Sungha Jung is a South Korean musician who specializes in acoustic fingerstyle guitar and a piano artist. His YouTube channel currently has more than 4.7 million subscribers. Jung creates acoustic covers and arrangements, typically by ear and/or by watching videos, and has original music, which he plays and uploads online. He was nicknamed the “Guitar Prodigy” and the “August Rush” in Korea, though he prefers to be known as a ‘guitarist’ rather than a ‘guitar prodigy’.
Soon after his first debut video on the internet, he garnered many supporters, from whom he asked for advice on his playing. His cover of “The Pirates of the Caribbean” theme song, which currently has over 50 million views on YouTube, made Jung an internet sensation, and his playing caught the attention of world-renowned guitarists.
Here’s an outstanding video of Sungha performing famous neo-classical metal music ‘Canon Rock’ on electric guitar. Check it out below:
