Tina’s full name is “Tina Setkic”. She was born on April 7th, 1999 in Paris, France. The French guitarist has grown a large fan base on her YouTube channel because of her sensational guitar playing style and skill. She performs very technically difficult solos from well-known guitar masters such as Van Halen, Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd, and even classical composers such as Beethoven.
Tina is a master of a guitar-playing style called “Shredding”. Wikipedia defines guitar shredding as the following, “Shred guitar or shredding is a virtuoso lead guitar solo playing style for the guitar, based on various advanced and complex playing techniques, particularly rapid passages and advanced performance effects.”
From the age of 13, Tina started to focus on electric rock performances.

Tina developed a relationship with guitar manufacturer “Vigier Guitars” and her playing has been publicly noticed by Wolfgang Van Halen, an American musician and the former bassist for Van Halen.
Despite all of her online attention and success, Tina seemed to have disappeared from the YouTube platform for 7 years but has recently made a return to the platform much to fan’s delight. Guitar fans across the internet have been speculating for years reasons why she stopped uploading content to no avail. Take a look at her new upload below:
She attended formal guitar studies at the age of 6 where she began classical training. By just 9 years old she was already performing advanced solos such as the lengthy but wonderful classic guitar solo from “Hotel California” by the Eagles. Her incredible skill level for her age has propelled her into stardom amongst guitar fans and music fans across the world.
During an interview with “theguitarchannel.biz”, Tina said, Of course, the making of a buzz on the Internet with the Van Halen solo and the follow-up of the buzz with my second video is very impressive. But for me, I have not yet started my career as a guitarist.” If you want to see more from Tina, subscribe to her YouTube channel for more great videos.
