Shy Kid Gets On Stage, Stuns Entire Crowd With “Classical Gas” Guitar Solo
His Fingers Are Smoking!
Look out for Smokin’ Joe Robinson! This 16- year-old is well on his way to becoming one of the greats in his currently blossoming career as a bad ass guitarist.
“I just wanted to come and sort of, give Australia what they voted me through for.. I hope I did everyone proud..”
Annihilating his acoustic solo from Mason William’s “Classical Gas,” Joe manages to transform his guitar into a drum with subtle, yet powerful beats against the hallow surface of the instrument.
Rockin’ his old school country shirt, this Aussie’s fingers are almost unrecognizable throughout the video. The dexterity and flexibility that he is able to achieve when playing these challenging notes is not only incredible in general, but for a 16-year-old? It’s insane!
Interesting Fact: “Classical Gas” is a well known as it won Grammy awards in 1969 for Best Instrumental Composition, Best Contemporary Pop Performance, Instrumental, and Best Instrumental Arrangement.
All we have to say is check out Smoking’ Joe, he could very well be the next guitar icon for this generation! We look forward to his future success and watching him grow!
