This young gal does an AMAZING job on this Stratovarious cover. NON-fan boys, ignore the content and just watch her form. It's a clinic in effective technique. Notice how her thumb stays planted near the middle of the neck (Almost as if she'd heard me say it 1000 times in our vid chats!) and a nice arch on her fingers, keeping them close to the strings. And that PINKY! Such deft control and precision!

Just really well done. She is in a Metal band of course smile.gif Called MYSTICAL GIRLS which I just found out about. Here is the vid of her playing.

Watching her play Stratovarius is like watching Tom Brady play quarterback; perfect form, flawless fundamentals, cold-blooded efficiency, and TOTALLY BORING.

I agree, their music is a bit more interesting. One fatal flaw though: They are all smokin' hot EXCEPT for the singer. Sad to say, but that's the exact opposite of what you want looks-wise. It's ok to have ugly lead guitarists if they can rip, or a trollish drummer because nobody can see them anyway. That formula gets exacerbated times a thousand when it's a chick band. The singer isn't nearly as good as the rest of the band talent-wise anyway, they should just drop her and try to find someone with a bit more depth and range to her voice. And oh yeah. Make sure she looks like a chick.

Amazing technique!! Her alternate picking and sweep picking technique are so precise and effective. This should be inspiring to have more girls shredding the guitar!
