I honestly don't know about you all, but the way that little girl sings makes me twitch like crazy. It starts out nicely enough, but once you get to around the 15 second mark, it goes from a nice Father Daughter Duet to something that makes you scream because of the high pitch she screamed in those parts. In the end of that commercial when she screams "HEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRT!", caused me to really twitch and moan at how unbearable it was, and this is coming from someone who can sit through a whole Gyorgy Ligeti composition (that's what I get for being such a huge fan of 2001: A Space Odyessy.)

Because all children love to sit with dad and sing holiday songs in the tree lot. It's a hip new tradition. And they don't sing the same-old; they sing ethnic pop.

Wow, I didn't notice the tree lot until you pointed it out, of course, I really couldn't notice the tree lot simply because because I was too busy screaming for the squeak to go away.

Apparently, this father-daughter team is some sorta Youtube sensation.  They've even appeared on the Ellen Degeneres Show.  I dunno why.  I don't find them obnoxious---just nothing special.

At least it's short. And more tolerable than last year's Pomplamoose.

Pompla-Who?LOL
This is basically the same type of cheap-ass music video format Hyundai used last year, only without 'La Moose of Pomp'.
This means, either they are now too big for Hyundai, or too obscure.

Yeeesh, maybe they are better than the child-people Pomplamoose, but not by much. Luckily I haven't (yet) seen the dad/daughter duet on TV, maybe b/c I don't watch children's programming.

Whenever I run into ads with awful singing like this (see also the Truvia and Citi ads) I have to go to YouTube to get some Ben Orr (late of The Cars) therapy. RIP, Benny, a truly great singer (and sweetheart of a guy). Pretty soon, I have forgotten all about how annoying these talentless schmucks are.

I am way beyond tired of all this Christmas caterwauling, and it's just begun. We've got over half a month left to listen to this insufferable sh*t. Constant, shoved in your face, you can't avoid it entirely unless you want to avoid every form of media known to man. It's on the radio, television, even the internet. I am thoroughly disillusioned.

Why didn't the guy re-string the guitar so it would be left-handed?  It's gotta be weird being left-handed and playing a right-handed guitar.

Hmmm...I don't play the guitar, so I'm wondering what difference it would make.  I guess I'd have to know why the strings are placed in the order they're placed in, to begin with.  Is it easier to play one way than the other?  Is ergonomics involved?  It seems like maybe it was just a random decision to place them in the position they're now conventionally placed in.

When you're holding the guitar and looking down at it, the order of strings is typically low to high pitch-wise (E A D G B E).  This guy has a right handed guitar and is the strings would be in conventional order if he was playing it right handed, but he's playing it left handed and the strings are in reverse order (E B G D A E).  You can tell by the thickness of the strings .. the thicker strings should be up top but they're at the bottom.

Hendrix did the same thing as far as playing right handed guitars left handed, but he restrung the strings to where the low E string was first for the conventional string order.

Yeah, I see that they're backwards.  But could it be that that's simply how he learned to play the guitar?  That is, is there anything inherently better about the E A D G B E order?

The only thing I can think of, is that maybe it's easier for an instructor to teach him when the strings are in the conventional order.  But a lotta people are self-taught.  Maybe "backwards" is simply how this guy taught himself.
 
Seems Dick Dale plays the same way.

I'm left handed, but I've actually never understood this idea myself. I think the left-handed guitar would make more sense for a right-handed person. Yes, with a normal guitar, you're strumming with your right hand, but the actual complex part is done with the left hand. Maybe it's because we opted for a cheap normal guitar when I started playing, but I've always felt that my left hand gets more of a 'workout' than my right hand.

Yeah he does. That's a left handed guitar too, unlike the commercial dude's.  I can't say for sure if it's advantageous to play conventionally or not, but it is more prudent as far as teaching or being taught goes, and for reading tabs (though if you can learn stuff by ear this one's a moot point).

Same here.  When I got my first guitar I was insistent on getting a left handed one (since up until then I played air guitar left handed LOL), but either none were in stock or the price was too high so I settled on a right handed Fender Strat.  And you're right, especially when playing lead guitar your left hand is busier.  I'm not very adept at fingerpicking, which may be attributed to being a southpaw, but other than that I don't think the learning curve was any steeper than it would've been learning to play left handed.

I'm right-handed and have always played air guitar that way.  I've tried playing left-handed but it just never sounds as good.

Well, I really hate to criticize this commercial because the little girl is cute and talented, but OMG, I hate it!  She seems way too full of herself and even tho she isn't a bad singer is NOT as cute and talented as she seems to think!  Those facial expressions completely nauseate me!!!

The reason this commercial bothers me so much is because it's high-pitched and LOUD.
