I was scrolling through the in-flight movies on a flight from Singapore to Melbourne when I came across Michael Jacksons "This is it" and thought "why not". Half way through "Beat it" I suddenly paid very close attention to this diminutive blonde girl laying down this absolutely stunning solo that both laid bare the intimate structure of Eddie Van Halen's famous work, and displayed an amazing level of control and feel.
All of this is to say that Orianthi can really play guitar. She has the familiarity with the instrument that tells you that she is going to be one of the worlds top guitarists.
Now to do that she has to make her name, get experience, sell records. This is a pop records with a really, really good guitarist playing on it, which lifts it up from its genre. Plus she can write pretty good songs. I bought this record, I like it and am looking forward to it being the beginning of a large collection of Orianthi's work.Believe
