She has been endorsed by Santana as his successor. She's good but there may well be better ones yet to be discovered. Very refreshing to see and hear a young female guitar shredder to challenge male domination in this genre. Just thought those into guitars here might be interested.
FE, You're priviledged. he has yet to come to the UK She certainly has the kind of tone, scale and phrasing like Santana. Just hope she does not come to be known as a clone and manages to establish herself in her own light. Sometimes an endorsement is a curse!! There are so many out there who are exceptional and I guess Santana's support hepls her get into the limelight. Also endorsed by PRS of course. Great guitars.
Orianthi is clearly a technically brilliant guitarist. But I'd like to see what she can do with introducing some real melody into her work. There's more to music than just a lot of notes (as Emporer Joseph is reputed to have said to Mozart!).
It's interesting to note that the security staff obviously didn't know the girl - she had to wear her backstage pass to be allowed on stage!
