short girls who play bass arent taken seriosly because the instrument is bigger than them, and they look really cute

lol, women shredding is pretty weird, and i dont have an opinion on it, theres this jazz group with a woman who is absolutely astonishing on the keyboard, its just her, a bassist and a drummer, she's rated up with jordan rudess from the old theater

Yeah....but the perfect woman would be cooking your dinner, ironing your clothes and tearing off an awesome solo all at the same time

Not really impressed with speed and technique but I LOVE a woman who can wail.

I much rather listen to Joanna Shaw Taylor

than Lori Linstruth who clearly has much better technique and is better looking but it's just meeehhh

I guess it comes to music taste, I rather listen to solid blues groove than neo-classical prog.

Hey, don't put me in that corner. How sad for a woman to lower herself to a subservient life. A woman like that is neither interesting or desirable. Woman should aspire, be smart and interesting, educated, traveled there and back and have the stories to tell about it. A good woman doesn't need a man.....just a great guitar.

I was accused of being sexist because I posted vids of chicks playing better than most the guys around here, and somehow I'm accused of being sexist for pointing that they were girls. I guess I should have just said, "Persons of non specific gender changing the appearance of your time keeping device"

People now days are so politically correct, it makes me sick. if your offended by this thread, why not ignor it.... You'd have to be daft if you truely believe that guitar was for men only.... simple as that...
