  • Hello,
    I would rather hear her playing with a live band as the other percussion tracks get in the way and its hard to tell who is doing what. The conga track is out playing her. Hard to tell what her true style is. Sorry.

  • Megan, great job!  You obviously have some serious chops.

    Debi, this is the second critical comment I have seen you leave on one of the videos.  We are all proud of each other and happy to be part of such an awesome contest so please take the negativity elsewhere.

  • I for one thought Megan’s style showed very clearly in this video and I enjoyed it! Latin is a tough genre to play! Megan listened to the elements and complimented the song nicely, in my humble opinion. Keep it up.

  • You rock, chica!!

  • Sorry that I forgot to mention that she sounds GREAT!!!!

  • I like it!
