Quote from: Johan on December 27, 2014, 12:42:54 PMFrom a purely technical perspective yes, from a musical taste perspective though things are a little more subjective, but that's a discussion for another thread. But seriously, I can't put my finger on this girl. There is something not really right going on in these clips. I means she's obviously got fingers that's for sure, she's like a machine on that guitar. And that's what I can't sort out. She is like a machine. Even the clip where she's doing slower more 'feeling' type stuff seems very robotic to me. Believe me I'm not putting this girl down. I think she has an amazing amount of aptitude. I tend to avoid using the word talent as a rule because everyone seems to define what talent is and isn't differently. This girl has tons of skill and aptitude which is very impressive. But she doesn't really look like she enjoys what she's doing at all in any of these clips. Its like these songs are just homework for her or something. Like she no more gives a rats ass about Eddie Van Halen and the music he created than a student writing a history report gives a rats ass about Thomas Edison. FWIW, I'd be interested to see what she plays when the camera is off and no one is watching. I'd like to see what she plays when she wants to play for her own enjoyment and nothing more. That's the clip I want to see. I'd also like to see her play her own music instead of someone elses. Covers of other people's stuff is fun and all, but Eddie VH and Steve Vai didn't get where they are by playing covers.
