I'm a fan- she's got a great melodic style.
I didn't love the drums in this track, but her playing was great.

This thread deserved a revival! I've really been enjoying Nili's playing lately. I just got turned on to her a few months ago. I'm a fan!

I love her playing. She has a really good balance between more melodic and flashier parts, and has different phrasing than a lot of her peers, which really works for me.

Nita Strauss shared this video on her FB page today. It knocked my socks off.

I think it's the freshest shred-style guitar instrumental I've heard in 30 years.

And the video is frakking brilliant.

Just out of an honest curiosity, am I the only person who sees the dancers/choreography as comedic, perhaps even intentionally parodic?

One of the features of great art is that it is open to interpretation. My takeaway from the dancing was more along the lines of "who says you can't dance to shred?" Which is inherently pretty funny. But it also reminds me of the dance face-off in the Beat It video during EVH's solo.

The dancers were from the Cirque de Soleil Michael Jackson show that Nili was touring with.

Other guitarists have tried to blend shred with EDM but I think Nili is the first one to really pull it off.

The similarity to "Beat It" is probably a homage, since she's performed a bit of it in some live settings.


In general I prefer this sort of material from her though. I have that 57/66 set in one of my guitars and they sound fantastic.

There's a name I haven't heard in a while.

Her brother Ethan used to be in a band called Burning Heat, who would play around here often. I think the last time I saw them was when they opened for Michael Schenker at the now long gone Rock Junction in Coventry, RI.

I met Nili and Ethan years ago at an Andy Timmons clinic at the old Matt’s Music location. She was barely out of her teens, and played a note-for-note version of an Andy song with him. We chatted afterwards, and talked of our mutual love of Warren DeMartini while playing one of his Charvel signatures they had in stock.
