This live rock guitar cover is from January 19, 2015, in the performance of one young musician from Southern California, USA. Namely, Scotty at the time when he played this guitar cover of the song ‘Beryl’, was only 13-years-old. The video is made in 2015 when Mark Knopfler released his album called Tracker.
Today, Scotty is an 18-year-old professional musician, composer, and songwriter specializing in 8 instruments of which include: electric and acoustic guitar, dobro, the pedal steel, piano/keyboards, banjo, mandolin, and ukulele.
He is also a budding, respected producer and music engineer, which is an absolutely impressive and ambitious feat for someone his age. At the age of 10, he picked up a guitar for the first time and quickly discovered that he had an astounding talent for playing and writing songs by complete chance.
His knowledge in music theory now exceeds the professional level, and his ability to master so many different instruments in such little time serves as proof that he is indeed a rare, young prodigy. Scotty, (along with his older sister Nicole), write music far beyond their young years, creating sounds so rich with life experience that it is a wonder the pair are only 18 and 22.
He and Nicole focus on writing songs with substance, and as a team deliver countless, heartwarming and motivational stories through beautiful and well-crafted songs to their listeners and fans. Scotty has often been compared to several influential guitarists and musicians, some of which include John Mayer, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Eric Clapton.
Until now, he has made a few electric and acoustic video covers of a couple of songs by Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler. Check the video below, and give us a comment if you like it, and do you want more videos from him. Enjoy!
