So I think we can all put away excuses for another day.

What gets me is that she's only eight, and has been playing for six years already.

Are we witnessing the next Buddy Rich...? Imagine what she'll be doing when she's at our (average) ripe old ages!

You know that huge grin she gets as she comes up to a fill and gets to lay it down?

Is it a good or bad thing that I do that in my late 30s?

Bring them to my house and we can shoot them, blow them up, whatever we want. I feel the same way. That girl is amazing.

Ok, there's one for the totally cynical approach.

8 years-old? Pretty damned amazing if you ask me! I wish I could play the bass drum half as good as she does.

Very nice played etc for such a young child, but for some reason i am just not a huge fan of those miracle-children..I am not excluding a jealousy-part here btw..lol..

Plus, bad part for her is kinda that most likely she will be seen the rest of her life as 'being that 8 year old who....', if she would turn into a professional drummer..

Ask Tony Royster Jr. about that..

When I was 8, I didn't know that I wasn't supposed to be able to play "Jessica" with my father's band. It just happened, and I had a lot of fun with it.

That's the good news... but...

By age 14, I was playing bars a couple days a week. By 16, I dropped out to play guitar full time. By 21, I was completely, utterly burnt on the business side of music.

Ultimately, I'm OK with the entire "child virtuoso" thing, but am not OK with the "child virtuoso for money" thing.

Or ask Buddy Rich at age 8 in Vaudeville instead. He turned out OK I think.
How does one know who she will be seen as the rest of her life?
I see what she did as surely exceptional, a total 'natural' if you will, but a miracle? (well miracles don't exist anyway).

I like seeing her sheer unadulterated joy of playing, the heart and soul she puts into it, the accomplishment, the thrill of victory...Like a young Hiromi.

That whole song was an effort of joy for her. She is completely precious.

I think Tony Royster Jr. also turned out pretty ok and i am also not worrying for this girls future..

Fact is that how people start their musical carreer just determines a lot on how they will be seen later on in life..I am not having a judgement about that, is just how things are..For example, artists who start their carreer on a tv talent-show also have to hear all their life about 'being that guy/girl from Idols..or whatever)'..

I think someone like Anika Nilles has proven allready quite some time that she is a lot more then 'just a YT-drummer'..Now, go look the comments about her on this forum..lol..

That's great! I hope she continues to love playing as she gets older - she could be working with a lot of people in the future!

Longtime lurker who finally signed up to contribute ... this thread about Yoyoka stopped with her doing Bonham and there's a lot more to make everybody go put their gear on sale, LOL!


Here's another example of her footwork:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y58SdDNfWlM


Here's confirmation that she's not just been programmed to do this by rote, she understands what she's doing well enough to apparently coherently and articulately explain it to people (does anyone here speak Japanese)?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIqlmDKIICE&t=124s


And in this one, she's playing at a live gig (her family has a band), not along with a recorded track, she's driving the car on stage with nowhere to hide, and what I see is someone who's 8 years old and having fun but also pretty much at 8 years old has total command of her instrument.

I used to be depressed by these kind of clips but this was nothing short of joyful. The smiles and laugh put it over the top :)

I could spend the rest of my life trying to get that competent and I wouldn't even come close.

On the positive side, years ago clips like this made me realize that I should simply spend my time staying in my zone, time doing what I can do and trying to enjoy every minute of it.

I found a translation to this "lesson" of hers from someone who speaks Japanese. From the translator: She's telling people how to do the triplets that Bonham used in Good Times Bad Times. She calls it a phrase Tsu-doh-doh to express the triplet with hi-hat on the first beat and kick drum for the second and third beats. Its an interesting technique. She explains that you can slide your foot forward (or move it left to right), and utilize the bounce of the kick pedal to play the triplet. Its a cogent, easy to understand demonstration of a technique that most people without her gifts will never be able to master. She explains that she previously employed double kick pedals, but then figured out how to play them with one foot.

What she does and explains took me well over 20 years to figure out and do, crappily. Its fun to watch someone who basically learned in a weekend what it took me a lifetime. Kudos to her, she is awesome.

I'm dazed and confused....

well, not really. But very impressed indeed.

"Hit like a girl" is well and truly finished as an insult.

So what do we say now? "Man, you hit like a butterfly"?

"Man, you hit like a tortoise"?

I really liked seeing her exhibit the same left arm mannerisms whilst doing the repeated pedal triplets, I knew then that this video is truly authentic.

What a joy to watch. Thanks for that

I think the clip I linked of her playing at a live gig actually is more meaningful and impressive than her "doing Bonham." We all know there's a big difference between showing off in a controlled studio setting and keeping the car between the lines at a live gig where there's no place to hide. She's just so relaxed and in control there, handling the ebbs and flows of that particular piece, which sounds like kind of a jazz/rock piece, very fluently.

I'm hoping in 15 years or so this kid will have done some special things because she sure has a gift. Of course it could just as easily go bust. I'm not a soothsayer.

She has been interviewed, though, and says her goal is not just to make music but to be involved in all aspects of the business including production. I was kind of a precocious kid at 8, but I didn't have my head that much in the right place.

Turned out ok? Buddy was a deeply flawed human being. He was an egomaniac who treated people terribly. Not a nice guy so no, he didn't turn out ok. Amazing how we put people on a pedestal and proclaim them to be great people simply because they excel at something. Flame away.

I'll light up! Who said drummers need to be nice guys, this whole thing of behaving oh so correctly in order to be an " acceptable " musician is just a load of bunkum. Pretty much goes in hand with all the beige music being bandied around..give me the flawed humans any day, way more interesting. go ahead excel in mediocrity you know you want to. ha!

Firstly, unbelievable! She nailed that from start to finish!

Secondly, people saying that her parents are using her for cash.. Look at that grin on her face! She isn't being force to play drums, she's loving every second of it!

Loving the fact she absolutely nailed those killer fills and did the bass drum justice with some incredible Bonham like footwork.

Thanks for sharing.

What a gift! I hope as she gets older, she finds some musicians that can continuously challenge her. She obviously enjoys what she's doing. On a lot of the child prodigy videos, you can tell the kid is forced and not having fun at all. I've seen the same thing on baseball fields; where the kid has been pushed to be the next All-Star from the time he was 5; then is totally burned out on the game be the time he's 14.

Wow out of the mouths of babes. She's got talent-I wonder if this is self taught or has she been given lessons? Impressive either way. Do you think she is counting the music at this early age? I can related Kamak as I started playing at 8 and don't know how I did it-or don't remember? When I played sax in early teens I read the music, counted, it was played in measure. I've never played drums in that manner till decades later-the music was the whole song not subdivided-more like a story. So I could stop and start the story anywhere but I wasn't thinking this is in 4/4 or this is 7/8 or we are at this measure of the song.

Her mom and dad are musicians and they may be facilitating this publicity. But I can't see ... given her sheer joy at playing and the way she so articulately and passionately shares her knowledge in those clips I shared where she's giving "drum lessons" ... that any real or imaginary guns are pointed at her head making her do this.

That one clip I shared that I labeled "another example of her foot skills" ... she's not so adorable in that one, she gives some first-rate "drum face" and looks like the stone-cold killer she is with sticks in her hands. :)
