Agreed with Gshred-though something else about it irks me.
If there were more female guitar players(doing more shred oriented work) we wouldn't have cute girls that are only moderately talented hogging all the attention(okay I'm guilty of watching Jacquline92-I just don't think she's as great as people say). I feel that there is an unfair bias as to what is acceptable from a female guitarist and a male guitarist. It's not exactly fair nor should it be this way, but I think that if a girl plays guitar, regardless of how talented the individual might be, they will usually get props because they play, whereas from my shoes, I have to really make an impression otherwise I get the inevitable "I could do it better".
Women! Play more guitar! Or drums... I need a drummer.

It may not be up your alley, this style of music (Pop...) but here ya go. I've checked who wrote these songs as well, since most pop music can be written by someone else and sung by a performing artist. All of these songs have been written/produced by a female body.
Lisa Loeb - Stay
Alanis Morissette - Ironic
Tracy Chapman - Fast Car
Shania Twain - You're Still The One
The Cranberries - Zombie (Was written by the female lead)
Sarah McLachlan - Angel
I'm sure some, if not all of these songs you know. Although, I do agree that I had to hit the 90's to find guitarists, since most music nowadays is electronic...

Yeah Jeff, you hit some good ones. This may not be an amazing guitar piece, but the musicianship is amazing and beyond whatI could ever hope to write. Another Sarah McLachlin tune. I wish more people wrote quality music like this. I don't care if this makes me lose credibility with the metalheads. :D
I just found out about a female guitarist called Deseerie Basset (Not sure if I spelt that right), She's pretty good and always loooks happy, i don't know how to get videos off youtube but check her out.
I know one Female guitarist.
We're like twins. We both play lefty, we've both played for the same amount of time, we play the same style, we are the same age, and when I first met her, we literally had the exact same guitar (same Epi LP, same color, even had dark spots in about the same places)
I say she plays better than me, she says the other way around, and other people say we play about the same, but she has to be the best Guitarist in the area we live in, but she only plays for fun, and to pass time, so I'm one of three (or somewhere around there) people that have heard her play.
