Got this link from Brians site. Thought it might be fake at first, this young kid playing this well, but I believe it's real. Brian does to I guess. My wife thought Brian played it and this kid was pretending lol.
Check it out, it's incredible.

Brian himself admitted that kid's better than he is.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Well, I guess he's better than Brian is at 80's metal shredding, but Brian's metal shredding wasn't exactly the thing that kept me coming back to him over and over again.

Anyway, if anyone likes blues (a la SRV) and has ever heard of Eric Steckell, he would surely have known a true guitar prodigy.

I'm not a big fan of that style of playing...but I will say it takes a gift to pull it off. As a guitar player...I have found that sound of playing limits you in what kind of songs you can create.

You know he's just being polite. Imagine brian saying something like 'Ah he sucks, i'm better' come on, he isn't Axl Rose.
He plays good, but his playing is very emotionless

This kid... reignites my love hate relationship with sweep picking (which I can't really do very well at all).

I mean, it sounds incredibly fast when done properly, but it becomes stale - a party trick. I found myself most enjoying the parts where he employed a bit of sustain and vibrato, fiddly bits are fine and all... but oh well, what the heck do I know?

Great player.

Whoever plays it, I like it. The style sounds like a cross between Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Johnson, and Brian may.

Regardless of trickery, fakery or whatever, that was thoroughly enjoyable.

As to whether these people are better or worse than Brian....nothing worse than relegating music to a race or a competition...

Still - it was fucking good fun to watch...
