Check this out...

it's scary to think that his hands won't have even fully grown yet. i'm also feeling sorry for his poor schoolmates who think its a good idea to 'start a band', maybe play a few Blink 182 songs or whatever and get confronted by this wailing fast-picking shenanigans - it would be pretty daunting!

I've seen that before; that kid is scary! God only knows what his reach will be when he's older!! That neck is huge, compared to him!

its hard to beleave this video becuase I dont know of any kids that age that have that much strength in their hands to be able to play like that.

I know my hands and arms used to get really sore in a short while when i was his age.

Holy Moly!!!
All I was thinking about at 8 was building dens and playing footie. He must have been born with that guitar.
He might be good but do you think he actually enjoys it. I guess when he hits his teen years and starts to get the girls he will!  :lol:

Is it real or is it fake?

If it is real it's totally amazing.

There's no denying he's a good player but it's just speed for the sake of it in my opinion :)

I remember that kid. I think he made a video or two, and he was in one of Vai's vids from Passion & Warfare. 15 minutes is all you get if you can't write good songs.

GREAT PLAYING

BUT SERIOUSLY NOT THE KIND OF KID YOU WANT PLAYING ON YOUR SHOW STAND AT A GUITAR SHOW

WHICH PLAYERS WOULD WANT TO TRY GUITARS OUT ON YOUR STAND AFTER HE'D BEEN ON???

Its' bad enough following a shred-king in his 20s, but to look inept after an 8 year old is just something that nobody wants to do

Could be kind of quiet on that stand for the rest of the day

John McRocklin; very gifted young guitarist. I have no idea what became of him.

Seriously, tho, if you want to see a KICK ASS young guitarist, check out Chelsea Constable!!!

Apparently, according to one of the UK guitar mags (from a while back any road), Thomas Mc Rocklin was working in a guitar shop in the North East somewhere. I think.

Ive been playing for two months, and im like that....just alot worse...hehe.
Ive never seen the guitar as being a chore, so ive never actually had a lesson. It just came to me as a way to express myself, i could play it and be satisfied with myself. Sure ive had my ups and downs, but ive had my shred-friend help me along, and hes younger than me.
This kid surely has potentional, but its a good question if he enjoys it, i hope he hasnt been forced to play.
