idk.. she kick my ass.. but i kinda suck too.. i cant do those thing like between 6 and 8 seconds
u know?
i just dont get it

Yeah you sound like your being sexist but then it's normally true anyway.
What a **** world it is sometimes.
#5
None of the comments I saw were complimenting her style, they all seemed to be critising her for lack of feeling and for only playing fast, the same as many videos of guys playing.
#6
ouch that was awful
its because any female who plays guitar is automatically considered awesome because theres a shortage.Pplus if they dont look like **** theyil automatically considered great because most guys use their trouser brain.

Most comments were saying to play cleaner, work on accuracy, and to play slower + with some emotion. Just sounds constructive? Not like they are praising her or anything?
#9
if you look at some of her other videos they don't sound as bad as that one though

Most of the comments weren't 'OMGZ A GIRL PLAYING GUITAR' actually...

"O yes i loved it, Shredding Rules and so do you! This drummer gives you a loud 5/5"

I did find this funny though. Drummers eh?
#11
she's not bad at playing the style she wants
people should stop thinking about gender its just overrated

Yeah, I've seen that vid before and noticed the same thing, but I guess I drew the same conclusion as everyone else. Girl playing badly > Yngwie Malmsteen

why should age matter though, i understand she's younger ... but really she can't play fast, she needs to start working on coordination, telling her she's greta may seem nice, but all it's going to do is hurt her playing in the long run

to me she's no different to those people that go on (insert nation) idol and they're convinced they have an amazing voice .... but they dont.

She is good : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQKvyqG7Nc4

And this one, too xD : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCOOa6_aRIM&feature=related

The girl from the first video is not that good, I'm 15 too, age doesn't matter, one guy from my guitar school is 14 and he plays as good and as fast as me, SRV was younger than JV, but he was great =)

well dang, i didn't even watch the video, i just never met anyone who plays the guitar.. and is female lol...
Don't get me wrong, i've played the guitar with female musicians before, and I judge them at musical talent the way i "judge" everyone at musical talent. If they're doing what they like to do, they don't deserve criticism.
#24
If she just sat down and thought some things through, she could be a killer. right now though, it was just horrible, horrible wanking

I saw a Chinese lady playing Pagannini's 24th caprice on classical guitar and it was beautiful. Unfortunately all other girl "shredders" I've seen sound like they are just jamming a bunch of notes as fast as they can. I haven't been looking for girl shredders religiously though so I haven't seen to many.

check out lori linstruth, her bands stuff isn't really to my taste but she's a pretty awesome player.

Quote by insomniac_style
she's better than me, hands down. but she's not got much rhythm, just watched her version of canon rock, a bit sloppy imo


so the fact that she seems to have no idea of key, scales ... or coordination between her picking hand and her fretting hand doesn't bother you?

My ears hurt.

I know like, 5 girls who play guitar, but 3 just started.

Kinda pisses me off, everyone is starting guitar in school this year, and I'm an old player who has to deal with it. They are all high and mighty 'Oh heyyy, I can pwn this guitar' then they suck and say they ruled. Its looks, its all looks.

She sucks so bad. Everyone should lie to her so she does gigs and gets booed off stage.

Why don't you give them constructive constructive criticism ?

OR Simply invite them to jam with you, so you can show them how they should play and not just talk about how they play ?
#36
She sucks... but so do most guys, especially at 15. I think people are being nicer because, well, she's a girl and people are generally more polite to girls.
#37
ive been playing for 3 years and id like to think that im pretty good i cant shred with the best of them and i wont try to, so i dont look like that chick that just epically failed, i can do some legato stuff and a few sweeps but thats as far as im fast playing gos, but i think i do a good job on the statutory ape solo by black dahlia murder but then again its easy =[

It's just because the majority of people who comment on YouTube (and here on UG as well) are young males, who are horny as ****. Any slightly attractive female guitarist is going to get a lot of positive responses, usually followed by "asl?" lol. And who can blame them? I'd shag a girl guitarist, anyday!
#39
Most fifteen year olds that play guitar cannot even approach this from a technical standpoint.

THat being said, both melodically and rhythmically she's all but entirely ignored her back track with the exception of the last note. The things she's running and the notes she's playing are completely irrelevant and sound completely irrelevant. There's also virtually no rhythmic variation.
Just like far too many other shredders (regardless of gender), both famous and recognised and otherwise, she seems all too focused on cramming as many notes as possible into as little time as possible.

A friend of mine is recognised as the best classical guitarist under nineteen in Canada. This guitarist is also a woman.
