This 12 Year Old is Better at Playing In Dorian Mode Than You

No video on the internet is perhaps as mysterious as this one. Sure, we’ve all seen videos of young kids absolutely shredding, but none that I have seen are this cool, with absolutely a pittance of views. I can’t even tell you how I dug this deep into the web, but I’m glad I did.

This child prodigy plays in dorian mode…what is Dorian mode you ask? Here’s how the good folks at Artopium’s Music Dictionary describe it…
What does Dorian mean in music?
Music Term: Dorian
D. Dorian. A mode used in Gregorian chant based upon the second tone of the major scale. In the key of C, the Dorian mode would be based on D, and would include D, E, F, G, A, B, C, D.the second mode, the scale having half steps between degrees 2 & 3, and 6 & 7

We also found a few articles to help explain Dorian mode. Check out this one from Justin Guitar or this one from Musical-U or lastly this one from Guitar World.

Vincent Brzezinski is this kids name. Let’s show this young savant some love and share this around! At around 0-9 seconds, he is just kind of warming up and chugging along playing the scale. Then around 10 seconds the kid starts channeling Dime Bag Darrell and playing at 300 miles an hour. What were you playing when you were 12? Let us know in the comments below!
