Is this kid that Good? "Nothin' To It"

There must be those with pure natural talent.

My next fiddle tune goal is "Nothin To It". I like the ragtime style of it. Searching YouTube for examples I came across this

Sounds kind of fantastic to me. I feel very sure that had I started that young I would still never have been anywhere near that good. Pushing seventy I know I'll never be that good. This is out of the ordinary, but are far out of the ordinary is it? Is this someone I will hear more about if I live a few more years?

BTW I am still going to try and learn Nothin To It. My version will be just as relaxed and a lot slower tempo.

I don't know if I should feel inspired or disappointed in myself. :)

Great picking, and he didn't even look at either of his hands!
