my initial response to these prodigies is usually to the effect of "holy crap" - actually, a less sanitized version

At her age I remember I could play it too - I knew by memory two or three Gilmour's solos...

I'm an air guitar champ

There's no way on earth I could have play "Comfortably Numb" at her age - when I was 15 the latest album that just came out was "The Dark Side Of The Moon."

I can still play the lead to "Time," probably a lot better than I could back then.

I started guitar lessons at age 7. By age 15 I could play just about any song that came out of the radio.....or so I thought.

One of my guitar playing friends had heard about this awesome guitar player that would change the world, or at least the way we played guitar. He wanted me to go with him to a Monkees concert. The Monkees had a TV show that was part comedy, and part fake band performances, why would I go see the Monkees? They sucked! My friend convinced me to go with him to the concert. He wanted to see the opening act, an unknown named Jimi Hendrix.

That show convinced me that I would never be a rock star, and convinced me to buy a broken Echoplex and fix it up. My guitar playing skills peaked at age 17, remained good till well into my 30's. By then I didn't have time to play much and my 1967 vintage Hagstrom got stolen. I still have the Mosrite, though I have played the frets off of it.

I started playing again when my daughter and her friends started jamming (late 90's). My wife got me a shiny new Les Paul for a birthday present in 2000, which I still play on and off. I still can't play near as good as I could at 17.

Some of the best guitar "shredderes" are indeed female.
Perhaps it's their thinner, more supple fingers?

Anyway she appears to be a natural, very gifted player.

Having been in the music businees in the past, I was often amazed at the natural talent of some young guitarist.
