Did you actually watch the video? That kid has more skill and talent than ANY of the home made videos on this site. That's not my "opinion", that's a fact. Nobody here can bash that kid.

That seems to be all I hear anymore is "musicality". That means entirely different things to different people. I hear a lot of "musicallity" in his playing. Polyrhythms aren't the end of the earth either. Some people are into them and some are not, it doesn't mean that one is better than the other.

Let's give some credit where credit is due. Let's not sit back and judge people who are out in the world giving it all they have and doing what we wish we could be doing.

Are you better than this kid?...Post a video.
