Swedish Guitarist Rocks ABBA’s ‘Dancing Queen’ Using Fingerstyle Technique!
When aspiring Swedish musician Gabriella Quevedo first heard Abba’s famous 1976 hit, “Dancing Queen” played using the acoustic fingerstyle guitar, she was hooked. So she decided to embark on her own acoustic fingerstyle guitar journey and let her passion – and of course her fingertips do the rest. Now with experience, Quevedo did her own arrangement of Abba’s “Dancing Queen,” and needless to say she’s a “queen” that reigns.
Born in Sweden to a father who is a guitarist with Argentinian roots, Quevedo was inspired to pick up her father’s Yamaha at the young age of 12 and give it a whirl – all by herself! This later prompted Quevedo to further explore her newfound passion for guitar.
Quevedo is greatly influenced by Sungha, a musician from South Korean who specializes in acoustic fingerstyle guitar. With 4 million followers on YouTube, Sungha is known for his impressive skills. “This guitar style indeed guided my life into another direction!” she explained in her official bio. Then fast-forward to 2011, after Quevedo got her own online following, a connection helped arrange an invitation for her to meet Sungha and his staff during a gig in Sweden. Quevedo even got the chance to play on stage alongside the famous Sungha!
