “Reinhardt” when you are playing Jazz. Here’s how Levis is related to Django according to Vintage Guitar.com: “Levis Adel-Reinhardt […]

    Biréli Lagrène: Where Do You Go From Here?

    Biréli Lagrène (Live In Montreux 1981) {JohnFloyd}: Here’s a solo performance by young Biréli Lagrène, who at the time was only 14 years old. Now I know what you are thinking… Where do you go from here? The answer was (or is) Biréli Lagrène has had a tremendous career which included meeting and collaborating with  “some of the most distinguished jazz musicians on the international scene, such as Stéphane Grappelli, Benny Goodman, and Benny Carter. In 1984, he met Larry Coryell in New York. Later, he was […]

    Grace Sheppard, age 13 Performs Spatter the Dew

    By Jim Weaver: “Just for a lark I searched “Spatter the Dew” on YouTube just now. For 11 yrs only David Russell’s 1998 video showed up. My search just now found over a dozen, including this one from Arizona.” Well, Jim, nice find. Grace Sheppard has amazing abilities at any age, and she’s only 13? Usually these kid virtuoso videos get a lot more views but maybe it’s because it’s classical? For some reason, people just don’t appreciate it as much… […]

With fingers stretching to their limits, this boy whose name BTW is Frano, is doing moves that many experienced guitarists would have a time working out.

  • Smoking Joe Wows Australias Got Talent Show

    Check this kid out. If you’ve never played in a guitar contest before, you could only imagine the nerves of steel this kid has to do what he is doing in front of this audience and judges. For some reason, a contest can make the most comfortable person on stage into a bundle of nerves- (I speak from first hand experience). Here’s a little background on myself with contests: 2 for 3 meaning, won 2 and lost 1 (in other words […]

    15 year old is “Phunkdified” … Ben Lapps

    Here’s a kid named Ben Lapps, performing a Justin King song called Phunkdified. He’s 15 … wow.   What gets me is, it’s obvious that he’s a filler in this concert as the stage crew is setting up for the main act to follow. Follow? I want to see what could be better to follow here… (they should have left the camera rolling).
