Jacqueline Mannering – Raining

She hails from Blackheath, England and is only 19 years old. She is also a self-taught guitarist who is a southpaw that plays right-handed.

From Berry M:

If you haven’t heard of her, don’t worry, it’s probably just because you haven’t been looking in the right places, and perhaps you’ve never witnessed the art of Guitar Shredding!

Jacqueline, from East London, posted her first guitar playing video – a solo version of the classical/rock standard, ‘Canon Rock’ – in 2006 when she was just 14.

The sight of such a young girl playing the guitar with such speed and style immediately caught the imagination of the online community and, before long Jacqueline’s video had picked up nearly half a million views.

The success of this first video led to features in lots more online charts and Jacqueline posted more videos on YouTube featuring her solo guitar playing – mostly recorded at home with a simple webcam.
