Parker Wallace “Slimer”
Eric Clapton, move over here comes Slimer, and he is knocking at your heals. Slimer can shred like no other, if you didn`t see him play, you would think it was someone twenty five years old, but Slimer is only ten. This kid has some serious skills when it comes to the guitar. Playing has come natural and it is in his blood.
When listening to Slimer, it is easy to think that he just plays all the time, but that is not so. He first started playing in 2009 on a fake Yngwie Malmsteen stratocaster, which belonged to his uncle. His uncle Manny is a big guitar player himself, and he has sort of edged Slimer into it. Two weeks after he started playing Manny got him a mini strat.
He took off playing like he already knew how. In no time he was playing full songs, and now he can do almost anything. The part that baffles the mind is, he doesn`t play very often at all. He might pick it and play maybe once a week and sometimes two weeks will go by before he picks it up and plays, but he does it like it is no challenge. His uncle Manny says, that there are many times he will go jam with him, and it is just like he had never stopped. When he plays he prefers Melodic instrumental rock. He has been taking his shredding skills to a few places, he has played at the Coachella Valley arts and music festival and at the Stagecoach festival. Here in a few weeks he will be doing a school talent show along with a friend of his. He also just recently started playing with a band, and they call themselves Slimer and The Slobs. He gets a lot of his inspiration from Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, John Petrucci, and of coarse his uncle Manny.
Guitar is not the only thing Slimer excels in, he is awesome in sports. He plays soccer year round on all star teams, and he also took fifth in the state 400 meter in track, and he done this the day after a soccer tournament. Slimer is a person who is gifted, and just excels at what ever he does. When it comes to the guitar he really has a lot of fun playing and enjoys it very much. There are many great guitar players his age, but the difference is the time that they put into playing. Some people play everyday for hours, Slimer plays off and on and plays like he never puts it down. Slimer, just does not know how good he really is, and to think with this kind of ability, if he just doubled the amount of time playing, he would be better than most could only dream of. If he finds the love of playing, and plays on a daily biases, he could literally become one of the greatest guitar players ever. He truly is amazing. Slimer, your awesome dude!
