I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

Five little prodigies.  Marvelous.

Why do I even try?

Re: Kids and Guitars

We need teachers here who can accomplish something like this. Can you imagine?

Re: Kids and Guitars

Hmmm I wonder what the teaching method was?  Starvation if tehy dont get it? how many hours  a day were they made to sit there?  I may sound extreem, but it really is how some countries do things.  Just look at teh BS 6 yr old beauty queens with the sadistic moms who were never good enough to win on their own, and now they are giving them even more attention with a tv show?????

ok off my soap box.

Re: Kids and Guitars

I agree beamer.  Those countries push hard to learn.  Same in gymnastics.  Those kids probably practice many hors each day.  The pay off is good however.

True, sorry guys their playing is awesome, no offence to that, but it does have an aura of child abuse around it. I have had a good deal of contact with Asian kids and, believe me, even outside of Asia there are crazy thing going on in their communities. I remember having this classmate who was 17 and in severe depression as he got scolded by his family that he is not achieving good enough. He was a stable A student, in some kind of sports team, in 2 or 3 comitees at any given time and performed Phantom parts of ''Phantom of the Opera'' in school musical with a great skill, but after performance couldn't look his family in the eyes.

No offence to Asians in general in this comment, I know also amazing close knit families, but, their culture makes them competitive as, and I bet those children played till their fingers bled and well past that, and I m not sure if it happened from their free will.

I once was in a class for "Radiation safety Officer"  Its all about half life , shielding , ect... most of us were military or civile defence.  We had a young guy about mid 20s who was a nuke engineier who was asian. Very cool guy btw, we had an asignment and the instructor told us when we finished we were done for the day. 5 min later he stood up and said C-Ya! We gave him he!! for blowing the Bell curve and the jokes about him being an overachiver.  He said in all seriousness, " Actually im the lazy one in my family, I like to party."  Seems his 4 older brothers and sisters were super smart neuro surgeons and stuff like that.  He also told us how many hours a day he was forced to have to do studies. 
A great guy, wish Idd kept in touch with him.
