Can't believe how good they are:
These kids ARE amazing!
Much better than the hugely overrated GVF!
These kids do play well, but, I don't know, there's something that bothers me about kids this age jamming on and posting a song 50 years old. It would've been like me back in '77 playing "Ain't She Sweet."
People often make that comparison, but it doesn’t wash.
In the scenario you described, going back 50 years from 1977 puts you in a period of time when the entire rock genre didn’t even exist.
In this case, rock existed 50 years ago, and the difference between jamming on some song from the 60’s versus any modern rock song is very small.
Forget the term Rock, think Popular music. I teach middle school, I doubt I could find 2 kids who would know either "Voodoo Child" or "Ain't She Sweet."
I sure wasn't jamming on 50 year old tunes when I was that age and neither were you.
I was jamming on tunes from the 1500’s since I studied classical guitar. Plus rock tunes of course.
So 50 years is nothing.
