Talent is natural. Skill is acquired.

I wasn't born knowing how to play guitar.

Tina is good no doubt. But I personally consider her more talent than a gift of being able to play. I've watched all her videos and she is technical in every riff but there is no feeling to the way she plays. Not saying she's bad at all (quite the contrary) especially at her age. But she's no Jimi Hendrix who played with heart and had the gift.

I get to decide what my life looks like, not the other way around.

This in my opinion is a gift. Just wait for it. She was 8 IIRC when this was filmed.

I expect you'd need to post video of her as an infant to convince me.

And call it talent or gift or both. Don't really care honestly. But all of these kids are under 14 and do an amazing cover of Tool 46 & 2

To be fair, was Hendrix even playing guitar yet at her age? Give her time.
