On Monday, a girl named Tina S. posted a video of herself playing guitar to YouTube. Not especially uncommon for the website, but the video this week has received nearly 3 million views.

What makes Tina’s video special is that she’s covering Van Halen’s “Eruption,” often cited as one of the best and most difficult guitar solos in history. Also special is the fact that she nails it:

While her peers were no doubt developing their Guitar Hero video game skills, Tina was learning to play the real thing. Her YouTube account shows that she’s been playing guitar for years – at least since she was nine years old. Past videos show her covering The Eagles, Bon Jovi, and Guns N’ Roses.

Eddie Van Halen has not yet commented on the girl’s prowess. However, Eddie’s son Wolfgang Van Halen, the current bassist for Van Halen, has praised Tina via his Twitter account:

    So what! My 6 year old grand-daughter taught herself to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star! Seriously, Tina may appear bored but that may be because playing such a complex riff was far too simple for her. What a talent.
