The piece is indeed in the St Alphonso piece. But then you get guitarists playing this piece as "Rollo" and in fact the name Rollo is an entirely different piece. The Pancake Rollo on guitar:

This pancake has some of Zappa's guitar parts, but also the marimba parts

Hologram Zappa on stage with live band. So the solos all have to be taped solos. The dictatorial Zappas, Ahmet and Diva, have blessed this show and are collecting half the profit.

She has the ability to memorize huge amounts of music. I think she can pick out every note of a guitar solo. After a few plays it is in her head and she only has to work out the fingering. Not sure she even had guitar lessons. She never uses a plectrum. She had keyboard theory/practice stuff memorized before she was ten.
