Guitar Girl'd: Guitar Center Respects the Ladies

I went to Guitar Center to buy some audio cables the other day. They were special ones with banana plug ends. I had the spec written down on a piece of paper, and I was a little nervous going into the GC audio department never having purchased this type of cable before.

Guitar Girl'd: Interview with Blues Guitarist Ana Popovic on Her New Album, 'Unconditional'

Ana Popovic can play the shit out of the blues. And she belts it out like a mother in pain, too. But what really captivated me was the sight of her wielding her Strat and tossing off a bevy of tasty Stevie Ray Vaughan-esque licks while wearing a super-sleek, silver mini-dress. Yep. The totally package. Hot. Cool. Killer chops. But don’t think that Popovic hasn’t paid her dues when it comes to the blues.

Guitar Girl'd: Interview with Mimi Fox, Queen of Jazz Guitar

When Mimi Fox was eleven, she started teaching guitar lessons out of her house. That’s right – eleven years old. The fact that she could make more money teaching guitar than babysitting opened her eyes to what would become her future. (Hmm, changing poopy diapers or sharing some six string savvy. Which would you choose?)

Guitar Girl’d: Girls Rock Camp. All Play, No Hassle

Face it, guys; we gals want to rock just as much as you do, and we don’t want any negative, "you can’t do this" energy standing in our way. Enter Girls Rock Camp, a place for females of all ages to grab a guitar, a keyboard, a microphone or whatever else they desire and immerse themselves in all that is fine and soul-fulfilling about making music. With no distracting testosterone floating about in the air.

Guitar Girl'd: Nili Brosh, Tony MacAlpine’s Latest Weapon

Justin Bieber isn’t the only musician who knows how to harness the power of YouTube. When she was 18, Nili Brosh posted a video called “Guthrie Govan solo played by 18 year old girl.” Her dexterity and ability stunned viewers, and her video went viral, landing her an endorsement with Inspire Guitars.

Amy Winehouse: Singer, Guitarist and Lost Soul

With the death of Amy Winehouse on July 23, 2011, we lose not only a talented singer and songwriter, but an accomplished guitarist as well. While she is best known for her standout vocal performance, Winehouse could hold her own on guitar, preferring a Fender Strat.

Exposed: 10 Female Guitarists You Should Know

Many of you may be under the impression that there aren’t a lot of female guitarists worthy of a mention on GuitarWorld.com. That is where you are DEAD WRONG! In fact, we have come across so many kickass players, across every genre and era, that we thought we’d give you a tasty tidbit of a few that stand out from the pack.

Interview: Bridgid Bibbens Rocks Dimebag Solos on Electric Violin

A trained classical violinist, Bridgid Bibbens says she’s “crossed over to the dark side.” But with gigs under her belt with host of heavies like Christina Aguilera, Trans Siberian Orchestra, Tommy Lee, Jay-Z, John Mayer, Alicia Keys and a boatload more, I’d say the dark side is treating her pretty darn good.

Interview with Guitarist Kristen Capolino: Looks Like Your Sister, Plays Like a Powerhouse

Smiley, cute, petite. Kristen Capolino looks like she could be a high school cheerleader. But put a guitar in her hand and she will kick your ass! Sort of like the Buffy the Vampire Slayer of power rock.

Interview: Anita Robinson of Viva Voce

If you Google “quirky kick-ass two-piece modern rock band,” you won’t see Viva Voce on the list (Pronounce it VEEvah VOchay). But you should! In fact, that search comes up empty. But that’s only because Viva Voce’s unique blend of singable, irreverent indie retro folk rock just can’t be categorized.
