    Default My kid playing "Unchained" in honor of VH2012

    My 9-year-old got a new mini-amp for Christmas -- which he of course thinks is cooler than his regular amp. He's just been playing "Unchained" over and over so I asked if I could film him and he said yeah. He pretty much nails is for a 9-year-old! Enjoy!

    Nice

    Feels good to know that a 9 year old is playing better than when I started at age 15. lol

    Just be sure to keep him into it and don't let all that gear become furniture.

    DUDE!!! You absolutely CANNOT post that without also showing off his original whack it at on the fishtank net in the carseat. That clip is of legendary status!


    Very cool to see that he still digs the tune after all these years.

    You're right! You're right!

    This clip of my son was posted 5 1/2 years ago (this is how you "brainwash" your children the good way). He was so into the song he used to just sing his heart out to it AND air guitar. He was 3 1/2 years old at the time. He just turned 9. Here it is -- him air guitaring with an aquarium fishnet and singing out the words! It's classic -- ENJOY!

    I never get sick of watching that. Especially his head-bang at :46

    He looks pretty much the same at 9. Keep him listening to the good stuff. PLaying at such an early age, he'll out-Eddie Eddie eventually.
