Not really classical, but if you know any feel free to post.

I've been trying real hard to find some female fingerstyle players (steel string) on youtube, do they exist? I know of Kaki King, but that's it. There's something about a woman playing a guitar in a world full of famous male performers that inspire me.

Can you guys, if you know any, care to share and point the way?

really thanks a bunch

+1 on ani difranco. amazing musician.

I'm trying to remember if Anais Mitchell is a fingerstylist or not, but regardless she's a fantastic player and songwriter too.

especially finding females who arent singing while playing. I just prefer melodies...

There are some fantastic classical players as well. Ana Vidovic, Sharon Isbin, Li Jie, Xuefei Yang and believe it or not Charo is a pretty good player.

Surprised no one's mentioned Janis Ian. She doesn't play the piano any longer but has arranged incredible guitar versions of her old material. More than worth a listen.

Peace
