Introducing Jack Ripper

Jack Ripper.  Remember the name as you’re sure to be seeing it again.  He’s a 12 (!!!) year old guitar prodigy out of Phoeniz, AZ who’s mentioned in a great little post on   That same post also links to an interview he did with XM radio’s Eddie Trunk, as well as some awesome footage of the young shredder playing the “Star Spangled Banner” at Rocklahoma this year.

Now normally I could give 3 shits about ANOTHER young kid covering the National Anthem (a la Hendrix), but wait until you hear him tremelo pick the higher part of the song.  With ease.  And with more than a little confidence on the stage.  All I can say is WHOA, when this kid is old enough to drive himself to gigs, there’s gonna be a different type of battle of the bands in ole’ Phoenix, know what I mean?  Provided Phoenix can manage to keep him that long.

So support today’s youth, especially the ones with enough initiative to actually learn the REAL guitar and not some video game.  Thanks to Phoenix New Times where I stole this great action photo.
