Hello, my name is Liu Pinxi. But I'm known by my nickname Yoyo. I was born in Hubei Province, China on the 12th of December 2006. I'm currently 10 years old. I first started music studies by taking classical guitar lessons at the age of six. After just one year of practice I moved on to the electric guitar.
Whilst learning to play the electric guitar I became fascinated by the more technical guitar players. I learned from them and this is reflected in my own performances. I love playing guitar and displaying the skills that I have learned. I like studying the techniques and tunes of well known players like John Petrucci.
My prowess on guitar got me invitations to perform at China's prestigious Shanghai Musical Instruments Exhibition in 2015 and 2016. The exhibition is second only in size to the world renowned annual NAMM show held in California.
I was also invited to perform by Guitar China at Guitar Spring Evening 2016. Guitar China is the biggest online guitar community in China. The Chinese pedal manufacturer JOYO were impressed by my performances and invited me back to the Guangzhou International Musical Instruments Exhibition as a guest performer.
I still continue to grow as a player by practicing and performing. Some of my performances were recorded on video and these have been making headlines on Chinese video web sites with videos receiving more than 20 million views. I am also getting noticed on western sites such as Facebook and YouTube.
