Sungha Jung: Fretkillr’s Padawan?

So amidst the old commercials and lame cellphone vids of college students doing shit they’ll regret in 10 years, YouTube holds the unrecognized talent of multitudes. Much like I use MySpace now, YouTube exists primarily as a vehicle for me to stumble on random musicians that can rock my face off without me giving the RIAA any money. I previously shared the faceless Fretkillr, flat-picker extrordinaire. And thanks to CNN/SI’s penchant for weird pop culture tidbits, I can now bring you the awesome that is Sungha Jung, a 10-year-old Korean boy with some serious acoustic guitar chops. He’s got over 120 vids on his channel, but I’ve pulled a couple of my faves out here. Let’s start off with a little Pink Floyd, shall we?

Goodbye Blue Sky

U2 and more after the break.[ad#shortpost]

With or Without You

For those that prefer their guitars plugged in and turned up to 11, I give you Quinn Sullivan (age 7) making George Harrison proud.
