Move over, Eddie: Teen girl shreds Van Halen cover
Yahoo ^ | 5/22/2013 | Mike Krumboltz

Posted on 05/22/2013 1:20:18 PM PDT by mountn man

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.

I like to catch covers that people do of artists. Some of them, like this girl, are very impressive.

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

I hope she avoids the terrible things he’s done to his body.

Four years ago she was better than most. Today she has to be up there in the legend level.

I left a post on her Youtube site.

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.

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.

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.

Let’s see her bust out La Villa Strangiato. OK, she’s still good, though. I taught Lifeson, Page and Hendrix in case you were wonderin’.

Lots of "creative" people out there, with no talent of their own, who then have the talented ones perform their stuff.

She has and is developing her talent. As for her creativity, we shall see.

Whether you like her or not, Celine Dion doesn't write her own music. In fact she has done some very good covers of other artists stuff. Such as Tina Turner, Journey, Heart, Eric Carmen...

Very true, and they all experience various levels of success or failure. She is very good and I am certainly impressed.

In his award winning memoir Keith Richard’s ghostwriter writes that he could never figure out a couple of Scotty Moore’s licks on Elvis’ records, and Scotty wouldn’t tell (read the book, I don’t remember off the top of my noodle what they were). Finally, Keef figured out one of them, but there is still another one he can’t crack.

This chick does pretty good, fast fretwork. But like so much of that type of playing, which used to be called ‘Japanese guitar’, it is content free.

Bingo. She is only 14 so she has time. But let’s hope she finds her own thing and creates something and doesn’t just copy.

I think it was Guitar World who published tablature of Eruption in the early 80’s. EVH was po’d and it’s not that hard.

I always enjoyed watching Frank Zappa jam with a lit cigarette under the strings.

Yes - I watched the video of her when she was 9. Classical is best to learn proper finger formations. Helped my bass playing when I was 17.
