Top Ten Best Female Guitarists
The Top Ten
The rowdiest, raunchiest (in a good way) rawest rock guitar player in the studio and on stage. Her chops and chord approach were probably what helped the big boys in thrash metal gain some confidence in their early playing. All attitude and loud guitar - that's Joan Jett!
Its Joan Jett people what doesn't scream BAD REPUTATION down the road
Two words... Pure EPICNESS
Joan jett is a major influence on young woman in the music business
She's also one of the top punk guitarists.
Only 4% votes? She's literally the only singer on this list that plays her guitar in every one of her songs and videos. Plus, she was actually going to be Michael Jackson's guitarist for his This Is It tour and she's currently Alice Cooper's guitarist!
She is my most favourite Queen of Guitarist. Hope I can bring her to KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia... For a concert... To honour her amazing skills... She is awesome with lots of experience and confidence when on stage. She really rocks...
If you listen just once you have to put up at the top or close to it! I don't know how she is left off any top 10 list?
Orianthi has a wonderful voice. I saw her on the Alice Cooper concert at Dortmund Westfalenhalle in June of 2014
When Nancy Wilson picks up her guitar... You know you're going to be blown away by her dynamic aggressive acoustic playing or her raunchy rock rhythms on the electric or her amazing picking styles. She's a dynamic persona on stage the ultimate guitar queen. Her song writing and magical voice make her a complete artist. She's been rocking and creating music for a good 40 years. If Nancy Wilson had been male she would have made "God" status by now. Respect to guitar goddess Nancy Wilson
The String Queen leading the axe slingers far and wide. Her amazing skills, riffs, clean picking, fast agressive attacks and progressions lock her in@ #1. She is a multi talented musician on many instruments some include mandolin, autoharp, blues harp, 12 string, blazing electric and acoustic guitar. She's a wild high kickin axe slinger on stage and sings beautifully. Maintaining top slot - Ms. Nancy Wislon - Heart
Nancy wilson should have been 1 avril lavigne should not be on here
Nancy should be number one (tied with Bonnie Raitt. )
The angel and the legend of all time on earth she should b number one she is the creator of bumble bee... Godess of rock of all time queen of rock vote for Jennifer...
Astonishing technique! See "Flight of the bumble bee".
Flight of the bumblebee is impossibly hard
Listen to "Close My Eyes Forever" and get back to me. P.S. I don't think Swift qualifies.
OHMYGOD She's the queen of everything
Something is really wrong with y'all if you let Joni Mitchell lose against Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift.
Joni's tuning and technique of playing was ground breaking.
Should be Top 5
She really rocks. Control chaos look forward to new stuff. Hope to see her again soon solo uk tour or with Alice Cooper
This girl can really shred! Should be in the top ten.
Hey, dumb ass, Nina is #2
WHAT? BEST FEMALE GUITARIST
The one and only woman on slide blues guitar is Bonnie Raitt. She's got the sound that many women try to capture and emulate. Many of blues men have hailed her as one of the finest voices and guitar players out there. She always gives us something to talk about.
One of the best guitarists, period.
Probably one of the biggest influences for any female guitarist starting out in the 80's- 90's. She is raw, real and what you see is what you get. On stage her guitar is as much a part of her as is the lyrics she sings. The Pretenders paved a wider freeway for women to travel.
And an excellent, engaging vocalist and performer.
