I think it all depends on where you are, Xena...

I'm currently the worship leader for my church's youth group (I'm a girl ) and I took that responsibility when the former worship leader (a friend of mine, and also a female) left for college. The college group worship leader is female- she plays guitar and piano, and their occasional guitarist (she's learning) is a girl. Also, another friend of mine plays the guitar for her worship team at a different church in a different city.

So you see, I know a bunch of girls who are involved in worship leadership positions with their guitars.

Why dont you see this.
Chicks are usually backup singers holding tamborines. (I can say this Ive been a backup singer)
not lead gutarists.
Its just a fact.
I agree they don't write the same kinds of songs, but I don't think you understand that I am not talking about the lyrics at all, whatsoever!

My point is that between male and female guitarists,the differences in playing are not incredibly vast.

ok..

If your a SINGER SONG writer then you play music to the vocals.
Ok I sing high so I work better with a Capo on the 3rd fret.
Yes, I write lyrics around my voice and according to what matches my voice.
No way that a guy would play what I play they dont need too.
Ever sing Matt Redmans stuff he sings pretty high, well that is low for me so I must adjust my guitar playing.
Same chords: Plus my chest gets in the way so I have to play around that too.
I have to stand instead of sit.
There is a difference.
Playing styles are different according to your height and weight.
Thus these things change the music.


I am happy to hear there are girls that play in thier youth groups.
Especially girls that play electric thats awsome.
No chicks here play electric.
This does have a little to do with where I live.
But, girls still play different than guys especially if they write there own songs.
Lead vocals play different I dont know about lead guitarists.

YEah but that mite just have to do with the way you are, i have more of a naturally tenor voice, lots of guys can sing much higher than i can, even in my youth choir i sing tenor, i try to sing high but my voice just cracks and stuff, i prefer to sing lower.

I don't see how vocal range has anything to do with the way you play...

to go along with what Ashleigh said...I'm an alto and am more comfortable singing lower...I can go high, but I prefer not to if I don't have to...but still, that doesn't affect the way I play. I'm sure if I posted a clip of me playing something and then posted a clip of my brother playing the same thing without telling you who was who, you wouldn't be able to tell which was me and which was him.

re:

She said she sang low right, nothing wrong with that tenors are great.
But if she plays bass, its suiting. Bass is a very low instrument.
Beanbag.. what instument do you play?
How long have you been playing? I dont play in youth groups anymore.
I certianly incourage to play and sing your hearts out.
I am glad to see you have an oppinion even though we dont agree.
Stay Strong.
Play music and its good you dont compare yourself to the boys.
Though unfortunatly for me there arent very many girls here that play guitar.
There very few female musicians where I live so I find that most the guys in my area arent use to playing w/females.
They are not use to females writting or playing music.
Unless its the flute.
Its not good to get into a habbit of compairing myself to the male musicians.
However, theres not anyone else to teach me.
I find a lot of good musicians to be arrogant.
And difficult to work with. Thats just me.
Hope you have better luck playing music where you are at.

I agree. Just say that you were in an instrumental band. I myself played in an insttrumental rock band a few moths back. Boy or girl, it really doesn't matter.

I love working on my dirtbike, but my brother would never get down there and change his sparkplug, or ne thing of that sort. so, i dunno if guys are always better at mechanics, but you do have a point there

I'm a female guitar player and I beleive that as far as pure playing ability goes, gender doesn't matter - regardless of the genre of music.

I am in my church's worship band and I play all types of music from hard rock to blues. I even study classical guitar at a conservatory and it's interesting to note that I'm the only female in the class.

As far as the argument that "women express themselves differently through guitar" is concerned, that's just ridiculous. I think if it were true, the differences would not be limited to guitar. Women would be wildly different piano, bass, or vibe players and that's just not the case.

P.S. I like to rock HARD and I'll put my playing up again a guy's anytime. Bring it on!

I forgot to add one thing.... Check out Viva Voce's "Hooray for Now". It's a christian rock band (actually husband and wife team) and they rock! Anita Robinson does much of the guitar work. I admit the vocals are less than perfect and I do have some other criticisms about the CD, but Anita is an AMAZING guitar player and can rock as hard as any guy.
