Somehow it always occurs to be that Western female guitarists always try to appear masculine in order to match up with their greasy hairy messy male peers.
Pardon the fashion too. Is it because I only come to know female guitarists in the late 80s and early 90s that all of them seem to love parading in flashy tight latex pants, big hair and bad makeup (excessive amount of mascara).
Yet, their skill is undeniably insane. My favourite would be Jeniver Battern. She totally wooed me with her LED wig(what ever that liminous thing is supposed to be) in her performance with Michael Jackson. Chek out Youtube for that !
I guess in the West, unless female guitarists can pull off thunder-speed shredding, crazy tapping, OMFG-fast sweep picking, their name will be unheared of.
However, Kim in Pixies is the exception. I find her somewhat like the old version of Akko.
That's also the reason why I like Asian female guitarists. They make the best use out of simplicity in their playing yet establisth an equally cool and unique style. (by "simplicity" I don't mean poor or of lower technical level. I just don't know the right word for that. In fact, Tokie's riff is very complex. But she manages to keep that complexity in control by agreesive repitition and does not let it run loose to become an long-winded one-man show). Asian guitarists appear more demure, mature and sophisticated. And they look normal XD.
Yet, I can't get used to watching some sweet-looking girls playing guitar. Last time I saw this Japanes band (Can't not remebber the name. Maria or something?) consisting of 6 girls with 2 glam-looking bassists. And that does not work for me. I think female guitarists should appear a little rough but not too much. Yuu's look is the best ! Cute and cool at the same time
Someone, please enlighten me with the new generation of female guitarists of this century please !
