So great! You must watch it!
This kid is a pure prodigy! Absolutely cool! And I can’t play the guitar, so I have a question: Is this video real? I trully hope that ‘Yes’! That moment you realize nothing you do in music will beat the talent and true gift this child has.
Absolutely mind blowing! Also I can tell this kid loves Tommy Emmanuel! Even Chuck Norris couldn’t do better! So watch it below!
I’m always a little stunned when I see a child who at a very young age shows a high aptitude for music, whether it’s singing or playing a musical instrument. While other kids fiddle with their toys or watch cartoons, these super talented children have already developed a skill that is well beyond their years. It seems impossible that in such a short time on this earth they could have had enough time to learn to play or sing so well.
My own experience with music was nothing like this. As a child, I wanted to learn to play the piano so my parents dutifully signed me up for lessons and even bought me a nice little upright piano for my birthday. Each week I went to lessons and nearly every day I would sit down on the padded bench and run through scales and practice pieces that I hoped to master.
However, I rarely mastered the music. As hard as I tried, and even though I developed some technical skill over time, I’m just not musically talented. I realized, after several years of hardly progressing, that my time was probably better spent doing something else. To this day, I feel sorry for my piano teacher who had to sit with me for an hour every week, watching me struggle and attempting to teach me skills and music that I would most likely never learn.
The young boy in this video is the polar opposite of myself at his age. Feng E plays on the streets of Taipei, Taiwan. He never had weekly lessons; when he showed interest in playing the ukelele, his dad helped to get him started, teaching him the basics. He took it from there and given his young age, it couldn’t have taken long for his impressive talent to begin to show.
