    He plays great but he should ditch the fuzz. Or go totally electric.

    That is really depressing. All this tells me is 99% is talent.
    Well, i would guess this is how all these great classical talents start off.
    Like Kazuhito Yamashita: (The greatest performance i have ever seen on a guitar):

    Can you imagine when he becomes a teen?! By then babies will come out of the womb genetically pre-programmed with talents and he will be usurped by a 1 month old.

    Yeah, I'm trying to do the best that I can with my measley 1% of capability. Talent, apparently, was not portioned out equally. Not even close.

    Would not surpise me if Yamashita had "it", too, and thanks for bringing him to the table. Wow!

    Yamashita is a genious.

    This is from Wikipedia: Yamashita began to study the guitar at the age of eight with his father, Toru Yamashita. In 1972, aged eleven, he won the Kyushu Guitar Competition. Four years later, he was awarded First Prize in the All Japan Guitar Competition. In 1977, he won three important international competitions - the Ramirez in Spain, the Alessandria in Italy and Paris Radio France Competition, being the youngest winner ever recorded.
    Yamashita has made almost 80 recordings and numerous original arrangements of such works as Mussorgski's Pictures at an Exhibition, Stravinsky's Firebird, Rimsky-Korsakov's Scherezade and Dvořák's Symphony of the New World. He has recorded for BMG (RCA), Crown Classics, Japan Victor, King Records and Alfa Records. His recordings include 16 CD's with the complete works of Fernando Sor, and a collection of 5 CD's containing J.S. Bach's sonatas and partitas for violin, cello, lute and flute (BWV 995-1013), all which he himself transcribed for the guitar. His recording of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, released in 1981, was awarded the Deutsches Grammophon Award.

    Yamashita is an enthusiastic proponent of new works for the guitar and has given the world premier of more than 60 new compositions. In this regard, his world premier and presentation of the works of the Japanese composer Keiko Fujiie is notable. In 1999, he received the National Arts Festival Grand Prize from the Japanese Government's Agency for Cultural Affairs for his CD recording of Japanese Guitar Music 1923-1948.

    Yamashita's early arrangements of Pictures at an Exhibition, Stravinsky's Firebird Suite, Dvořák's New World Symphony no. 9 in E Minor, and others, broke boundaries in terms of solo guitar expression and virtuosity.
