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 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.
