No.

Look, I like what this guy is doing, but Talent is the natural ability to learn something faster than average. You know, in a group of people who are learning the guitar, this one kid pick up everything a lot faster than the rest. That's when you say: Gee, that kid has talent!

I'm getting ******* sick and tired of all those musical snobs (especially metalheads, unfortunately) who go around like: Hurr you need ********* of talent to play this **** . No, you just need a lot of practise. Talent only helps.

People who don’t work hard don’t have the right to be envious of the people with talent. People fail because they don’t understand the hard work necessary to be successful.

there's no such thing as talent. really it is just skill that you have worked hard enough at to become good at. passion is what will get you there along with the work.
there is also a term called "gifted" which is different. being gifted usually means you have been given amazing abilities or skills which you were just born with and didnt work hard for. like when you see a 9 year old who paints amazingly well, but this cannot be compared to someone who went through years of training and hard work as well as dedication to become good. gifted people's work is nice but in reality, it isn't fair that they didnt have to work at all really to get good at their skill wheras others work through trial and error over years. i just though it'd share that with you

Supposedly Talent is overrated and with enough hard work and practice you can be as good as someone who is naturally talented.

though to reach elite levels it will supposedly take 10,000 hours. K. Anders Ericsson and Geoff Colvin have written on this subject.

Just in case any of you fellow FJers felt that you'd missed the boat on that dream of yours.
