Just to prove that I’m not inherently anti-shredding, I present to you Orianthi. She is a mind-blowing guitarist and a great singer. I’ve been a big fan of her work even when she’s played with artists whose music I don’t listen to so much.
Here, she plays the late, great Jimi Hendrix’s Voodoo Child (Slight Return). She only sings the first verse, not the second, but that doesn’t bother me at all because this is all about the guitar, here. The solo is the entire thing. Also, this is a live video, so definitely watch to see her play.

Nice, but I still prefer Stevie Ray Vaughan’s.
Oh… we’ll be seeing Stevie Ray Vaughan in this series… I promise you that…
Oh, I love Orianthi. I’ve always enjoyed her playing.
This is a great series, I’m glad you’re doing it.
