A kid at 6 and what is 5?

What were you doing when you were 6? Probably learning A for apple and B for boy? Kids nowadays are really ahead of their time. Check out this kid… and you MUST wait for his second song…


Amazing 6 Year Old Guitarist - More amazing video clips are a click away

Now, where is my guitar!!!???! Been wanting to change my strings for the longest time. Anyone know where I can get Elixir 1st and 2nd string for an acoustic piece? Damn… I really need to get back to my playing…

Right, the weekend is here, and I am sure it will be gone without you knowing it. But I am sure you will have time for this one…

If…

1 = 5
2 = 25

3 = 125
4 = 625
5 = ?

Have a nice thinking weekend…

bongkersz said...

You have a great weekend too. :)
Correct ah my answer?
I did not see grace's answer. I did my own thinking.

Now I am going to play... play what? anything la. Maybe Age of Conquerors. Build a village and attack the next one. Send out the soldiers, trebuchets, horsemen. woo hoo!

Seok Thong said...

rinnah - hahaha... i tot it's going slow things down for friday. that kid is quite phenomenal, i am so inspired to pick up my dusty guitar again...

erinalaw - sorry sorry... technical error... error rectified already. try again... hehe...

confessing7girl - nope... it aint 3125... thanks for dropping by too. hope to see ya around...

zewt said...

J.T. - age of conquerors? hmmm... is it an old game? i still prefer starcraft. :) .... 5x5x5x5x5 would be the logical answer... but it's not.

Seok Thong - i think i was learning how to draw a straight line... hehe...

jaezrel - i already read your comment... haha!

rachel - hmmm.... this accounting student has got some hope...

-Princess Shin- said...

wahlau said...

bongkersz said...

TTL! said...

Big Rice said...

Oh my goodness! the kid plays so well he even knows how to riff... i used to learn guitar but i dun even know how to switch chords smoothly.. i should go hide myself.. *_*|||

eyhastakenmysoulbutnotmylogic said...

5 = 1 dude.....

hcfoo said...

erm, mathematically, 1 cannot be equal to 5 and so on :P

bujangsigat said...

of course 1 cannot be equal to 5, but only IF...

kyh said...

when i was 6? i stopped going to my kindergarten and attended an English language tuition class instead. A for Apples? B for Balls? LOL! That one was learnt when I was 2 or 3. I learned multiplications (until 12, which is the standard) when I was 5. But then, the older I grew, I realised that Maths is not for me. It's a subject that needs u to do more practice, and practice makes perfect. I'm not the homework-doing kinda guy, thus resulting in my so-so maths results.

Kids now... haih... all the faults of family pressures! so pls be considerate when u're planning for ur child's education in da future. :P

J.T. said...

Zewt, Age of Conqueror's - depends how you define old. I was playing that game since 2003. Before that, was age of Empires. So don't know how old is that game. But I like it.
I have to check out what StarCraft is like.
Give the answer la. Don't make me wait till Monday. :)

J.T. said...

Is it 1125??

may said...

3125!

and I was still playing "house" when I was 6, and running in fields, wearing pretty dresses... ain't got no talent like this boy here!

me said...

sorry, i cheated. i read the answer from the other commentors. :-p that disqualifies me from answering. what lah? weekend also want to give ppl headache meh?

SuLee said...

Im a huge beatle fan and i know most of the song and i cant play twist and shout as well as him!!!

gosh his a good lead!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

hahaha..u got me there for a second..lesson learnt? if u wan to start thinking early in the morning..try doing ur blog..

jaezrel said...

my previous comment was 'at 6 am bz chewing the gums sticking into the faces of my kindey matesssssss muahahahahahah' then i missed out the word 'face' so yea i deleted it

Doreen said...

Oh my god! What a talented genius!. That child is going to be famous or he already is? Sorry, my brain is on strike so I'll pass the Maths. (^_^)

bubbly soda said...

That kid is awesome. Seriously, I don't mind if parents encourage children with talent but I really don't like it when parents pushes their children to do something that the child doesn't like or have interest in. That is just harsh.

Anonymous said...

hi zewt,

5 = what’s the formula again ?

but the no. 5 reminds me of my dad.

to me, five (5) is what I always felt I was whenever my dad hugged me (even when I was grown up). He has since passed away.

celestina said...

