A Tale of 3 Young Guitar Wonders

Kids who play guitar really well!




(ages not confirmed)

We're eternally grateful to reader John L. for scouting out hot guitar talent for our Young Guitar Wonders family. BAM! Just like that, he sends me three of 'em too!!!

Below is a selection of vids and available links to these voodoo children. Friends & relatives are welcome to chime in any additional scoop via the bottom comment link.


Pretty wild when a 16 year old in 2010 is in the loop with this stuff! See influences below. Preston's vibrato reminds me of early live Robin Trower.

From Preston Dow's Youtube Channel popomczowzow :

"...I've been playing guitar since January-ish of 2008..."

Influences listed: Jimi Hendrix, Phish, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pink Floyd, David Gilmour, Stevie Wonder, Santana, Bob Marley, George Clinton and Parliment Funkadelic, Frank Zappa, Rush, SRV, Umphrey's McGee, Jimmy Page, BB King, Wolfmother, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Sublime, K'naan, Ben Folds, Eric Johnson


Nice Knopfler attack and tones! Nick hails from Albany, NY, digs mellow music and wants everyone to just chill.

I'm down with ya there, Nick!

His influences also span the time & genre spectrum, and include: "Amos Lee, Donny Hathaway, The Cat Empire, John Mayer, Bob Marley Jason Mraz, Guns'N Roses, Jimmy Hendrix, B.B. King, The Temptations, Velvet Revolver, Jack Johnson, Steve Ray Vaughan, Dave Matthews Band, Led Zeppelin, Squeeze, Bob Marley, The Beatles, Carlos Santana, Andy Timmons, SRV, Muse..."



Although I dig all these young cats because they're all amazing, Jeff Howard this THE Badass Supremo here!!! Jeff is the guitarist for Connecticut based trio The McLovins, a tight, focused & working band with product to sell! These cats are wasting NO time folks! Influences include Phish, Dead, Primus, you get the idea. Howard has all the tools from funky rhythm to solos well beyond his 15 years. And a feel for Strat tone like nobody's bidness. Be sure to check out the tune "This Town" in the McLovins main web page.

Remember that the South Saturn Delta Force is alive, well and growing right here on Earth!
