A slight turn, not a giant leap. That’s how Sheryl Crow assesses the move she made into mainstream country music with her most recent album, Feels Like Home.

It just happens that now I’m in a different category.”

While the world of guitar rock, admittedly, is male-heavy, a number of female players have risen to the top over the years, proving women have just as much aptitude for the 6-string as their male colleagues.

Last week I picked up a 2014 Gibson SG Special on loan for a few days, and after playing with it for a little while it struck me: “Whoa, this SG has 24 frets.” I have some 24-fret fluorescent-colored shred axes for my more noodly moments, but when I started messing around with the higher notes of the Special I realized that I was approaching those extra frets in a different way on this guitar.
