The Great Kat - Beethoven's Guitar Shred
TPR

Wow! Very rarely does a DVD come along that inspires the old "You'll have to see it to believe it!" But such is the case with The Great Kat's Beethoven's Guitar Shred, an amazing display of speedy guitar wizardry from a player named one of the "Top 10 Fastest Shredders of All Time" by Guitar One Magazine. Katherine Thomas is a graduate of Juilliard and a violin virtuoso but when she pulls on fishnet stockings and squeezes into her revealing lace-up leathers she becomes The Great Kat, hell on wheels with a Flying V. Beethoven's Guitar Shred presents Kat's work through seven videos including a super-quick take on the already fast-paced "The Flight of the Bumble-Bee" and a metal-meltdown version of Paganini's "Caprice #24." Kat slices and dices the Paganini composition with precision on guitar but she also plays a violin part that makes Charlie Daniels' fiddle-off with the devil on "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" look like a molasses-dripping contest. The Great Kat plays these seven pieces so fast that they go by in a heartbeat and while technically this is not a "teaching" video there are plenty of close-ups of her fretwork that could be quite helpful to aspiring guitarists if watched repeatedly in slow motion. Otherwise metal heads will love what's presented here in both musicianship and eye candy; with her face painted and her waist-length hair flying as wildly as her fingers The Great Kat makes for a striking figure. Kat does a version of Beethoven's "5th Symphony" here and no, it won't have the long-dead composer rolling over in his grave; more likely he'd be wishing he could join the band.

Get it here.
