Thread Name: Best female folk guitar players?
Subject: RE: Best female folk guitar players?
When I was younger, I learned a lot from Joan Baez's guitar playing. Folk guitar is funny - its not really about being superfast - or anything. Its about, getting it right.
I saw Julie Felix a few years ago, and she joined the session after the gig. I just had to ask her how she did this pretty little thing in her accompaniment to the The Plane Crash at Los Gatos. Just a flick of the fingers across the top of the guitar, but it was so artful, and so right. So Spanish.
