Well, how many of us had seen Tolkki playing guitar in age 8. I think very few or nobody. :wink: Maybe he was already very skillful at that time too. :roll:

yeah...sometimes it's a lot better a well played single note than a lot of hyperspeedscales...like Blackmore said...it's easy to play really fast, but it's a lot harder to sustain a note...somethig like that... :D

what he lacks is creativity and experience, all he played were scales, frigios and other modal figures. He did it well, i'd say, amazing considering his age.
But wait just a few years, when he (hopefuly) develops creativity, feeling and get some experience...he already has the technique, speed and good theory, so let's just wait :shock:

@Heiserich: Numetal or even rap my friend!!! That would be sad :?

In his Forum, TT said he was 7 when he started learning-so, I wasn't off the mark much! :) hats pretty young&impressive, IMO! :)

That kid needs orientation, i hope he takes advantage of his skills and don't give up.
BTW, I also heard that rumor about Tolkki. Timo is a great musician, i wouldn't be surprised that he started playing at 7. But please do not missunderstand me, but i don't like Timo's style that much, i find him so repetitive nowadays, in the past he used a wide universe of techniques while soloing, now he shreds too much, but his creativity in composing is a total blast!
The fact that i don't like him that much doesn't mean that he is a loussy guitar player, it is just my opinion, if i'd thought that i wouldn't be here posting in the forum of the band that i like so much. Okay :D ??
