Guitar Player - May 2017 – 50 Sensational Female Guitarists
The May issue of Guitar Player features 50 Sensational Female Guitarists
Part of celebrating GP's 50th anniversary this year involves paying tribute to all of the talented artists who have expanded guitar culture with their gifts - guitarists who have educated, inspired, and challenged a vast community of players. In this issue, we honor 50 women who have made a huge imprint on the history of guitar (Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Maybelle Carter, Elizabeth Cotten, June Millington, Bonnie Raitt), or who have wowed audiences for years (Susan Tedeschi, Ani DiFranco, Sharon Isbin, Leni Stern, Nancy Wilson), or who are helping forge the instrument's future (St. Vincent, Noveller, Gabriela Quintero, Bibi McGill, and Gretchen Menn).
