It's silly to have to make this kind of distinction imho. A guitar player is a player regardless of gender concepts. However, it's a field that has really lagged behind in many ways in terms of gender parity. There are a host of social issues that cause something like this and these same issues impact other things like how few female movie directors actually get work and win big awards. we have a pretty even split on planet earth between men and women, so one would think that most fields of endeavor would be split down the middle. This is still not the case. Until we reach better parity, I do think it's important to raise awareness that there are amazing players who just happen to be female.

Here is a collection of some inspirational players who, as it happens are not guys smile.gif
QUESTION: DO YOU HAVE A FAVE PLAYER THAT HAPPENS TO BE A GAL?

I've talked about her before, but Sofie Veie is one of my favorites, and she's Danish. Although living in London.

One of my favourites is Lari Basilio, maybe not out and out shred but her technique is superb:-

Sophie Veie is a great example of up and coming players and the growth of the Danish New Wave of players as it were. I'm also a huge fan of another Sophie. You probably already heard this one, but I thought it worth another share smile.gif

She may not be out and out shred but she can when she wants. She's also a lawyer. That's some work ethic there.

I think there have been some good role models helping raise the profile of guitar amongst girls like Nita Strauss and also social media gives an outlet where there is less gatekeeping from traditional outlets of the past.

I found a 20 something woman on Tiktok last night who impressed me with some solid playing, also a young teen girl who does Reddit sessions who shows lots of promise, She got to play with Molly Tuttle recently (another woman who's definitely no slouch on guitar!)

Thanks for the share! She is pretty darn amazing IMHO. Her techinque is killer and her emotive playing is very impressive. Her control over vibrato alone sets her apart. Small wonder she is playing the namm show!!

For a while she was the guitarist of Late Night with Stephen Colbert, and now she's on SNL's big band!



She's also been featured on EMGTv.



Unfortunately, she is not very active on social media so not many people know her.

That's because she's actually "working".

If she's in the house band for a tv show, she's in rehearsal most of the day before the show. In the case of SNL, 3 or 4 days before the taping.

She's impressive for sure. She's evidently working quite a bit so as ken says probably not much time for social media. I hope she does make more time for it though. Would be interesting to follow her through her day and see what it's like for her playing on a big show. Super thanks for the vids!

Here is her instagram
https://www.instagram.com/maddienorice/?hl=en

She is also a darn good singer.
