Now before you start...I don't know SQUAT about playing guitar. I found this kid and if it's him playing, all I can say is Good Christ, is this kid DAMN good! It's kinda Queen-esque but still able to be listened to....

...but I don't know if it's actually him playing so...you judge...

Oh....and make sure to listen to more than 60 seconds :dodgy:

Very impressive, my fingers were never that nimble. It sounds like the music was mixed over the video but I'd say he was definitely hitting the notes.

Yngwie Malmsteen did that song. It's been done about over a million times. It get's old. Let me find you something more interesting..

He's not too shabby though, a little messups here and there, but everyone does that. And besides that, I suck at guitar.

Yep simple.... Kid was just playing in a key and simply improvising to the song... If you think that sounds cool then you should check out someone playing slap bass as an improvision....

There is a local band here (all of the "kids" are 16-19) that have played at our events and such, they have the most talented guitarist I have seen in a long time. The style is raggaeesque but they give him some pretty sick rockesque solos. Their bassist is pretty amazing as well.

the guy who arranged it, JerryC is awesome (he's from Taiwan i think), my friend has all of his videos. the best one IMO is Rock On (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTwcuyS5LJ8). and like leed said, this songs been done a million times. leed, the first time i heard Canon, it sounded like a Yngwie song, but i wasnt sure.

edit: leed, i have that song (Air On A G String) too! now if only i could learn to play it...