5 = 1 hehe

Calvin's Wife said...

i doe wan to show my stupidness, thank you. HAHAHHA... ehm.. :P

zewt said...

princess shin - been asked to go and wanted to go but has decided otherwise. u going?

wahlau - smart... like i said, this is a test to see if you think too much... cos the answer is already there... if 1 = 5, naturally 5 = 1.

bongkersz - it's a good thing, guys usually dont think too much :P u come down to KL, we go KFC together la.

TTL - hahahaha... so damn easy eh? wrong la! oh... dont give up... guitar is a cool instrument... also, can kill girls u know... oh i forgot, u master in kau lui already.

Big Rice - play until your fingers are all blistered, then i am sure u can switch smoothly... :)

eyhastakenyoursoulbutnotyourlogic - well done. oh, i saw LCS at the fun fair today, happily snapping pics of his daughter...

hcfoo - can la... like what bujangsigat say... "IF" mah...

Jewel Rays said...

Gosh this little kid is just impressive. He caught me in listening in. just amazing. I wonder what kinda musician he willbe when he finally grow up. GOSH probably a blast. amazing indeeds.

Its true that kids these days are a step up indeeds. Guess the goverment is encouraging that as well.:)

thanks for dropping by my space.:)

~Jewel

zewt said...

bujangsigat - smart... if 1 = 5, then naturally 5 = .....

kyh - perhaps you started with A for apple and B for Balls too young, thus no more room for maths? hehe... yeah, i know, it's all about pressure, and kids being made to do the impossible, i will make sure u dont make such mistake. but heck, my kid must know how to play badminton! hahaha!

J.T - oh, i have heard of age of empires... think that game is too slow. starcraft, a bit for boys, but if you like real time strategy games, then i am sure you wil be up for it. if 1 = 5, then 5 = ...??

may - 3125 is the natural answer... but it's wrong... oh, i am sure u play masak masak too right?

me - usual la... something to think about over the weekend... and this riddle is meant to see if you think too much... cause the answer is already in the question.

SuLee - a bright future in store for him i am sure...

zewt said...

constant craver joe - hahaha... well, i usually only thinks at night :)

jaezrel - you are damn saddistic la... big bully!

Doreen - hello there. welcome to As Zewt As It Gets. yeah, that kid is a prodigy eh? well... if 1 = 5, then naturally 5 = ...? thanks for dropping by and hope to see ya again...

bubbly soda - that's the way it is now unfortunately. a lot of parents just want their children to outshine others, and what is sick, sometimes, it's for the parents' fame.

anonymous aka feliz - sorry to hear about your dad. i know how it feels to lose a loved one. having said that, i think it's good to be reminded of them once in a while, it keeps them in our hearts, dont ya think?

celestina - smart!

Calvin's wife - why not why not? :P ....

Jewel Rays - hey, welcome to my space too. well, i am not sure whether the govt is pushing them in the right direction here... but that kid is sure one helluva prodigy. hope to see ya around.

Jewel Rays said...

Yeah wish to have kid like that someday..hahaha..:P It muz have been a gift man. I mean like gosh he left me in awe.WOW!hahaa

Kenny Mah said...

When I was six I was spending most of my time eating junk food. Mmmm... junk food... :D

Miss those days. Now it's just extra hours in the gym, hahaha...

confessing7girl said...

buuuu it had to be 3125!!!! ok i got it 1=5 so 5=1!!!i suck at maths!!! :D:D

ps- of course u can use it!!

deOughtred said...

5=3125. Gheezzz... when I was a kid, my parents always asked me to sleep in the afternoon and could only go out to play after 5pm. Somehow, I regret it cause I can't play any music instrument (except recorder, the triangle-steel bar thing, and the casternet <-- correct ke the spelling?).

And now my friends always mock me for not being a real guy, I cant play guitar and I cant play football. :-(

baby sa said...

I will just skip the answer and praise the kid instead....
*tongue out*

kyh said...

5 = 1!!!

Initially i was guessing 3125 too LOL... js noticed it's a tricky there! :P

Kenny Ng said...

*speechless*

This kid really can play, he is natural born to be a guitarist! I also using Squier Strat like him, but the Gibson guitar is awesome!

Why just look for 1st and 2nd string instead of change the whole set? Try find at Bentley Music at Bkt Bintang, they may have it.

Keep on rocking!

one day, kids will just dominate the world. which is ironical coz it's really a (vicious) cycle.

