Nita Strauss

Nita Strauss is a 21st-century guitar hero. She’s the current touring guitarist for Alice Cooper and actively plays with We Start Wars and the Guitar Collective. Strauss was the first female signature artist with Ibanez guitars and is regularly featured on the covers of worldwide print magazines including Guitar World and Guitar Player. She was ranked #1 on Guitar World’s list of “10 Female Guitar Players You Should Know.” She comes from a long line of classical musicians – one of her ancestors on her father’s side of the family is the Austrian composer Johann Strauss.

Nita engaged me to make updates to her Wikipedia article and remove formatting flags posted by editors. She wanted to add the facts that she’s worked with the WWE; that she conducts guitar clinics around the world; writes and records for industry magazines; is a counselor at Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp; was featured in the Netflix documentary Hired Guns; and was the guitarist for the Los Angeles Kiss arena football house band. Oh, and she also happens to be the first-ever female Ibanez signature artist, has a successful solo career, has been sober since 2015, and uses social media channels to be an advocate for sobriety and healthy living.

When we were finished, we had doubled the size of her article, adding 10 new sections — including a detailed discography. Citations for local and national news coverage were updated, correctly formatted, and referenced.
