"Tina S" is a guitar prodigy

I've been following a fabulous teenage performer on YouTube. "Tina S" is 14-years-old and can simply wail on an electric guitar.

Her cover of Van Halen's "Eruption" has 6.5 million views:

Now, she has posted a new piece, a tribute to Antonio Lucio Vivaldi (Italian: March 4, 1678 – July 28, 1741).  It's more of the same magic; though she almost seems bored with her prowess on the strings.

This is mind candy for anyone who has attempted to play at some point in their life. Check out the 4-fret reach, her technique using the pinky finger, and the fact she seldom looks at her fingering and picking positions.

If this girl starts a band and comes anywhere near my part of the world, I'll be checking for tickets.
