We scrolled through all 100 names from their "Top 100 Guitarists List" and even through the list of "All Time Best Guitarists"
but we found no women in any of them
No women found even when we searched 'Top Guitarists' on Youtube. But if you skip a few hundred pages, you'll see some girls who spent more time on makeup than practice.
Google wasn't that bad, actually. After you scroll through the first 36 guitarists, you'll find "Taylor Swift"! No offense to Taylor Swift but ever heard of Jennifer Batten?
Even if there are a few rare places where they mention women somewhere in the corner, those women are nowhere near the most talented ones.
We're bringing together a community and mentorship of high quality female guitarists, we aspire to inspire more and more women to pick up guitars and not feel alone in this industry.
We encourage existing female guitarists to start composing original music instead of
covering songs, as well as, guide original musicians to push their creative boundaries.
We uplift the unrecognised female guitarists by creating local gig opportunities and help hardworking and creative musiSHEans to succesfully launch their own music.
"Guitar became a man's world long ago. But we need to consciously make room for women in this world because without them, it becomes a parody. We can start by recognising the huge contribution made by guitarists up until now, and by giving every possible opportunity to new guitarists."
"I am not inclined to give female musicians special points for being women. A great female musician is a great musician. Period. I think men are too often fooled by their eyes, and YouTube feeds that deception. I am always relieved when really great musicianship is displayed by a guitarist, male or female. I appreciate great music whether it is played by a woman or a man. I just want musicianship and I'm happy that musiSHEan.com is bringing that balance."
"When it comes to melody, flow, feel and good taste many of my favorite musicians are women without a doubt. I would encourage and support them until the end, with zero hidden agenda. All races, religions, and especially genders are what makes life colorful - and everyone has the right and should have the ability to make music. I love how musiSHEan.com is encouragig and supporting so many female musicians,"
"The world is full of undescovered female musicians. Often I listen to the question 'Why are there few female guitarists in the world? And my answer is because global media doesn't give them the same attention as it gives the male ones. Let's change it. Now is the time because we all know how much feminine energy the world is lacking. Let's go for the balance!"
When you support the musiSHEans community just once, you will receive returns for a lifetime.
We strongly believe that anyone who helps in sowing a seed, must share the fruits of success.
musiSHEan is a big dream but one that's totally necessary to realise at this time. We have dedicated our lives towards making this dream a reality by creating a sustainable community of strong musical women and men who inspire one another. But we have our bills to pay as well :) And we totally appreciate any monetary support because that's an important anchor for setting a solid foundation. With your support we will create a forever growing community of great guitarists.
