the kid can play, but what he's playing sucks!!! nobody else noticed?! that was boring, the tune (if there was a tune:S) was useless. He's just playing a million miles an hour, and everyone pats the kids back. i think he's totally wasted his time. he doesnt even looked stoked to be playing. (maybe i'm just jealous)
p.s. sorry to anyone who enjoys pure boring lightening speed noodling
LOVING the Mules!

Just taken another look, and that looks so forced.
Theres no expression in his playing, its all to key, so precise, theres no feeling!
It could be stagefright, or my own powerful jealousy, who knows...

Edit- Do'h, didn't read your post properly.. ah well, the post still makes sense on it's own

Yeah true, but as his age could you work a crowd?

He's got the chops down, apart from the bending + vibrato if I remember right (saw this video months ago from the description).. the true test will be his showmanship, and whether or not he'll be able to be charismatic on stage.. and I guess whether or not he can write his own music.

Only time will tell!

I've seen people doing some wicked noodling and stuff. And all over sudden they have to play with a band.....with drums. This strange thing called rhythm suddenly matters. And band mates.....oh dear.

Time will tell. Maybe he's a genius. What do I know?

Sure, he can play fast but thats about it to be honest. It was so boring after the first minute.. Its putting me off wanting to be able to shred, as it just bores people! I think I'll learn to play everything clearly and accurately, not at superspeed :lol:

By the way, he does play along to a backing later on in the video...

clearly very talented, but it was that sort of musical masturbation that put me off rock music for a while. obviously i'm a tad jealous that i am not that skilled. hopefully he'll improve as a musician to the extent he can play well with a band.

does anybody on here remember a kids tv show called the "8:15 from Manchester"? I think thats where Thomas McRocklin first got his exposure. There was a guy at my school (a year older) who was also on there called Gary Creedy (I think) who sadly died when he was about 17.
