    I got to think that these kids were shredders in a former lifetime. At least that's what I hope for my next time around. Perhaps I should be practicing more meow...lol

    Maybe it’s because you’re letting someone else’s accomplishments diminish your opinion of yourself? You could probably at least get a little money for those guitars though. :)

    I’m kinda peeved that her Fly Me to the Moon lesson was removed.

    She seems like a very confident, happy, talented young girl.

    Most of my « guitar heroes » are still not at this technical virtuosity after a lifelong career. Take Bill Frisell for instance: he has impeccable technique but he definitely does not come from a parallel universe on this matter.
    The technical skills do not matter as much as what you do with them. There are as few young prodigies who end up becoming accomplished mature musicians than there are « average skilled » ones.
    As a matter of fact, there may be even less, because being overly exposed publicly as a child often prevents you from taking the time to develop your own creativity.

    Of course there are examples, like Julian Lage. But he states that his approach to music has always been based on having fun.

    IMO having fun is always what leads you to become a better musician because that is what connects you to your inner child.

    Thanks! The last couple of times I looked it was down. I should’ve checked again.

    Yes at that age i dont think if i remember right ever thinking about much just jumping in and doing things for the fun of it more.

    But it takes a fair amount of discipline i would imagine as well to learn and with me it has only been learnt as i have got older more, but i suppose with extreme talent like she has it all becomes so easy to progress so that helps alot.
