Geez, I'm such a chauvinist
"Only just heard of Orianthi today..."
me too... I don't think I've ever heard her play or seen her on Oz TV?..... shame that....
I was in Portland yesterday to see my dad and the traffic is getting worse all the time. I don't envy you.
Hes older than me so there is hope after all lol.
Watch the Highly strung video of Orianthi and Vai. I liked her sound better with her Engl amp and I have a Carvin.
And if the music they made was suddenly being played by fat bald guys ?
I like in the second video she's plugged into a little Roland Micro cube.
Who knows, personally I reckon Tal' S chops are far better than Orianthi's but she was originally sponsored by Santana so she can't be all bad and Tal plays with Beck.
Richie Sambora and Orianthi at Norms guitar trying Tele's and Strats. (I believe Ritchie sold a few gem guitars to Norm)
Been here since 2011, it is atrocious. I am semi retired and the work I do is from home/shop. 18 miles as the crow flies from downtown.
But not just here, both TN and NJ where I have left behind friends and kin say the same thing. And the 'whack' that is how folks drive is universal apparently. Perhaps mostly influenced by little hand held lithium ion powered device with GUI interfaces plastering everyday life. Including driving unfortunately, I digress...
But they never showed Dick Tracy crashing his car from using his wrist radio. Oh, pre GUI...
I practically live under a rock and Orianthi didn't escape me years ago. She has had a signature PRS for a few years too. You need to watch a vid of her practicing with MJ. She was also on the cover of a MF catalog a few years ago with a sparkle blue PRS. She followed Santana on a tour a few years ago too. My wife wants to see her live as inspiration (oh yes, I'm very lucky).
Full disclosure: Not a PRS fan nor a MJ fan, but I am a Santana fan.
It's funny you say that because I think if she was a guy she might be taken more seriously. I saw a video of her doing Voodoo Chile in a packed stadium and she absolutely rocked the place. When you look at the comments under the video all you read is mostly guys knocking her. Either I hear something they don't our maybe I'm just wrong.
She had a goal, put in the hard work, and found a degree of success. Good for her.
Girl's got talent.
She also looks pretty good.
Here's another player to watch for when out and about on youtube.
She's from my town/city. Rich Greek background,
exclusive girl's school, and I know her guitar teacher.
She can certainly play. Why she is with that Sambora guy I don't know.
They've just recently been on holiday here visiting her family.
I take your point, but in fairness I didn't "knock" her or indeed say that she isn't or shouldn't be taken seriously. She's seemingly a very good player in her genre, but so are a great many other people who aren't famous and don't fill stadiums. I suggest that it's her appearance that has been a significant factor in her achievement of the success she enjoys.
To an extent, that's also true of the young, pretty Frenchwoman Laura Cox, whose videos on YouTube I've enjoyed for a while. An excellent and versatile player, but the fact that she's also easy on the eye doesn't hurt a bit.
I agree that pleasing aesthetics help a person to be more successful. Maybe if I looked like Keith Urban I could quit my day job. And to set the record straight, I wasnt accusing you of knocking her. I was referring to the comments made on the YouTube video that I mentioned and that was subsequently posted on this thread by jjudas.
I quite enjoy her content. Good looks and great chicken pickin
