Sungha Jung

Lovely recent Youtube offering by 12-year-old Korean Sungha Jung, unschooled guitar wunderkind. How I would love to meet this kid, say a word of thanks, and ask for his autograph! This strange exposure to all the web-wide world of one gifted young person’s pure devotion to discovery of music in the most common, readily shared-in fashion of our time really is something to be glad in, I think. He’s not only gifted, he seems to have become, whether he knows it or not, sort of a gift.

    Thanks so much for this. Just spent a happy hour listening to him play. You know, the kid’s got charisma in addition to sheer talent. Rather humbling it all is. Thanks again…

    Peace out.

    Charisma, yes. Humbling, yes.

I'm listening ...
