I hate that song.. the local classic rock station has played it to death.
 
2020-07-28 4:10:12 AM  
Cool. She jams it out.
 
2020-07-28 5:44:38 AM  
Nothing wrong with that guitarist
 
2020-07-28 6:10:07 AM  
that was pretty cool for that tired riff. Sophie shreds, this is like Sophie lite.

Subby sounds jealous.

That was some fine shredding.
 
2020-07-28 6:47:46 AM  
Overplayed or not, that song always takes me back to high school.  Cruising around town, with my girlfriend (now my wife) beside me... this album playing on the 8-track.  Didn't get much better than that
 
2020-07-28 7:06:19 AM  
She's very good. I'd love to be able to play a guitar that well. 

/But it's not really all that special.
 
2020-07-28 7:18:18 AM  
I'm impressed by Subby's ability to judge this woman's intelligence just from her appearance (yes, she won the genetic lottery) and guitar playing.
 
2020-07-28 7:28:56 AM  
Hate all you want but that first Boston album is fantastic.
 
2020-07-28 8:57:20 AM  
Perfectly cromulent guitar playing it seems. Better than most, not as good as some.

Definitely in the upper echelon of pretty

I've been playing guitar for about as long as she's been alive, and I'm not ashamed to say that her technique runs circles around mine.

Although, I do look better in purple eye liner.
 
2020-07-28 9:32:03 AM  
If you check out St. Vincent's Instagram, she seems to be having a fun time noodling around by playing Stairway to Heaven and playing along with Steely Dan records.
 
2020-07-28 9:34:46 AM  
She has some original material on her channel.  I rather like this one

When I hear the phrase "shred" I think of StSanders. She was way too good to be a StSanders-style shred.

True and true. Freaking looooove Jamiroquai, who most people only know for "Virtual Insanity," which really only scratches the surface of their talent. So much funk; always great pocket playing.

Apparently that female bassist faced a crowd of skeptical YouTubers who claimed "she's muted on the track, she memorized where to put her fingers but really can't play"... until Jamiroquai flew her in for one of their gigs and had her perform on stage for a tune or two.

I like that there is at least a small subset of kids getting into classic rock music. Gives me hope that there will be interesting new bands for years to come.
 
2020-07-28 10:40:08 AM  
It's so damn BC Rich-y.

I've gotten where anything strat-like, as well as clear drum heads, are basically cheating.

I've become the old, grumpy, music snob I was born to be.

See, that's why I was never able to master a musical instrument: I can't even get the slang right.

Okay she's throwing the British hot scale all out of wack.  Like that one person in school that got an A+ on every assignment.

Watching it now.. she seems pretty skilled.  Fairly attractive.  Like the accent, and her humor.
 
2020-07-28 10:57:04 AM  
yeah a "shred" version always improves a song.
 
2020-07-28 10:57:12 AM  
Nice try.  I don't have to listen to that song anymore.

Yeah, it's not hard to play better than John Dolmayan, be smarter than John Dolmayan, be less bigotted than John Dolmayan.

/but it's cute that she's shouting along to it
//If you want to talk about "child" drummers, JD Beck is my dude


It's a rather simple song and its played poorly to boot. I'd say that about anyone playing it, boy, girl, black, white, ...basicalky anyone except maybe a disabled person. But in particular if it's supposed to be a display of being a prodigy...

She's 10, you dense monster. Then again, I'm trying to make a point to someone who complains about the web site he uses every day on his profile for said web site.

No one said it was the display of a prodigy. You had some predetermined bone to pick.

I love watching her play. I especially like how the videos are pure unadulterated drum mayhem bookended by her waving the sticks at the camera as a greeting.

Both sacrifice resonation for quick attack and decay.  When the right technique can produce the same effect, or close to it.
Not saying everyone should play calf skins and hollow bodies, but I certainly think Miss Airheard would be served playing something other than her purple friend.

Video is 4:11. At 2:38, we get a "Hey, guys, how's it going? Thank you so much for hanging around 'til the end of the video."

Cue "confused dog" expression, as there's more than a third of the video left...?

Ah - it's a goddamned ad. As clearly stated in the Fark comment for the video. Well, fark that.

I wish I had more than one like for that. Overplayed, yes. Of course it is. But there's just something about that guitar part that's filled with hope, looking toward the future with pride and anticipation, even though the subject is a terrible, unrelenting loss, that lasts throughout your life. Both emotions are possible in this song. Go ahead and funny me for being old. It's all still true.
 
2020-07-28 12:34:56 PM  
I'd call that an instrumental version, but I'd also be the first to admit that it's been so long since I've played guitar regularly, I have no idea what constitutes shredding these days.

And she's better than I was, even when I was playing every day of the week.
