Newbie Blueswoman

Postby trystan82 » Sun Jun 05, 2005 9:03 pm

Hi everybody!

Great to meet you all!
I'm 23 and I've been playing blues guitar since I was 14.
I love all of them styles, and can play the electric, acoustic and slide guitar. And I also love singing! I thought I'd join this site cos there's plenty of info here.
I'm Italian and I'd love to start my own blues band to play gigs around. I played live for 4 years as I was in high school but did get tired of my fellow musician. So now I'm going to be the first blueswoman in Italy to sing and play guitar and, who knows, perhaps to finally erase the prejudice we have here according to which women must only sing and men can play the guitar!
Wish me some luck, folks!
All the best,
Sara

Welcome. Bonnie Raitt showed a woman can sing and play the Blues with the best of them - you show them in Italy. Good luck girl!

Don't forget Rory Block. That woman has some serious blues guitar and singing going on.

Post often, and let us know how your efforts are going.

AHHHH YES !! The Michigan Connection !!!!
Welcome the "Road" Sara AND I hope your time in the Great Lake state will be enjoyable and profitable to your education.
Depending on which part of Italy you are from and which part of Michigan you will be going to school (Upper or Lower peninsula) you will see a wonderful state. (Except maybe in the winter, at which time it is known as "The Great White North", brrrrrrrrr !!)
Enjoy your stay, Luck in your education and fun on "The Big Road"

welcome young lady. best of luck in your endeaver. my 23 yr old daughter is a hell a blues singer. and i've seen first hand at blues jams here the prejudice . she don't look like a blues singer and you'd probably not figure she could carry a tune in a bucket to look at her. and they always question her. "you sure you can sing the blues". it's fun to watch their faces when she belts out most anything the band can play.

regards

I know that very well...
Good luck to your daughter!
I'll be trying to get into a public jam session at a bar on the beach in about ten days... A very good local blues band will be playing there and they're all like 50 or so, they're all musicians who've been playing for decades. It's going to be quite tough but I'll try my best to get into it and play as well as I can.
There're very few bars here in Italy where you can play the blues.
So you have to make the best of each and every opportunity.
Thanks so much to everyone!

Don't let us geezers scare you, my dear. The good thing about the Blues is there's only one "right" way to play it - with feeling!
