Gabriella Quevedo has one of those rare talents that makes her extreme skill look so effortless, you almost don’t realize how extraordinarily hard the task at hand really is. In the video below she takes on The Eagles ‘Hotel California,’ which, I’m sure goes without saying, is no easy feat. It’s always a huge task to do justice to a widely loved and recognized piece of music, and ‘Hotel California’ is certainly one of those songs, but Gabriella’s got more than enough technical skill and natural rhythm to give this classic an impressive new spin.
What is so spectacular about Gabriella’s performance is that she manages to play all the different parts of the song on her one guitar. As her fingers delicately flit across the guitar strings, you’ll notice she’s not just playing the vocal melody and guitar lines, but she’s touching upon the bass line, the percussive rhythms, and the backup melodies as well. Gabriella is effectively meshing together an entire band’s worth of parts and playing them herself, and you won’t find many guitar players who can do it as well as she can.
Since the recent passing of Legendary singer/songwriter Glenn Frey, this performance is even more chillingly beautiful.
