His father soon found out that his son was talented but he never expected that much when he uploaded a video of him performing on YouTube. “My father took a video with a digital camera. He uploaded it on YouTube just for fun,” recollects the 14-year-old who plays fingerstyle, a tricky technique where the fingertips, fingernails, or picks attached to fingers directly pluck strings.
