Guitar World Year in Review: The Top 10 Viral Videos of 2013
From teen shredders to a guitar-playing bride and groom, here are GW's top 10 videos of '13.
05. Video: 14-Year-Old Girl Plays Electric Guitar Tribute to Vivaldi (Read the full story here.)
This time, we'll re-visit a 14-year-old French guitarist named Tina; you might remember Tina from her effortless performance of Eddie Van Halen's "Eruption."
This time she's performing a piece called "Vivaldi Tribute," inspired by — and featuring music written by — Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741).
I'm not going to pretend I'm a Vivaldi expert, so I'll simply quote the information that was posted with the original video on YouTube:
"'Presto' is the third movement from Vivaldi's 'Summer' from 'Four Seasons.' This version is an extract from Patrick Rondat's guitar adaptation on his 1996 Amphibia album."
Tina, who was filmed by her guitar teacher, Renaud Louis-Servais, is playing her Vigier Excalibur guitar.
BTW: It seems Tina has been 14 for a long time ... Just sayin'!
