On a more serious note, I'm looking forward to seeing this guy (kid) shred onstage for the Oz man. I want to challenge this guy to a Riff-Off!

Wow, I wonder what gauge of string hes using to hit those bends. Because his hands are f***in tiny.

P.S. I would own this guitar noob.

bbristowe - But the real question is could you pawn this kid when you were 9? Not that's its a pissing match or anything. And how hard is it to bend 9s (which I assume is what he's using)? Not very.

Kid done good. Not perfect, but for his age, being foreign on a national stage, I thought he did very well. If I saw a 9 year old pull off crazy train like this I'd up the horns \m/

Worth watching the video purely for the look on the little kid's face when Ozzy came out. I wonder how much he (the kid) weighs compared to that guitar he was toting...

Great job...the future of Japanese metal is in good hands LOL! Loved the way he butchered the lyrics in a uniquely Japanese sort of way... cute. I wonder if Ellen asked him what he thought about the Dio version of Sabbath? How about Rhodes vs Wylde vs Lee. (He is obviously a Rhodes fan with that Rhodes flying V) .

IN-you fail at spanish....but yeah. He looks more chinese to me. Oh, and one of the reasons he's so good is that his parents probably MAKE him practice alot. I used to do the Suzuki Piano method and my teacher had some chinese students...their parents made them practice HOURS a day. They had horrible technique, but they could play the songs. I bet this kid practices the hell out of the guitar...blegh...I'm not saying he's not good or anything, but...

I once saw a japo kid transform into a tractor right in the middle of class, and then he shot a laser beam out of his tailpipe and killed 8 kids behind him. all the screaming finally woke him up, and he promptly apologized, and got sent to the principal's office for sleeping in class.

Unfortunately, the principal was chinese, so they just turned into giant dinosaurs and battled in the school parking lot. It would have been intresting to watch, but the korean kid just nuked them. Oh well.
