For the most part, guitar necks are the same width (i.e. nobody makes guitars for players with smaller hands). This probably has something to do with it.

Lucy Kaplansky does some very nice guitar work in her songs.

I wish that we had more great female rockers! I think that it is about time that we did!

No, there is a whole range of 'ladies guitars' out there.

I don't think Michelle Branch is a 'great' guitarist; that is grasping at straws...

Certainly there are female guitarists, but most mentionned are known more as singer-songwriters rather than "great" guitarists.

I have very little time for most of the so-called great guitarists any (excluding Edge, and some others...) but for the most part its musical masturbation.

I'm more of a drummer than a guitarist but I can play guitar (if anyones interested I can put a link up to some of my sounds - let me know). I guess women don't find sitting for hours on end going over the same riff again and again that interesting.

If it sounds good - I play it - nuff said! lol

My dad played in a locale C&W band when he was young...and we always had guitar music on...so I sort of picked it up. There are some Country Music women who are pretty fair guitarists...it might surprise you to know Dolly Parton is one of them! She hardly ever plays in a performance though...she does most of her guitar work in the studio....and she had a guitar specially made for her (no comments please!

I can play a little...but unfortunately I was diagnosed with a condition that severely limits my playing... I would play for hours if I could.

it's true there are some good female guitarists, but no GREAT ones, no one on the level of Hendrix, Beck, Page, Clapton, Townsend, Vaughn, etc
