"She kind of kicked my ass in the studio. I was excited that it sounded so good but kind of [miffed] that she kicked my ass with it. I worked on this guitar part for days, and it’s in a D-minor tuning that nobody plays in, and I auditioned her, and just to try it out, I had her play this guitar part in D minor and as soon as she figured it out, when she laid it down, it totally kicked my part right out of the recording. She’s only 21 and she’s totally phenomenal."
