It’s always impressive to see young children to play with virtuosity on their electric guitar, acoustic guitar, piano or any other instrument. The 8 year old in the video has some very remarkable talent on the electric guitar. There are many young musicians who play masterfully, but I was still astonished when I saw it. It’s awesome to see youngsters exhibiting the discipline it takes to learn how to play musical instruments at a high level and fast tempos.
Some people seem to be born with a natural knack for playing music and playing music at fast tempos with great technical skill. Even though some abilities are natural, it’s clear when you’re learning an instrument that many more abilities are learned through hard work and a focused practice. Most people who don’t get better at playing their instrument simply aren’t taking the time to practice or simply are not focused during their practice. If you are not taking the time to practice you should ask yourself a few questions. Do you know what to practice to make you better? If you have a music teacher for private lessons they should most certainly provide you with things to practice. If you don’t have a teacher then consider getting one to help you break down your strengths and weaknesses and get you on a path to musical improvement. Do you like the instrument you play? Guitar is a popular instrument but it’s not for everyone. If you’re not practicing maybe you’re not that crazy about the instrument you’re playing. Do you have a goal in mind? I’m not exactly sure what happens in someone’s head at the moment of truth when they decide they want to do something. Whatever it is it seems to happen that way with people who decide they want to learn a new musical instrument like guitar, piano, ukulele, or any other. It’s usually not a matter of whether you can learn to play the instrument or not. It’s almost always a matter of deciding in which capacity are you going to learn to play this instrument and are you willing to set forth the time it takes to do so. If you want to be the best then you need to be willing to practice for hours and hours a day like the very best do. Having a goal in mind will help you to more quickly realize that goal.
