OFC Part of my heritage...

Post by trevlyns » Fri Apr 25, 2014 3:17 pm

Just came across this and had to share...

I'm from South Africa originally but now a UK citizen. This music is indicative of the so called 'Township Music' that I grew up with.. simple, repetitive but very catchy :wink:

Besides - there's some serious guitar technique in there too :D

Hi,

Just wonderful. I think I've seen that video before. Too bad they don't identify the woman!

I cant remember where or how I have come across this before, might just be the unconventional technique, but I recall she goes by "Ronnie" and I believe she is a well known street artist in Botswana.

Mesmerizing technique from the guitar lady and sounds well.
Now does anybody know how I can get that into the piano roll?

Hi Trevor, WHOA! She's amazing. I'm glad someone had the good sense to record her-- can you imagine what she might sound like in a studio setting with a little backup? I've never seen guitar technique like that, and it might be my poor eyesight, but isn't she missing her 6th string? Many thanks for sharing this.

certainly does appear to be 5 stringed... But I've heard some amaizing stuff played on an improvised 4 string oil can guitar too :D
