Who is this girl?

She plays a wicked stick and slays a hard number.

Her name is known only as Tina S.  She’s 14-years young and she rocks.

Five years ago, the guitar prodigy made a minor splash with her remarkably dexterous performance
of Ferdinando Carulli’s Andante at the tender age of nine. 

She has since traded in her classical guitar for a custom Vigier Excalibur model, and ditched Carulli in favor of Van Halen.  Taught by teacher Renaud Louis-Servais who shot and posted the above video, Tina makes playing a cover of Eddie Van Halen’s Eruption appear convincingly effortless while looking bored and seemingly unimpressed.

The Internet darling is also tearing it up on YouTube:  3 million hits in four short days.

That’s all we know.  That’s all anyone knows.  Well, What…ever.

You go, girl.  Everyone else keep practicing.

    Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. With thanks!
