  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!

Here are the rules:
  1. Must be 17 or under for the student. Teachers can be any age of course.
  2. Must be of good quality video.
  3. Must be performed live. (No Overdubs!)
  4. Must be an original solo. (Can be a jazz or classical piece that's within the public domain, but it has to be a unique interpretation) I don't want to hear "Stairway To Heaven" or Metallica solos! (I will accept original backing tracks, soloed over of course).
  5. Only one submission for each student from the parents or teachers a month! If I get bulk, you are disqualified.
  6. Each video submission must have some information in it like name, name and background of the student, who the teacher is and please tell me why this video is so impressive, or what's the point? Right?
  7. No duplicate winners once they have won (but teachers can always submit new students.)
  8. Please no reversed videos! If you play right-handed, I don't want to see someone playing left-handed!
