She is amazingly technically adept, I'll give her that. However,
just because you *can* play lebenty-bazillion notes in the span of a
half-second, doesn't necessarily mean you *should*. If I want to
listen to that, I'll grab a cup of coffee and go hang out in the
lobby of my local Guitar Center.
This is the only clip I've seen of her work, though, so maybe other
examples are better. The best parts of this video sound like a pale
tip-of-the-hat to Keith Emerson's "Tarkus". I also tossed most of my
ELP records out quite some time ago, however. As with all matters of
"I'm wasting time worrying about wasting time."
