Why has nobody informed me about Barbara Lynn?


Looks like I got some catching up to do.

I would have embedded the video but somethings wonky.

For some reason I thought she was also Lady Bo. I was wrong. Good to know there were, and are, more women out there playing guitar. Thanks!

I assumed the same thing. She's not Bo Diddley's guitar player?

I am confused as to the title: "She Played it Left Hand", but in that picture she's playing it right-handed. And not singing either. Why do those titles insist on being liars?

I'm gonna embed that video because it's badass (and because she does indeed play it left-hand).

Thanx Jake - why I couldn't get it to work I have no idea. And it is indeed badass.

Despite what the caption says, the picture in Mixmaster Shecky's post is not of Barbara Lynn. It is of Duchess, who played guitar in Bo Diddley's bands in the early to mid-1960s.

Lady Bo, who also gets a mention in this thread, is another female guitarist who played on and off with various Bo Diddley's bands from the late 1950s until the mid-1990s.

Barbara Lynn is an artist in her own right and she has never played in any of Bo Diddley's bands.

Ah, so I'm not totally losing my mind.

Ha ha. A similar thing happened in a mix up between my old town and an older one.

Any one else think she could almost be Jimi's sister? Not really in terms of guitar, but voice, face and mannerisms.
