I am going to be real blunt here and say what a stupid post.
If that is the only comment you can come up with after watching that vid I just have to give you another........
She nailed that solo and she is 14??????? I have dabbled in guitar off and on for years and I would KILL to be able to play like that and she is nearly 1/3 my age! That is amazing, period. No way would I even try and judge how well she could convey feeling/emotion from one solo, in this setting and this particular solo which is more of a straight ahead technical piece where she puts all the "feeling/emotion" she needs to give the passage life.
Give credit where credit is due.
Having said all that, I understand what you mean in general when it comes to guitar players and the feeling/emotion X type factor which is a big reason Garcia is a personal favorite of mine. I don't know that I have ever heard a guitarist who has SO much to say through music.Edited by Toe - 6/26/13 at 10:23am
