Why cut short? Very good, but why the weird edit?

colinspooky: Very good, but why the weird edit?


I didn't go to YouTube but from the description below the video, it would seem that it's being used as an advert for "her teacher Renaud Louis-Servais "

Great job, great feel, great song.
 
2014-04-30 10:53:04 AM
not a difficult solo, but she played it well - what she played of it.
 
2014-04-30 10:58:18 AM
her timing was a bit off on a few spots, but, yeah, she can play, that's for sure.

That's the surprise for me.  Usually the younger musicians can manage the technicality but that solo (and Gilmore's playing in general) is all about feel.  And she's got it.
 
2014-04-30 11:48:07 AM
Well, she didn't slide straight to the 24th fret for the high E at the end, she hit the 22nd and bent it. Maybe there's hope for humanity. Let's take it from the top and this time stop at the 21st and BEND THAT SUMMABISH.

Pretty good.
 
2014-04-30 12:35:12 PM
Yes, enjoyable. However, I like this young girl's version better.

She gets points since this looks like she just set up the camera, started the backing track and played. The link seems to be an ad for the guys guitar lessons. So looks a more pro job.

This girl is definitely a prodigy but there's something missing from her. Paul Gilbert has joked you can't play a solo with a straight face, you gotta have an O face to go with it. She plays the most amazing solos with the deadest, most expressionless face I've ever seen. It's like the girl ain't feeling it.

I wonder if it's the girl we've seen a couple times before playing Eruption and some other song? {plays video} yep, that's her.

This one has better feel, TFA had better technique, and was playing the correct pickup (1) instead of (5) like the girl with the blond strat.

But both sound terrific.

She's technically too young to have developed an 'O' face yet.

Here's Juliet Valduriez's version.

She's got a handful of other videos in a variety of styles (compare this to Gimme Shelter, for example). She has a way of making me feel bad about never starting with six strings.
 
2014-04-30 03:05:51 PM
Yeah but we all can agree that Comfortably Numb does contain the best guitar solo ever right?
 
2014-04-30 03:14:56 PM
I've seen her in other videos when she was younger. It's good to see her progressing. I hope she begins to use that talent to write songs for herself

We have a winner. Of course, any teenager in the 2010s who can knock out Iggy, Floyd and Motorhead (who have as many female fans as Rush) is going to sound good to me.

I saw two ends of the spectrum in these comments: First, the capo using puff pastries. At the other end, the 24 fret having gymnasts.

I'm off to buy an Ibanez and slap on a capo. I think the sound might open a wormhole.

The Pulse performance is still my absolute favorite live rendition of this song. In fact, pretty much the entire Pulse Live album was killer.

If Aussie Floyd is ever in a city near you, go. Their guitarist is impeccable.

I prefer the 'Money' solo, but Numb is definitely up there.

Yet Brian May could hold a deadpan lecture on astrophysics while belting out a Queen solo.  Different strokes, I guess.  I did detect a little sneer a few times, so there's something going on there.

By no means is this an attempt to diminish the young lady's accomplishment, but I found a different cover of the solos that blew me away:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2-uklN0ADQ

If she set up the camera, she set up the camera on an active fault line during an actual two and a half minute long earthquake. in the 4.0-5.0 range.

This. Good to see some wippersnappers still have good taste.
 
2014-04-30 09:53:20 PM
Both were excellent renditions indeed but lets throw in the real one shall we?

I think I originally caught this on the Palladia channel a few years ago. It starts at the big solo...

Overall, B+. Way better than I can do, but it was like Diamond Darrell doing the solo: too many pinched harmonics on the completely wrong guitar.

15? Cool. That said, anything by Pink Floyd or The Grateful Dead instantly cures me of insomnia.

Technically she is hitting the notes, chords and progressions, but it is by rote memory. She does not understand what she is playing, the context with the rest of the music or how to inflict emotion.

Yeah that was scary good, and it perfectly illustrates the concept of soul.

You can play the music technically perfect, but that subtle difference of soul is what makes great performances great. Michael Jackson was asked why he was such a good singer, and he replied that he meant every word he sang.

It's called 'feeling threatened'.   I'm a drummer, and used to visit a drum website pretty often, forget which one.  There was a guy on there who used to be Joe Critic of any youtube drum video posted.  Then he posted a video of himself and it was so average that people just tore him up.

The same with this guitar stuff...
 
2014-05-01 04:45:34 PM
One of the qualities of David Gilmour's guitar work that sets him apart and gives him a unique voice is his use of stops and silent pauses to accent passages. She hasn't grasped that yet, as she uses sustain when Gilmour would mute his instrument at times building anticipation for what comes next. Otherwise, well done.

True but chalk that up to youth. In another 10 years she will be feeling it and understand more about the instrument and what Gilmour does. Right now, she's just trying to get through the song.
 
2014-05-01 06:19:20 PM
Stop trying to make an exact comparison of this young girls' playing to David Gilmour.  Of course, he's much better.  On the other hand she is fifteen.  Who among you could play like that at fifteen?  She is pretty damn good and may be able to make a good living with her guitar.  I'd pay to see her tonight.
