In 2011, she wrote, produced, and recorded her first solo album, Hale Souls, and her explosive guitar chops straddle acoustic and electric worlds, and span a panoply of genres, including jazz, funk, rock, prog, and metal.
Above, watch Menn finger-dance with the devil in “Minor Swing,” the Gypsy jazz tune by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.
In this dizzying display of aural acrobatics, Menn rocks a Stephen Strahm Eros acoustic guitar and a Music Man Silhouette Special electric guitar.
Throughout the bordello-esque mood of the video, which was shot by Anthony T. Perretta and includes hidden rooms and hard-drinkin’ poker players, Menn appears hella casual, even as her ornate picking and lightning licks hit you like a whiskey wake-up call.
Let the nimble pummeling of Menn’s virtuosic guitar kung-fu take you to a happier place.