SuLee said...

isnt that 5 to the 5? (5^5)

hmmm tough calculation...go figure!

bongkersz. said...

haha. sure sure.. will find a day :D wait for new promo from KFC lah then.

Cocka Doodle said...

5 ah? 5 equals to going home time. Office closes at 5 mah.
5 = bars opening, happy hours time! LOL

Oi! you guys gotta learn how to let loose a bit lah...especially those who answered 3,125. Hahaha!

Cheers!

J.T. said...

Thank you cocka doodle for your advice. Those who answered 3125, including me, should loosen up. :)
Thinking too much.
Ya lah, now I got it. That was a trick question. 1=5 thus 5=1
Thanks Zewt for a "mind bonking" weekend. :)

Rabbit said...

What a talented boy! I wish I know how to play music instruments, especially piano. I so wanted to learn when I was young, but I faced objection from my parents saying that I needa concentrate on my studies. And I am still regretting till today.

gRaCe said...

cheh!!! so the answer is 1 la izzit? hahaha...nvm...i was still the 1st one to comment..altho answer given was wrong. lolzz.. =P

The Angry Medic said...

Whoa! I've missed quite a bit haven't I? I come back after a while and your old site's gone, replaced by a layout so awesome I'm still trying to get my jaw off the floor.

LOVE the new design. The only thing I don't like is the fact that every time I wanna comment on your blog you've already got like 50 comments on it...someone's famous :)

-Princess Shin- said...

y dun wanna go?

jaezrel said...

no entriessss ??????????

zewt said...

Jewel Rays - hmmm... i hope your expectations doesnt result in pressure for your kids... let them develop naturally, that's when talents can be found. yeah, i am also in awe... haha!

MiNDy - Hi there, welcome to As Zewt As It Gets. yup... that is correct. proves that you're not a person who thinks too much and give 3125 as the answer. the kid is 6, but still a phenomena. thanks for your compliance and hope to see ya around again.

Kenny Mah - hahahahaha... luckily mine was spent playing catching, jump around like monkeys... but still, i have to spend the extra hours in the gym now.

confessing7girl - yeah, cos 'if' always play a role in maths. right, i shall when the time is right. thanks for dropping by again.

deOughtred - Yo! welcome to my space. hmmm.. what's a casternet? oh yeah... i remember those recorder days... haha... was a torture during music class eh? no guitar... ok la, but no football? well, you can always compensate with 'being a football fan' :) thanks for dropping by and hope to see ya again.

baby sa - ahh... short cut ppl... :P

kyh - yeap... the wonders of having 'if' in maths... smart fella u.

zewt said...

Kenny Ng - well, who wouldnt want that Gibson piece, like what Ellen said, it was used by Eric Clapton too! Think my 4rd till 6th strings are all still ok. i am sure u know it's not cheap to change all strings... hmmm, ok, shall go there and have a look. you keep rocking too!

goodshithappens - wahh... why delete so many times ah? perhaps, if you notice... we are kinda going backwards in certain things.

SuLee - the wonder of having 'if' in maths... always a trick...

bongkersz - promo only go meh... haha...

cocka doodle - hahahaha.. only you are able to come up with such answers.

J.T. - haha... but to hit the bar at 5... dont you think it's a lil too early? you're welcome, more mind bonking weekends ahead i am sure.

zewt said...

Rabbit - i thought parents will usually wanna send their girls to learn piano? and the girl will dislike it. hmmm... you are the opposite huh. yeah, i think everyone should try to learn, it's really a beauty to play an instrument. but u know... it's never too late to learn.

gRaCe - hahahaha... ok la.. like that... 10 points to you lor.

The Angry Medic - well, i do understand you're a busy medic :) sure wouldnt have time to blog hop around. thanks, the design is cool but wanted a darker background version. if 50 comments means i am famous, you arent that far behind medic. thanks for dropping by.

Princess Shin - well, i have my reasons. let's just say i dont wanna get too radical in such movement. you going?

jaezrel - you 'fay kai mang' ah?

erinalaw said...

Huei said...

Jewel Rays said...

Yeah Zewt.:) I don't want to let my expectation run the engine in my kids.:) Expression i feel carries a certain passion and liberty. And i hope to at least give them that. hehe..well its easy to say now. Keeping my fingers cross..:P

~JEwel

Bernard said...

Ohhhh.... i read the comments one by one to get to the answer that you were looking for. Haha.
