My son playing at the kit - along to Guitar Hero tracks
« on: January 31, 2009, 08:29 AM »
I made a reference in another thread recently that my son
is spending time playing at my kit - but with a laptop, following
along to a video of a Guitar Hero track.

He has only had a few lessons from me in the past.
The rest is him figuring it out himself.

I know it's not super polished, but this proud Dad really
thinks he has natural ability.   Take a look.
He video taped himself playing to one of the tracks
and posted it up on    YouTube.



Whatdya think?

How old is he? I started in 7th grade the same way.
Just jam away....Wish I was that age again.  :P
His timing is good in my opinion.  ;)

You can't tell from the vid, but, he's actually 17.

I think his time is good. Again, especially considering the amount of
time he has actually spent at the kit, which is very tiny.

Now that he had this *discovery*, he's logging a Ton of time at the kit -
way, way more than me.  :)

I can literally hear his improvement after every session.
If only he could sustain the work across several months/years,
he'd get dangerous.

He has Ridiculous speed in his hands for a guy who hasn't
really studied.   He also has a very strong, quick foot.

The time tightens up a little notch every time he plays.

I'm so happy for him. I Know he's Loving it.

He agreed to some lessons with a pro in town starting
next Wednesday.  We'll see what that sparks.
