Subject: RE: Best female folk guitar players?
As the OP included blues, could I mention Memphis Minnie? You won't find any videos of her, but if you google you will find videos of female player Del Rey teaching her style, which involved open tunings. You need long fingers to reach some of the notes.
Not finger picking or country blues but Rosetta Tharpe (This Train).
