Girls Can Play

As it’s International Women’s Day today, I thought I’d share my recent discovery of a great female jazz guitarist :

Mary Osborne.

This version of “I Surrender Dear” recording in 1958 is outstanding. Note that Billie Holiday is sitting next to Mary Osborne. They play together during the same show…

Here’s a great article from Vintage Guitar

And a quick transcription of the stop-chorus on “No Moon At All”
