[Update: Tina is now (7 April) a 17 year old guitarist!]
[Technical notes from an impressed Steve Ouimette: ““This is just ridiculous,” he says. “Tina has a really aggressive style and a killer vibrato. Aside from the crazy-hard track that covers the entire fingerboard, you rarely see her looking down at the fingerboard, and her right-left hand coordination is incredible. Her picking hand has a snap to it that gives notes an authoritative sound and her ability to shake and bend notes right in the midst of fast passages adds a ton of personality to them.”] From Terra Magnum
I will only add that another strength is Tina’s beautiful fluid playing. It is very impressive and adds distinction to every one of her submissions.
You’ll be hearing much more from Tina S. I’m not speaking lightly. She has the quality in her playing, musical development, and deportment that says “high quality”, “accomplishment”, and “success”. I say this after decades of close experience with and attention to much music…and my record of discerning future “stars” is very good. 🙂
Some folks say, “Why doesn’t she do this?” or “Why doesn’t she do that?” She’s 15 and has reached a level most people would envy. There is plenty of time for her to develop in her own manner and toward her own inclinations.
[Tina S fans…I’ve added a picture on this post, as you can see. I have also added a picture of Tina with John Petrucci on the post about Tina’s cover of “The Best of Times”.]
