The reason why?

women are lovers not wankers. They listen to music differently. They're more texturizers than soloists. In America, it's all about hype and flash. It's macho to solo -- be loud and really fast. In a male-dominated world, that kind of play gets the kudos because it adheres to a male standard. Ever notice how men tend to quantify music as if it's possible. That's so left brain. Women are more intuitive and right brained. Eventually as more women kick ass in this world, society will be reassessing the above standard. Being a virtuoso doesn't mean being visionary and unique.

Re: The reason why?

I absolutely agree, and this exact thought underlies a lot of my feelings about bluegrass vs. old-time music.
