This young lady caught my ear a few years ago. This music brings out the emotion in my view. Truly beautiful.

Having said that, for you finger style guys, critique closely. Look and listen closely to her finger pattern. As beautiful as it is, I'm not sure it works with this piece. Any thoughts? It almost sounds out of time to me in several spots. A fairly complex finger style pattern, I like it, but I don't think it's ideal for this one. Then again, it's not my song, is it, it's hers. ;)

Me too Mikey. In fact, any time I watch somebody like Tommy Emmanuel, I've got to ask myself what the hell I'm doing with these guitars, and why even try? That young lady is now 25. In an interview I watched, she was asked when she first pickup up a guitar? Her answer was that she began playing at 12 years old in 2009.:cry: I began attempting to play in the 60's at about 8 years old and there's no remote possibility that I could ever play half as well as she does if I live to be 100. A prodigy!

I can't can't wrap my head around being able to play like that having only picked up a guitar 13 years ago. Just amazing. I guess it should inspire rather than discourage us.:)
