Girls tend to have lives, and don't spend their whole life in their bedrooms learning, which boys are conditioned to do.

Or that's what I reckon.

what about nancy wilson? there are very great female guitar players but the only thing that keeps them from being legendary is that everyone's too busy paying attention to male guitar players and so our female players are over shadowed...

Art historian and feminist Linda Nochlin wrote an essay that explained why there are no great women artists (visual artists) and I feel that many of the ideas she presented in that essay apply to this question. She talked about how women were always at a disadvantage because they had to have a male guide (typically father or spouse) that led them through the process and they were often left to paint portraits and still life's. Also they had no great tales or myths to make their careers seem legendary, like Van Gogh or Michelangelo. Also, they did not have legendary predecessors to learn from.

honestly, this can be applied to guitar players. Women don't have the same advantages that males to when it comes to guitar. Think about it baby

...Girls are being raised nowadays to be dumb. The media makes pop culture figures like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan famous so girls will idolize them and be just as dumb as they are. The whole reason behind this being that males become the dominant sex in society, marry a woman during adulthood, have kids, and the cycle repeats to keep the economy alive.

Because of this, a large percentage of girls never want to learn how to play guitar because society tells them that bands and guitar players are guys, and that girls should do something more dainty, like cheerleading and choir.

Thankfully, there's always going to be a percentage of people who raise their children to be successful instead of becoming another drone in society. The only female guitarist I know personally is a girl down the street who has been playing for 4 years and wants to go to Ball State to take music theory. As for "legendary" female guitarists, the best you're probably going to get is either that chick from L7 who threw a used tampon at the crowd, or the chicks from Kittie.

I read about this once in Psychology Today. It was actually about why most geniuses are male.

Basically geniuses, or in the context of our topic, legends, use their skill to get laid. You can see how this could work for a rockstar. It doesn't work that way for women. Men are the ones who have traditionally wooed the women. The man must gain the woman's acceptance. Some people think males developed music to attract females.

On the same note, this is why many geniuses peak when they are young (in their twenties). This is because this is biologically when they are supposed to be going out and having seks with the women they attract. Also, this explains the theory that when geniuses get married or entrenched in long term relationships, they lose their genius ability.

One of the article's hooks on the cover page was, "What Bill Gates has in common with a criminal." Or something to that effect. Basically, males use different ways to display their attractiveness to women. Some of those include taking part in high-risk behavior to display high testosterone levels (i.e. balls). Another way is to be a computer genius and become a billionaire. Yet another is to take a guitar and become a rockstar...I think you get the point.

Legendary =/= Skilled.
Legendary = Legendary.

I bet more than half of this site (nothing but musicians) haven't heard of her, ever...

This is true. Again, I need to make a connection to visual artists, but women artists like Rachel Ruysch were more than virtuoso technicians. When you look at one of her paintings you can see the dew dripping off of the plant because it is so realistic and perfect. BUT, this was not some thing that made her stand out. In other words, her technique wasn't enough.

Kaki is fantastic, but it isn't anything we haven't already heard. Michael Hedges was already there long before.

This thread is basicly the same as why hasn't there ever been a black president of the U.S. yet?

Who cares? It's just gender. Where as prez, it's just race. Who seriously cares? We're all humans. That's all that matters.

Now if it was some squirel playing some wicked solo, call me.

From my experience most women aren't inclined to make music a large part fo their life. If they are it is usually in some womanly "acoustic" form that no one with an ounce of testosterone could touch without their balls falling off (Indie I think they call it). This results in nearly every female who picks up guitar choosing the pussified version of the electric guitar, the "acoustic". This also limits them to playing boring trash that they have to SING OVER to stop the listener from falling asleep, and this creates the womanly music mentioned above. A truly vicious cycle.

Hey youre forgetting Dolly! Dolly Parton owns your scrowny little asses! May not be like "insane-steve-vai" legendary, but she IS indeed legendary.

It must be har beeng a woman in this buisness. It doesnt quite cut it just to be ridicuolusly good at guitar. You have to look like a billion bucks as well.

the electric guitar (which i assume you mean by "guitar players") has been around for only a fraction of music history. maybe when it's been around as long as classical instruments, women will start to learn it with more frequency. also, all the stories associated with rockstarism, drugs, all that, probably doesn't appear to women that much somehow.

Most people don't know this but the electric guitar came before the acoustic. Only after a woman laid her weak hands on it was the acoustic guitar born, hence the "pussification". The reason the myth that acoustic is older than electric was due to a massive amount of propoganda spread by Nikolai Kruschev in an attempt to bring the U.S. down musically.
