Playing a lot of Sega Genesis.
1966...I was sitting on a boat cushion in the front seat of the family J-3 Cub, learning to fly. I couldn't reach the rudder pedals, Dad made wood blocks eventually so I could learn rudder control.
I was taking piano lessons too. The only legacy there is that I can read music.
Great point. I would say Derek Trucks would be one of the best examples within the guitar community. He is a former prodigy whom actually went on the create a very unique sound, and has continued to grow as player throughout his life.
I believe in reality, musicians with excellent who work hard eventually catch up to the majority of prodigies.
Gev is great, yet Aron is even more impressive IMO. Many prodigies play with incredible technique, but this kid really plays with the full on conception, taste, depth of groove of a full grown man. It's these types of kids that make me wonder of reincarnation is really possible. Because it just doesn't seem possible to have enough life experience to put this kind of feeling into music. He is creating this bassline, the original song has a simple keyboard bass line.
When I was 9, I was just flailing away on my $10 kid toy guitar.
I didn’t get good till I was 11.
OK, I haven’t gotten good yet, but I will.
I was playing Hawaiian steel through my Fender Champ. Wish I still had the amp...
Doing all kinds of fun things. Didn't play guitar yet. But I followed the weekly music show, there were only two tv channels at the time in the Netherlands. Listened to the radio and records a lot. Reading comic books was also something a did a lot. And watching television a lot. I didn't now exacactly what series were running then excactly. I think it was the FBI and also the BBC version of the Last if the Mohicans was showed at the time.
So I was playing and fooling around like a person that age should do in my opinion. I wasn't into worrying about the future at all. That has changed. I understand taht the race to the bottom starts at elementary school nowadays.
At 9 I was busy being a typical 9 year old. I did learn gun safety & how to shoot in that timeframe, though.
Grieving about my late dad.
Died just 2 months before my 9 yo bd. Drank himself to the grave. And you know, in rural Finland back then it was a shameful thing not to have a dad. My ”friends” picked me about it. The worst times was when we had had to do fathers’ day cards in grammar school. The teatchers didn’t have any sensivity. Just do it to your granpa! And this said in front of the class.
No wonder I so totally f*ucked up today.
Riding motorcycles. I couldn't drive a car until my legs go long enough to reach the clutch pedal.
Excuse me while I go do a thing...
Inspired by the character of Spock, seeing him as representing a better way to live (compared to my parents), I began transforming myself accordingly. The changes stuck for many years, probably even until now.
Oh, it had to be moderated, of course.
1972 - I do remember hearing something about the Beatles breaking up earlier in my youth! @ 9 would typically leave the house before 9 and had to be home when the street lights came on. I was riding my blue stingray with chrome fenders and a blue sparkly banana seat, building bikes with parts from the dump, not putting my fathers tools back where they belonged, spending hours in the woods, playing kick the can, making NASA space capsules for GI Joes from Clorox bottles and reading a lot. Everyday was an adventure!
At 9 I was a year into playing guitar. Well, making noises on guitar.
If it weren't for work, cars, motorcycles, wives and children, I might have ended up on someone's couch as a professional musician.
I probably dodged a bullet due to lack of skill. And probably for the best overall.
I definitely wasn't doing that. I'm pretty sure I was sitting in the back yard burning worms with a magnifying glass...
Isn’t that the kid from the movie “Up”?
He's actually smiling, bouncing, bobbing, and making faces, so it looks like he is having fun.
He’s not quite in the pocket, and I hate that Jaco “bass” sound. But hey, he’s way better than me and all I did when I was 9 was play with Legos and ride my bike.
I was stealing my Dad's guitar and teaching myself to play.
I was building and launching model rockets. I probably built about 20 kits and did a few of my own design. That was a lot of fun.
I also was being taught piano by a strict German woman. Almost made me not like music.
