Gabriella Quevedo - 60s Plus Music Revivalist On Guitar


UP TO 1,500 VIEWS

Pop songs from the past will never go sour. Like the new vinyl record impressions today, being reproduced and sold again in the music market place; past pops too are being played for different reasons. 

Here's one fine young lady who's been reviving senior pop music like vinyl records. She's Swedish, sweet and at 24 has 1.4 million subscribers on her YouTube channel - Gabriella9797 - with over 210 million views. 

Below are three YouTube video examples. Gabriella Quevedo is making a name for herself with recordings where she plays 60s/70s music with her simple acoustic guitar. But the song interpretation... Wow. Check her out.

(The Beatles) 'Here Comes The Sun' - Gabriella Quevedo
YouTube Video - Gabriella9797 [12 million plus views].

George Harrison went to Eric Clapton's garden, fed up 
with signing forms, borrowed his guitar and wrote this 
song, out of 'plein air'... ['Abbey Road' album - 1969]

(Eric Clapton) 'Tears In Heaven' - Gabriella Quevedo
[3.4 million plus views]

Written in 1991 after his 4 year old son's tragic accident, Clapton
composed this piece with Will Jennings ['Titanic' song, etc]. 
Who would have thought this is a 90's composition. 


(Led Zeppelin) 'Stairway To Heaven' - Gabriella Quevedo
[9.1 million plus views] 

Jimmy Page and Robert Plant composed it and this song
became the most popular rock song of all time. Recorded
in 1970/71 it is 8 plus minutes long.

Videos - YouTube recordings.
Thank you Gabriella.

Brother, for me I like to know the artiste well enough to comment.
At least my mind is set with my opinion.
Just at random I listen - HERE COMES THE SUN and TEARS IN HEAVEN.
Honestly, she's good and expresses well.

TAN TEE PENG [GUITARIST] said...

Very good guitar playing.
Very accurate picking of the Beatles song.
Excellent chord work.

I have the backing track for HERE COMES THE SUN.
Will try to play it one of these days.

MICHAEL LEE from SYDNEY AUSTRALIA said...

I like the rendition of HERE COMES THE SUN.
I think this is a nice way to revive 60s music.
The other two to me are just classical guitar renditions.

JIMMY CHNG - ['DECIBELS' GUITAR GROUP] said...

Wow, what a delight watching and listening to her playing the acoustic guitar so fluidly and effortlessly. I've just become an instant fan of hers.
Thanks for posting, Andy.

HORACE WEE [GUITAR LEGEND] said...

Plays very well.
Her good looks are also an additional attribte.
The present generation should be thankful for the wealth of music that was create in the 60s and 70s for them to draw upon.

She is very good bro.

AUDIE NG [SILVER STRINGS] said...

Good acoustic guitar
Simple and nice.
Only no vocals.

JONNY V [YOUTUBE] said...

Great job! Just curious, how many times did you you have to start filming over until you made zero mistakes? Or are you just that good and don't make mistakes? Haha. You are an amazing guitar player and make it look so easy. I love watching your videos.

E. DIAZ [YOU TUBE] said...

The sadness associated with this one of a kind classic is well represented by her talent... And yes Gabriella's play is like one of those dreams that you hate to wake up.

KINSICHO [YOUTUBE] said...

It was artists like Tommy Emmanuel, Sungha Jung, Andy McKee and Kotaro Oshio which Gabriella met in real life a few years later.

She has been a guest artist on their concerts in Sweden and Germany. Gabriella has visited and played in different countries like Germany, Norway, USA, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and China.

She has been on interviews on TV and radio in Sweden and been interviewed by different Guitar Magazines around the world...

Thanking everyone with a short note.
Appreciate that most of you read the post and replied.
I was watching Ms Gabriella's videos and was attracted to her style, versatility and ease of play and as JIMMY CHNG puts it, 'so fluid' with her effortless rendition of the pop songs she interpreted.
The best way to revive 60s music says MICHAEL LEE.
YES, Michael is a guitar expert himself.

Again, thank you all.

Was paying close attention to her style and passion and yes, she is very fluid in her guitar playing. However she has rather spoilt her rendition of Here Comes The Sun with her guitar slap. This destroys the moment which the song is setting. Sorry I'm very judgemental but some songs are just not to be tampered with. Overall I am glad that we have left a treasure trove of wonderful and meaningful songs and that our young people are really looking at them with the same passion that we do or should I say did. Play on Gabriella and keep them coming. Thanks Andy for highlighting up coming talent. 👍👌

Oh Cedric a very professional comment indeed.
I learnt from you too, 'her guitar slaps... destroys the moment...'
Yes, I can understand your feelings here.

Thanks for a most enlightening piece of advice.
Hope Gabriella reads this comment.
