Taimane Rocks

Had a great time hearing Taimane Gardner play yesterday. Advanced players will be interested to know that she plays a custom 8-string Kamaka Tenor ("Liliu VIII") strung with only 6 strings. It's tuned GCEA, with the G and C strings doubled. The extra space surrounding the E and A strings gives her more room for solo work. Here's a nice video profile with some close ups of her technique.

Taimane has put together several medleys that are quite ingenious...and beautiful. This one is Led Zeppelin Meets Beethoven.

If you get a chance to see her, don't miss it.
