SO many great woman guitarists in all the genres. Molly Tuttle, Orianthi, Muriel Anderson, Nancy Wilson, Rory Block, etc.

It's a great time to be a music fan.

They should do an article on Emily Remler

I like She Shreds a lot because as much as I enjoy nerding out about guitars, I don't know a ton and I don't play very well. I'm happy to learn more and get better. But so many guitar spaces online are so ... dude-y. Even if they're not out-right misogynist, they're not really welcoming to women (to be fair, some places don't really seem welcoming, period). She Shreds is such a comfortable space for all levels of knowledge and skill and really gets to what playing should be about -- having fun and enjoying it.

This is wonderful. We need many more magazines like this, and more coverage of women musicians.

Shannon Wright is so awesome.

I've loved She Shreds since they did an article on local heroes Tacocat.

Ace! I found She Shreds when I was looking for info about a new NADJA release (doomy sludgy drone), and discovered this awesome interview with Leah Buckareff
"Between Genres and Music Communities"
where I learned that the bassist/vocalist (and one half of Nadja) is a professional paper restorer and book binder.

It was such a good site that I assumed it had been around for aaaaaaagges doing such good work, didn't realise it was so (relatively) new. Ace.

This is great. Is this where I can plug my friend Sarah Longfield?

Also check out Tom Tom Magazine for women drummers.

I've been annoyed for a while now about having lost my She Shreds t-shirt.

I discovered Wye Oak/Flock of Dimes via the She Shreds Facebook page. They are the best songwriters I've heard in years.
