This, ladies and gentlemen, is Tina. She’s only 14 years old. But close your eyes and you’d think it was someone much older playing.
In this video, she’s playing Eruption by Van Halen. And boyyy, is she playing it. Buzzfeed.com acknowledges her remarkable talent, but also mentioned she looks bored. That is not the look of boredom. That’s the look of someone who’s focused, relaxed and into what they’re doing. The slight head shake at about 8 seconds, the nodding into the rhythm at 33 seconds – when she tenses her face a couple seconds later – that’s passion and focus right there, not boredom.
Her hands and fingers are really swift on the guitar. She’s not scared of it. She also has the confidence to look away from it at times.
The video was uploaded on YouTube on 20th May and is coming close to 2 million hits!
She’s clearly a very talented teen…and humble with it too. Just seems real laid back about it, like she knows no different from what she was born with.
