Welcome to the August edition of Neal's Young Guns. I was snooping around youtube and searching for young players. So many videos to choose from. Hard to pick just one from a particular individual.
Anyways, here are my five for this month:
The Official Site: shredguitarist.org
Submit your videos here: youtube.com/NealsYoungGuns
1. Jakub Zytecki from Poland: I was originally going to post his first video but thanks to Laurie Monk from truthinshredding.com for this gem.
2. Frano Zivkovic: 5 year old kid! A kid to watch out for in the future. I can barely even remember a few things when I was 5!
3. Elliot Noble: Playing "Flight Of The Bumblebee". Nicely done. When he gets older, I'm sure he will be a scary player!
4. Lucciano Pizzichini: Performing a Santana tune. Personally, I think he sounds better than Carlos! If guided in the right direction, I think he can be a really great player.
5. Kevin Loh: At the age of 10. I've seen some of his other videos when he was younger and they were pretty scary too but MAN this kid has a great feel for the guitar now!
So many young talented kids out there. It's scary! Several of these kids have other videos on youtube so make sure to check them out. Anyways, hope you enjoy these. Until next time!
