Don't know if any of you have heard of Kaki King (I wasn't familiar until last night), but she is probably the MOST AMAZING female guitarist I have EVER had the pleasure of watching perform! If you get the chance to listen to her stuff, PLEASE do, and, more importantly, IMHO, if you ever get the opportunity to actually WATCH her play, be prepared to have your jaw hit the floor! She totally blew me away! Here's a few links in case you're interested!

If you have a fast connection, you can watch a video of her on the archives of Woodsongs. Here is the link:

http://www.woodsongs.com/showlist.asp It's show #328.

There are lots of other good shows there too. You need to check out Muriel Anderson also. Heck, watch them all. The site is addicting. :D

Thanks! I'll be sure to check it out! Just went out and bought her 'Legs To Make Us Longer' -- found it in the $1 bin and they were having a 20% off sale so I got it for .80!!!! Best 80 cents I ever spent in my life!!!!!!

FYI, I went to the site and downloaded and watched a couple of the video's listed at the bottom of her page. My virus scan this morning flagged the "OhNo' video as having a virus... Bummer. That aside, she really rocks though. 8)

Its been awhile since I've been here to guitarnoise. And to think I've been missing hearing music like that! What talent! It gives me goosebumps. I hope all is well with you Electra. I'll be back

Boy! No kidding!

I know I'll never reach anywhere near their talent (I'll be ecstatically happy to simply be proficient), but just knowing that they're out there is SO encouraging! And, seeing them finally getting their well deserved recognition is a wonderful thing!

To paraphrase: Y'ALL GO GIRLS!!!!! :lol:

Her new CD is fantastic! It's been on constant play since it arrived. If you ever have the chance to see her play live, I highly recommend it. So much energy from such a tiny person!

I occasionally go to Austin (the live music capital of the WORLD!!), and I caught this TINY, little woman playing a white strat that was nearly as big as she was. Seeing someone of her size you sort of automatically think she must have a tiny, little voice. I posted some of her stuff on my website because Scratchmonkey wanted to hear some........here's the URL..... http://www.elecktrablue.com/catherine_denise.html Bear in mind when you listen to her that SHE is the only guitar player (she's got a bass player and a keyboard player, so all of the guitar is her), as well as the vocalist. She blew me away! That tiny, little white girl can play and sing the blues like she was born to it! Give her a listen! Oh, btw.... her name is Catherine Denise.

Thanks for the clips. They sounded fantastic. One of my favorite female guitarists is Kelly Richey--I'd put her in the blues, rock, jam catagory. This girl can play a guitar! Unfortunately, there is only one mp3 on her website.

Give it a listen. I think you'll like it.

Laura Lasley interviewed Kelly for an Other Side article, which is how I discovered her in the first place.

Part 2
