Sungha Jung

I can not believe the prodigious talent of this kid! His name is Sungha Jung, a 12-year-old acoustic fingerstyle guitarist from South Korea. I think, in my opinion, that he is one of the best acoustic instrumentalists you’ll ever see on YouTube! And his young age makes him all the more remarkable! He plays mostly pop covers, but he also has some originals which you can check out on his YouTube site, MySpace site and his website. When I saw him play his covers of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition,” Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” and The Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” I was stunned! I thought to myself that he is one absolutely promising talent who has so much to offer the music world in the years to come! For his age, he plays his chords with stunning clarity, technique and feel! Watch his right hand strums, plucks, taps and subdues the strings with his palm to get the sound he wants. Plus, he does harmonics on the fretboard you’d almost swear it couldn’t possibly be a kid playing those notes! What genius! I thank God for people with talent like his! FANTASTIC!
