karmachameleon: She's a terrific guitar player with great articulation and chops to spare. She even manages to get down a lot of the feel of the piece, which is even harder than getting down the notes.To the hipsters knocking her or the piece: we get it. You either don't play the guitar and therefore don't know what you're talking about, or do but can't come within 100 miles of approaching this level of skill and are pretending not to care. And dorks, it's not a "song" and was never intended to be one. It's a solo showcase, it's meant to be flashy and turn heads, and when it was released nobody had done anything remotely like it. The fact that we've since heard it a thousand times by a million other guitar players is a testament to its power. That's why it's so revolutionary - it was a game changer, period. And it doesn't get any easier to play with the passage of time.To everyone else, it's impressive to see a kid put in the kind of work it takes to reach this level of skill. We should be encouraging that, not disparaging it. Kudos to her, I hope she keeps it up and learns some cool guitar faces to go along with it.
danielscissorhands: I'm not a Van Halen fan, but that was very well said.
factoryconnection: Here's the same girl playing classical/flamenco style... when she was 9.
cabbyman: Impressive playing to be sure.When she starts creating it herself then I'll be truly impressed and will listen just as intently.Until then I'll listen to the original./GTFO my lawn
padraig: She's a great guitar player and all, but damn, am I the only one that thinks that this does not even register as music ?Does anybody actually finds this pleasant to listen too ? There's no melody, no rythm, nothing that could even remotely be considered as a song. So, although I can see that she's tremendous, I've really love to see her play something a bit more ear-pleasing.
