lack of great female guitarists

do they exist?
ive never heard one female with talent on guitar,is this just me and my lack of musical knowledge?
does this link to crowleys view of females their supposed lack of will/determination/courage etc. there are so many men viewed as greats,do all the females take the mic or catwalk.
where are they?

Joni Mitchell is the ONLY woman on Guitar Magazine's list of 100 best guitarists of all time. She's #74 (The Edge is #48).

I didn't think so...

but give some of these others a listen

granted, there really isn't a female hendrix, but there are indeed some really good, creative female guitarists. my former guitar teacher (who teaches some pretty well-known session guitarists in nyc--i was his only beginner student) got really frustrated trying to teach me joni mitchell songs because he could never figure out what she was doing.

Bonnie Raitt came to mind straight away.....and then it was hmmmmmmmmm who is? So there is definitley an imbalance.
Rock music has very much been a traditionally male domain.

Just on a personal level and observation I made and wanted to talk about...this gives me the opportunity, thanks.
At the college the ratio would be 18 males, 2 females in the Contemporary Music Diploma class....and those guys can be so mean. They are recording their CD at the moment, each student has to write a song, record it and make a film clip. One of the girls burts into tears during the recording session and the guys just gloated on that bit of information. I was thinking at the time, I bet even Bono has shed a tear or two, because his idea just wouldn't come out right. So even in 2002 AD, sisters have to do it for themselves, there are those who enjoy their struggle and failures. RATBASTARDS!!!!

Wait till Son#2 wakes up.I think he knows every guitarist there ever was.

I know...I saw Joan Armatrading in 2000...she was ripping on a 12 string guitar. I'll think of others...I'll get back to you.
