Are there any good female guitarists? I don't know of any...


edit: Just to clarify I didn't mean this as an insult at all.. and I kinda meant well known ones. For example, whenever I look in one of the five hundred threads about guitar influences, it seems like I never see a female mentioned.
what is the music theory and what does it teach you, like scales, solos, and to build speed???

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.

What do you consider good? Technically clean and fast or just "sellouts" ?

There are probably alot of female guitarists who can shred clean and fast...

The Great Kat is technically proficient, but she's a bitch.

Girls who play the guitar seem to like playing stuff that's easy so they don't have to practice or cut their fingernails. There are a few good YouTube videos, like this one I saw of a chick shredding on a strat. Chicks who play well are out there, but they're not too common. I guess the guitar is regarded as more of a guy's thing.

I agree with you, all female guitarists I know can play their songs good and clean but they are...well... VERY simple. I don't really get that, since I picked up my guitar I felt i HAVE TO improve, you know. And I know alot of people who think like me. Although I never understood that "I don't want to cut off my fingernails" thing.

uh...ok? thanks for your helpful input. i really hope, for the sake of me makin fun of you, that your a girl. and that you have boobs. becuase as was aforementioned, thats the only real hindrance to girls playing is jugs. i dont understand it though. they have so little going on that they can get up and hour early to do their hair, but they cant stay focused enough to learn a pentatonic scale?

oh, dont go there sista'

girls only spend so long on their hair because it gets guys' attention. not necessarily the guys on this forum, most of you guys are different than the average guy. i spend 5 minutes on my hair, thank you. and my pentatonic scale kicks arse

that girl in damone seems alright



noelle leblanc, and she owns (while she is mostly a rythm guitarist, not a shredder)
#29
The Donnas (all of them) are GREAT musicians. I love them a lot. Also, I got into Damone a while back, they have really good, catchy stuff that I love as well. Heart is another great one.

Also, there was this woman my uncle showed me, it was on this site that takes place in this acoustic club in California or something, but she was AMAZING. She was taught by Randy Rhoads while he was still teaching with his parents in Santa Monica. She was REALLY amazing. I just wish I could remember that site, cause it had a great video.

The song was called "Superhuman Powers" or something of thta sort.


Lita Ford was good too. She plays some really good solos.
