She really has a fantastically beautiful ... Guitar,
but the shape of her nose is too!

For a worldwide competition for the best to find guitarists, we would recommend Anabel Montesinos and Margarita Escarpa into the race.
So much for the fact that Spanish women can't do classical music.

Can someone explain to us why pretty female musicians both on the piano, like Yuja Wang, and Alexandra Whittignhamm on guitar, like many others appear in dresses as if they were in an - albeit - albeit upscale but still - semi-seedy nightclub?
That's about like Lang Lang performing in String Tangier.
We expressly apologize to Mr. Lang for the comparison, which was not seriously meant.


Small selection

Brandon Acker...........Capricho Àrabe
Tommy Emmanuel..........Guitar Boogie
Amir John Haddad........Bulerias
Joscho Stephan..........Hey Joe
Andrew York.............Home
Marc Teichholz..........Llobet and Tarrega

To name just the ones that stand out in our opinion.

Muriel Anderson.........Bluegrass Medley
Margarita Escarpa.......Konzert FIGG 2021
Paola Hermosin..........Recuerdos de la Alhambra
Sharon Isbin............Asturias
Stephanie Johnes........Corona House Concert
Julia Lange.............La Catedral
Karlijn Langendijk......Atlas (her new Album)
Yenne Lee...............Autumn Leaves
Anabel Montesinos.......Sor Festival 2021
Tatyana Ryzhkova........Giuliani Sonate Op.15
Alexandra Whittingham...Recuerdos de la Alhambra
Elena Zucchini..........Fuoco

The list of first-class female concert guitarists could be extended significantly longer. Women seem to like it when it gets really complex and multi-layered!
