Sungha Jung

Sungha Jung (born 2 September 1996) is a South Korean acoustic fingerstyle guitarist. Jung creates acoustic covers and arrangements, typically by ear and/or by watching videos, and has original music, which he plays and places 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'. Jung began to play the guitar after watching his father play. He first learned piano, but found it somewhat boring, while his father's guitar playing looked great. Jung was taught the basics of guitar by his father. After learning the basics, he developed his skill greatly just by trying to play what he heard. When he struggled he would study online videos. Jung received his first guitar at age nine, a very coarse plywood guitar that was less than $60. Upon discovering Jung's skill with the toy-like guitar, his father decided to buy him a better one. .
