Ellen Alaverdyan: Tom Sawyer

Tech 21’s Dale Krevens sent us this video, with this note:

“This kid is burning up the internet. We couldn’t be more proud of her – and would still be even if she didn’t use the Geddy Lee YYZ Signature SansAmp. It is a joy to watch on every level and so inspiring. Wanted to be sure nobody misses this!”

Ellen Alaverdyan is a 9-year-old bassist who got her start in April 2020. In this clip, she plays along to Rush’s “Tom Sawyer”.

    Boy Howdy, she’s pretty awesome now on bass; but just wait another 10 years and she’ll be ‘A Monster Player!’ Very Hip Ms. Ellen, please keep it up \m/

    I have a fully original 1978 Guild B-302 bass that I want her to have.
    I bought it new and it’s in perfect condition.
    Have her parents reach out to me.
