Tina S

Australian Guitar - - Feature -

Masters of the cover song are not to be fobbed off when con­sid­er­ing gui­tarists on the scene – par­tic­u­larly not when they have skill like the in­com­pa­ra­ble Tina S. Mak­ing metal mag­nif­i­cent, this French na­tive has some blind­ing tech­nique when it comes to adapt­ing songs that demon­strate her shred­ding skills and per­son­al­ity.

When Tina S metal­li­cises clas­si­cal an­thems like Beethoven’s “Moon­light Sonata” and the var­i­ous works of An­to­nio Vi­valdi, she’s mar­ry­ing to­gether two amaz­ing things – the sen­su­al­ity of hard-hit­ting clas­si­cal great­ness and the dex­ter­ity af­forded by heavy metal. The 20-year-old does of course add her own style to the works of more genre-stan­dard greats like Pink Floyd, Van Halen and Dragon­force, and her shred­ding in these ren­di­tions is per­formed with a steely sweet­ness that is as cap­ti­vat­ing as it is in­spir­ing.

A prodigy who’s played the gui­tar since the age of six, to­day Tina S is a fea­tured artist of the French gui­tar man­u­fac­turer Vigier. With­out a doubt, she’s made more than a mark on the mu­sic scene in re­cent years, and will no doubt have more to con­trib­ute in shap­ing the gui­tar sound of the fu­ture. To Tina S we say, “Très bon, très bon!”
