Brian,

You should have a section titled..."INSPIRATIONS" so that there would be a place to put videos like this....

And get a glass of wine before you sit down to listen to this...

Yeah Japov, thats why songs are so important, there are musician around the world who kick any of modern musics stars arse.

Even Mark Knopfler who is considered a guitarists guitarist, says he goes to Brazil and somebody in a coffee shop would be better than he is.

But they didnt write sultans of a swing.

Another thing that makes me envious....

When his ring finger and long finger are pressed to the fretboard, his index finger and pinky still move with a lot independence, freedom and fluidity.
I wish that my left hand could do that so well, but it doesn't. emo It just doesn't.

This man was born to play. Like Eric Johnson and his ET fingers.

Hey Sunset! When I was studying music, my piano teacher gave me finger dexterity calisthenics. They really work to make each finger independent. Basically, they’re like this, with many variations. Hold the 1st, 3rd, and 5th finger down on a flat service. Then play 2 t0 4, 4 to 2, etc. Start very slow, but evenly. Gradually increase speed. Then hold down 2 & 4, while playing 1to 3 to 5 to 3 and repeat. Or hold down 1 & 2 and do the same playing with 3 to 4 to 5. Anyway, there’s thousands of variations. After several months of this routine, I guarantee your fingers with be more independent. About a half hour each day.

Best, John smile

Just damn! I can play drums, and I can finger pick a guitar... but I've never been able to make my hands do two different things at the same time on a piano!

I dont know anything about the world of very good and excellent musicians, but she seems gifted to me. That flourish that she did at about 1:40 sounded flawless and gorgeous to my ears.

I think her real gift is in the arranging the songs for her finger picking style. It's like most music, aside from classical and jazz, the genius is creating it, not so much copying it. Most competent musicians can do this, just as most competent musicians can play every note the BEatles ever played, but then there's that little part of they came up with it. It is beautiful finger picking regardless of whether or not its virtuistic

I used to think she was just some random girl, but then i saw her playing with Tommy Emanuel, she seems older with him but still nice to have a celeb endorsement. shes a views machine...

Some folks are born with "gifted fingers"...long spidery fingers like Robert Johnson pictures show...Terry Bradshaw was asked what made him a great quarterback..his answer?? "Have you seen the size of my hands?? All good QBs have coal shovel hands...gift of birth....guess it's simply the same with guitarists who learn to play..they can reach more frets and strings..not like my stubbies at all


And I guess what John talked about... practicing lots...is key in developing the muscle memory that playing with two hands...guitar or piano or flute etc ...requires

I think that is behind that saying about 10,000 hours of practice at anything makes you an expert...or competent or...??

What makes you a great QB today is size, strength and speed, lol everything.

At one time you could be the slowest guy on the team not move an inch and still be a super bowl quarterback, not any more. Even the defensive linemen run the fortyin under 5. Linebackers as fast as running backs.

But I still think vision is what makes a quarterback great. The abliity to find the open man while under pressure, is a gift not many have. Tom Bradys specialty, and he;s 6"5, which alot of teams wont even consider drafting you unless you are 6"5. Smaller guys have made it too, but its less predictable. Hand size yes, important for being able to grip the ball. Have you ever tried throwing a pro football? I can throw it 25 yards if im lucky....

That's why I keep coming back to her videos. She is one of those people who can feel their way through a song and it comes out beautifully because these arrangements are something born within them.

I dont think that she is the same woman who played with TE. That woman's face and facial features appear rounder and blunter to me. Not sure.

Confirmed... > https://galleri.gabriellaquevedo.com/#home

That link is on her youtube page. She does look alot different, strange.

But credit to her, on her bio on her website she doesnt even mention playing with him, and i dont believe her views are because of that. She just seems like a school girl who loves her dad and helps her mom bake cookies.

She does mention him in one sentence here...
