One of the terrible things about the internet is it brings you face to face with your own inadequacies and failures. No matter what you excel at, there’s someone out there who’s way better than you, even though they’re not old enough to shave yet. Here are a few
mutants wonderfully talented young people.
8 yr old banjo player Jonny Mizzone plays Earl Scruggs’s Flint Hill Special with the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys (aka his brothers Robbie (12) and Tommy (13) on fiddle and guitar). FB
The Mini Band play Enter Sandman by Metallica. These metalheads are all 8 to 10 years old. FB
Elder statesman Brazilian bassist Michael Pipoquinha was 13 yr old when filmed here. Notice the other players watching him closely? That’s cos he’s leading the band!
Finally let’s not beat around the bush. The North Korean Children’s Guitar Ensemble performance of “Our Kindergarten Teacher” is creepy. Someone get them some half size guitars, Stat!
Got any favourite young players to share?
