I saw this a while back, and although I'm impressed with the video, I feel kinda sorry for the little kids. What you're seeing in the video has nothing to do with musical talent, but everything to do with repetitive rote learning. It's my guess that their smiles are the result of indoctrination, not joy. Also, the audio track does not match the video well at all, which makes me suspect the music was recorded before the kids filmed the video. (I have no idea if it's actually them playing the recorded music, but I'm certain the video is not a live recording of their playing.)

Well first of all I cant play any musical instrument much to my regret, I can read music and sing but when it comes to playing I am in awe of anyone who plays. I also find myself in agreement with Vaughn (can't believe I said that) that the whole thing looks staged.

Don't go burning your guitars just yet. All you have to do is spend 8 hours a day practicing and in what appears to be a relatively short amount of time, you too could do that.
Seriously. One of my friends had a bad car wreck and he was out of commission for over a year. Bored out of his skull, he decided to use his time productively and he picked up the guitar. It's amazing what you can do if you put your mind to it and dedicate the time and energy.
Not to take anything away from those kids, I would suspect that that this was not their idea, and that they spent many, many, hours practicing that song...

Maybe it's the cynical side of me, but when I see video's like these, I think about today's technology...as in videos like this one below....kinda convincing if you let it... but I was brought up with...believe nothing what you hear & only half of what you see
The perception of perfection is perfectly clear to everyone else
But I do agree it doesn't look all that real... neither does the babies roller skating.
