14 Year Old Girl Covers A Van Halen Guitar Solo, Makes Your Acoustic Strumming Look Weak [VIDEO]

Here’s a 14-year-old named Tina covering Eddie Van Halen‘s “Eruption” guitar solo and killing it. If you’re like me and the words “Eddie Van Halen’s ‘Eruption’ guitar solo” have no meaning, let me just say: This girl is some sort of guitar wizard.

    Actually, it should have meaning. It’s what Marty McFly (pretending to be Darth Vader from the planet Vulcan) played on his Walkman when he woke George McFly up and told him to ask Lorraine to the Enchantment Under The Sea dance.

    Also, holy crap, this girl is amazing!

    Ah. That’s a cultural touchstone I can relate to! Thanks.

    “Eruption” is legendary, not knowing this track means avoiding rock radio for the last 3 decades.

    She looks bored, like “Humanity has not yet invented a solo a to put a fraction of my power to use.”

    This chick is so metal. <3

    Avoid rock radio? No. Not listening to rock radio? Yes.

    Come at me, bro.

    That’s not boredom – it’s “in the zone” face.

    Actually, that was an original piece of music composed for the movie. Completely different track.

    I’ve always thought that women make better technical guitar players than men – nimble, thin fingers and more graceful movement. If we didn’t have so many knuckle-dragging misogynists making stupid comments, we’d have more quality cover vids like this on youtube. For every 1 awesome cover, you get about 1,000 terrible ones…

    I’m not going to come at you, I’ll come at the public school system for not establishing a proper pop music canon of essential albums to study and be familiar with.

    The 1978 Van Halen album would be on that list.

    As far as “in the zone” faces go, this one is pretty normal. When my brother starts playing, he looks like his mouth is trying to crawl off his face and his nose starts twitching.

  • serena blackcat

    I never learned to shred like that…but I’m happy to see other women living the dream. It’s sort of a vicarious thing.

  • Jim Balter

    The number of important things that the public school system failed to educate you about is uncountable.

  • Jericho McCune

    Any public school system that asked students to study “Van Halen” before about three hundred other albums would be doing them a disservice.

    OK. I have tried to find this girl. She needs to be found! Who is she and how can I find her on Facebook or twitter. Is this real? Seems very hidden and very mysterious. Please advise…..

    She’s 14, perv. Please don’t stalk her.

    She’s French and a kid. Be cool.
