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.
