EIGHT YEAR OLD GIRLS PLAYING METAL ARE LIKE TOTALLY THE NEW “IT” THING

190

Remember last week when eight year old Juliet released her first hardcore song? Of course you do; you were one of 14 million people (!) who watched her video. Maybe you even bought a Juliet t-shirt (?!?).

And remember back in October when a full band of British eight year olds — The Mini Band — covered Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” prompting a response from the big guys themselves? Of course you do!

Now… here’s Mini Band guitarist Zoe Thomson ripping through a neo-classical instrumental shred tune called “Stratosphere,”  which I guess is originally by Stratovarius. Holy crap, she can play! When I was 8 years old I was still playing with Micro Machines and legos, and while I took music lessons too I certainly didn’t have the discipline or dexterity to tackle something like this. Little Zoe’s gonna be quite the accomplished musician some day… that is, if she wants to be. Until then I’ll continue to be jealous that an eight year old’s guitar abilities have topped my own.
