Mrs. Smiths?

Nope, not Coconut Cream pies, [although now that I thought of it I'll have to go get one, I have strange cravings]

My rep sent this to me, he thinks she just became an Ibanez endorser [I'm not sure if that's true]. I must live in a cave as I'd never heard of "her", but I have to chuckle. "She" is definitely a character.

Re: Mrs. Smiths?

When I first saw her I thought she was Steve having people on. He is Zappa alum after all.

Funny stuff... Hadn't heard of "her". Really digging that EVH style RG though!

Re: Mrs. Smiths?

I've seen her pop up on Facebook a bunch of times. I don't totally get it. What would give you the idea to do this in the character of an old lady?

I don't get it either, but when you are used to "J rock visual Kei or something like that" , then Mrs.Smith looks pretty 'normal'.

^ Seems like a progressive shtick/act to get attention as a performing artist. I mean in this regard it did the trick. I'm not the target audience and as long as ms Smith doesn't go Di Nero it seems all good.

I agree, if Mrs Smith didn't look like my Grandma, it's just another case of a youtube guitarist not getting many views...

IIRC the Mrs. Smith character predated the guitar performances. Was it cat videos? Something like that.

if Mrs Smith didn't look like my Grandma, it's just another case of a youtube cat owner not getting many views?

Re: Mrs. Smiths?

Hello, this is Mrs. Smith to which you are referring.

I am happy to answer any and all questions so long as they are respectful.

I love Ibanez guitars as you might be able to tell!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Smith
