Prior to I start, I wish to thank everybody who has been suggesting other acoustic blues musicians, specifically those that requested for more female blues guitar players!
The first female blues guitar player you require to take a look at is Elizabeth Cotton. Understood for playing the guitar upside-down, Elizabeth Cotton is an INSPIRATION to all guitarists– make certain to examine out her full discovery.
The 2nd female blues guitarist you require to know on my list is Etta Baker. Born in North Carolina, Etta Baker is an extraordinary acoustic blues guitarist. Her fingerpicking and tone is a delight to see and listen to.
The 3rd female blues guitar player you REQUIRED to listen to is Memphis Minnie. Born in 1897, Memphis Minnie didn’t always play guitar on her records, however she has a FAMOUS discography filled with fun, x-rated songs (especially for the time!).
The 4th female blues guitarist on my list is Algia Mae Hinton. Whether you see her fingerpicking or listen to the phrasing in her singing, Algia Mae Hinton is absolutely a female blues guitarist that you can’t skip.
Finally, my primary pick for female blues guitarists you need to know is Jessie Mae Hemphill. For someone that oozes the blues and has that tone that nobody else has, Jessie Mae Hemphill is for you. Her category of acoustic blues is called North Mississippi Hill Nation Blues!
Up next, I’ll reveal you a preview at the 5-day blues challenge that’s beginning on January 27th! In just 2 weeks, you’ll be able to find out some brand-new blues techniques and expand your vision of your blues guitar playing.
After that, I’ll be revealing you the Mule “Mavis” which is a semi-hollow guitar made with all-roasted Michigan maple. For a guitar that’s a cross in between a resonator and an archtop, look no further than Mule’s “Mavis.”.
And … speaking of Mule Guitars, I have some footage of Matt from@Mule Resonator Guitars providing a custom guitar to Jason Mamoa. Make certain to view the full episode to see more.
