A 14-year-old girl named Tina S. may be the next Eddie Van Halen.
In a clip recently posted to YouTube, Tina shows off her otherworldly guitar chops with a cover of the solo from Van Halen's "Eruption."
The clip lasts just a minute and a half, but that's more than enough time for her to make believers out of anyone.

Most use a backing track, that they follow along with, and it makes them sound better, by somewhat covering up their sound.
This girl was just her, doing a perfect cover of Eddie's Eruption
A really great cover! It appears that she isn’t even breaking a sweat.
Go to her Youtube site. She has 20 video’s up. One from 4 years ago doing Hotel California. She also has one of doing the theme to The Godfather.
I hope she doesn’t marry Valeria Bertinelli...
Tina S. rocks! Wow that girl can play!
She flat out NAILED it !!!!
Someone needs to call Eddie & tell him they found his missing tone ;)
That girl can play, she looks effortless.
Four years ago she was better than most. Today she has to be up there in the legend level.
That’s great and when she CREATES something of her own like he did she’ll really have something!
Neal Schon from Journey was 15 when he started with Carlos Santana. Eric Clapton also called him, but Carlos called him first.
This girl needs someone like that to call her. Maybe somebody like Satriani. He's already taught some of the greats.
Also, the current lead singer from Journey got his big break, when Neal Schon saw him on Youtube doing Journey covers.
Never get married to a Claymonster.
I enjoy her almost expressionless face. Compare that to the looks of intense effort that most guitar gods show.
Obviously a very talented and well trained young musician. But it's one thing to play someone else's music (which is documented note for note and effect for effect in many many places) and another thing altogether to write something like that in the first place. I say we reserve the "legend" title for the latter.
Why in the WORLD are you posting a link to crap Yahoo. Yahoo is even too stupid to mention she lives in France.
Maybe he thinks Marissa Mayer is hot?
No doubt you are right...BUT...Other than Smoke On The Water, there has probably been not any other piece, in the last 35 years that others have tried to copy...AND FAILED.
She has done...PERFECTLY...what others have failed at.
Now I want to hear her do some Satriani.
She is quite good, but arguably, the most difficult aspect of music is “creating” something that people are willing to pay money to hear.
"Yo guys, check out this video I saw on Youtube."
