Redstrat8 is the only commenter so far who understood what SamliEnder is saying. It's great these girls are talented musicians, and I hope they have long, happy, successful lives. But there are hundreds, maybe thousands, of kids like these two on YouTube, Dailymotion, and other websites. Guitar World could literally make the entirety of every single issue all about youth and kids playing well. This is something for all music lovers to encourage and be happy about, but it, amazingly, wonderfully, isn't unique. I would rather Guitar World focus on other things, and if they're going to give attention to youngsters like this, then maybe they should reserve a special column in every issue so that the innumerable young talents all get a hat tip.

Well, I think that talent wins out, whatever the age. I, for one, am very proud of their expertise. Charlotte is doing things I can;t do yet, and I have been playing for a while........

Why can't guitarworld stop posting things like
"15-Year-Old playing Joe Satriani", "14-year-old playing Eruption", "11-year old shreds at 250bpm"..."1-month-old infant plays triple-neck guitar with bandaged eyes"?

Wow -.-
Who cares how old someone is who performs this stuff?
There are thousands of these song covers on youtube, really, it is not that impressive.

SamiEndler didn't criticize the talent or skills of these talented guitarists, nor did he make any claims that he is a better musician than them, so your request that he post a video of himself playing makes absolutely no sense. You completely missed his point.

But...
Even though he did not criticize their guitar playing, let's assume for a moment that he did. Does someone have to be a better guitarist than the one they're criticizing for their criticism to be valid? Have you ever criticized a guitarist or musician who was better than you? Did you have the right to? Have you ever criticized a song you didn't like? Could you write a better song? Have you ever watched a movie and thought that it was no good? Could you make a better movie?
Do you see what I'm getting at?

She's here because she's talented. What's wrong with showcasing talent? The fact that she's doing things on a guitar at age 15 that most people can't do after many more years of practice is definitely impressive.
