No matter who you are or what walk of life you come from, chances are you like watching videos of either kids or pets on the internet (it’s OK, we all do). But some of the best viral videos are of kids doing incredible or entertaining things. There’s no shortage of examples of this within the culture of heavy metal music, as well. With all of the metal acts that have found themselves forever immortalized on cyberspace by kid fans, now you can add English hyperspeed power metallers DragonForce into that category. No, we’re not talking about their collaboration with BabyMetal.
A young female guitarist named Tina S has been showing off her skills on YouTube for seven years, starting when she was only nine years old! Now fifteen, the prodigy has been perfecting her skills ever since on both acoustic and electric guitar. Her profile includes all kinds of covers ranging from rock to classical, including songs from metal and hard rock like Dream Theater, Yngwie Malmsteen, Van Halen, and Steve Vai. Her latest upload shows her flawlessly shred to DragonForce’s “Through The Fire And Flames,” from the bands’ breakthrough 2006 album Inhuman Rampage.
While DragonFroce’s fun-loving, over-the-top music is no stranger to criticism from die-hard metalheads, there’s no question that their speed, writing, structure, and composition requires talent. And that’s exactly what Tina S has, as she shows off her impressive skills in the video above. All while showing little to no emotion or concern, as she effortless masters the song, as well as many others in the same casual demeanor. Check out her out for yourself on YouTube for all of her other performance videos.
