Hey all. Have you noticed that there are virtually no good female guitarists? I have never seen any female virtuoso's/shredders or anyone that plays remotely fast, or is famous (not meaning that you are only good if you play fast). Does anyone know of any? The only ones I have seen are sucky girls with terrible gear around my town.

my friend is a shredder.

but she's like avril; can't read music, can't name a chord.

i did see an article about this one girl, whose name escapes me, in guitar one or world or sumthin. i'll come back to this later

why is this in the modern rock thread?


Because it is a subforum of "Bands and Artists" I put it in bands and artists because of the relevancy of having it be related to other performing people.

Seriously, I saw on TV this one woman playing classical guitar and she blew me away. She was a master! And yes her speed was amazing.

Yeah I don't know which one but you are talking about the Wilson sisters. I thought they used a male guitarist for the real work, if I'm not mistaken.

Well if your talking Metal/Rock guitarists your right there arent any.. That are well known, but i think its definitly harder for chicks to get into that sortof buisness(the serious guitarist buisness that is) But in other genres there are, for instance Blues.

I think Ann Wilson was the guitarist. Nancy was the vocalist (maybe I have it backwards). But they did use additional guitarists.

I was going to mention bonnie raitt as well. It seems that most capable female guitarists are in country, blues and folk. Me likem Emmy Lou Harris, but she's mostly a singer.

Well think about it, how many male guitarists are there? Say, for example, 10 million. Then how many virtuoso's/shredders there are? Say 10 thousand. Then how many of them are famous? Say 10. So say there are a tenth as many female guitarists as there are males, there'd be 1 million female guitarists, and one famous female virtuoso/shredder.

It's just an example. I mean, there are more male guitarists than females, so it's only natural that there'll be less brilliant female guitarists than there are brilliant male guitarists. But proportionally, it's probably the same.

well im trying iv owned a guitar for a year and have been getting lessons for a few months i dont think im bad but im not necessarily good either i guess ill go practice now

i think there are too many housewives in the world. lazy women who cant be ****ed to get of their fat arse and get a job. thats why there are no girls in rock and that is why there are no good female guitarists. i suggest we throw all the housewives into a giant pit pour petrol on them then burn them

The VAST VAST majority of female musicians I know concentrate only on voice and/or piano, nothing else.
