I'm sitting at home, spending a quiet afternoon correcting student essays (forty down, forty left to go!) and listening to Sungha Jung's gorgeous acoustic guitar playing on his YouTube channel. It's great working music, so I'm sharing it here:

This kid is only sixteen years old! He started on YouTube when he was around eleven, got super-famous, and developed from a child prodigy to a musical genius. And still, he regularly uploads simple videos of him playing the guitar on the couch.
He doesn't just do covers of pop songs, though. He also composes his own music, and it's just as good, if not better. Listen to this one. And this one. And this one, too.
