I came across this awesome video in guitar centers bluesmaster contest today of Adia shredding on a "guitarolin." It is a violin that sounds like an electric guitar. Its really rockin and thought i would share it!!I looked her up and she is a huge fan of jimi hendrix and stevie ray vaughn.

Any others out there in the contest?

http://www.violinguitarmaker.com/ <--- this is the closest thing I could find (scan down to the guitolin)...couldn't find the video if Adia or if she was playing one like this. But, Welcome aboard Stacylynn!


then I found these:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIpVSbWtcBY <--- I'm guessing this was what she was playing (called a Viper)...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3euLXuaTOUI <--- OK, here's the head viper guy!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFVDdbs7fbg <--- how about Purple Haze?

She needs to work on the microphone technique (back away with intensity) and the guitarolin sounded better without the wah pedal but this is great and she is levels above the average GC Bluesmaster entry candidate IMO.

Thanks for posting the clip phloid! I looked all over and couldn't find her (or a Jimi song on a guitarolin). I kind of liked the wah portion but prefer the violin sound. Her singing is cool along with the song chosen. Not bad for a living room taping...
