Japanese girls rule!

Another one from the weird covers department — an anonymous Japanese 22 year old girl amuses herself by recording guitar covers and posting them on Youtube. And did I mention she can play? See for yourself:

There’s more where this came from.

    In reference to a classic Seinfeld episode I think I must note that:”She´s got man´s hands!!!”

    No really, I could care less wheater it was a boy or a girl but the look of the hands seems to be a dead give away.

    But then again it makes it all the more authentic late era Ritchie

    It’s a guy! Remember the “Seinfeld” episode where his girlfriend has “man hands”? Those Japanese love to dress up as chicks….

    69; you wrecked it for me! The first time I watched I didn’t get past the legs. Then I read your comment and viewed it again, you’re right about the hands! 🙁

    Yes this one can play.
    One little point, is the guitar fully in tune? Sounds like the D and or G stirng is out. No pun for the G String!!
