Well, it is a transcription. It depends on which transcription you're playing.

Most likely Level 8 and above, unless it's a simplified edition.

I'd go with the "and above" part of that statement, it's very fast.
It's really fun to play, and worth learning IMO. smile


It is better to be kind than to be right.

It looks pretty hard. I don't think my fingers are capable of going that fast.

that speed is amazing... if I could have just a bit of that speed... *dream* but personally I'd prefer it a touch slower... at times the notes sounded kind of overlapped to me... maybe my brain's just not fast enough laugh

Akira, Wahnsinnig! Amazing! I just had a thread going about how to speed up -- but I don't think I'll ever reach such perfection!

What a joy to watch Yuja play, thanks for sharing!

I've seen several of Yuja Wang videos including this one. It really is amazing.
