nickyates2010

Ok just curious, why did Courtney Love make the list but not Orianthi? She should be number 1!!!!! She's the hottest female guitarist on this planet!!

I like Dolly Parton but she should take more attention to her nutrition.

afdw76

how about emily haines from metric.

zomb

Okay she may not be a rock guitarist or anything like that, but Ana Vidovic is an insane female guitarist and she is smoking hot..... a deadly combination. You guys should check her out.

Although you have done a great job with your list, I was disapointed you couldn't find room for Nori Bucci. She has 2 quality CD's out and completing her 3rd. Check her out on Youtube. You may then want to extend your list to 21.

Katie Perry and Madonna....are not guitarists! Are you for real. If they jump behind a drum kit once are the drummers???

WHERE IS ORIANTHI!!! She can shred better than any of these guitarists on either list and is certainly one of the hottest in history!

This has to be a joke list?

bloodyshanks

Katie Perry!?!?! You're scraping the bottom of the fucking barrel there! Christ!

mastashaka

Cause at least she is musically talented and can shred

What about annie clark from st. vincent

Surprised not to see Ana Popovic in listing 1 or 2. She can Rock and 'ROLL' up these ladies and "Smoke" them!

morgan999

Anna Popovic, Carolyn Wonderland, Chelsea Constable, Courtney Cox (No, NOT the actor!), Joni Mitchell, Emily Remler (R.I.P.), Lita Ford, Rory Block, Nina Gerber and so many more...

I love Guitar World, but someone should put a bit of time into making this page reflect reality.

Glad to see Poison Ivy got some notice. Have to agree that the Deal Sister should have been on here.

amar4nth

what about orianthi?? she is far more better than all of them

nursetom61

Go back and look at every list pertaining to female guitarists. GW has left out Orianthi from every list they have compiled. I wonder if the folks over at Guitar World feel threatened by a FEMALE guitarist the caliber of Orianthi. Gives a whole new meaning to "you play like a girl" I only wish I could play as well as this "Girl"

I just saw that Alison Robertson's in Part 1.In fact she's the first one.Sorry.But still-Madonna and Dolly Parton?!

avatar

demonsweat

Give me a fucking break.What about Alison Robertson from The Donnas?Now she's hot!More so than Madonna (old and lame) and Dolly Parton (old and...Old).Come on !!

avatar

icenerveshatter

You guys don't listen to enough stoner rock. Get with it. Not only are Lori S. (Acid King), Sina (Bottom), & Emily Burton (Fireball Ministry) hot female guitarists, they also make some of the best rock music around. That said, Liz Buckingham of Electric Wizard is the hottest female guitarist.

If you include Madonna, you have to include Shakira.

Somethings wrong if you've listed forty and still haven't got to The Great Kat. I have a feeling she's creeping through the vents in your office with a knife.

Girlschool, ...Girlschool

Good job overall though. Props on including Gabriela, (and Juliana Hatfield on part one)

avatar

roxyosox

taylor swift is definetely the hottest out of these guitar players

avatar

jerkychid

Hottest?
1: most of those women aren't all that hot
2: WHO CARES? How about the best female guitarists?

avatar

stratkiller

masterbassist69

kt64

WHERE IS SUZI QUATRO ???????????

avatar

badfish5

Wow, Madonna?!!!! you actually gave this serious though? Man, you guys have some serious explaining or at the very least, apologizing to do!!! (Blame it on the weed, say it was a joke or something!!) Madonna is, at best, great at marketing herself!!
That's it!!

rockinflower86

Gore Gore Girls? Hello? Charo and Madonna,stupid

irishpride1977

What about Lzzy Hale???

mjw6555

OK...let's get real.
Like has already been said, many of these girls are here simply because once-upon-a-time...someone flashed 'em holding an Ax!
Not fair.
I give you the Late, Fantastic April Lawton! As Lead Guitarist for Ramatam, Mitch Mitchell's 1st Post-Experience band, April absolutely tore it up on the band's 1st release..."Ramatam"...1972. From the opening cut, Whiskey Woman, to the last, Can't Sit Still...April actually gave us a look into the future of guitar playing with her high-octave, screaming, vibrato pyrotechnics, and two-handed tapping technique, almost completely unheard of until Van Halen & Vai arrived!
Their 2nd, and last release, "In April Came, the Dawning of the Red Suns"...1973 was alot less exciting than their debut, sadly, and Ramatam disbanded shortly after the tour following its release.
There's a handful of misc. tracks by April, circa 1990s, available out there on the net, like at AprilLawton.com, and elsewhere! Also available is a lot of her original artwork...paintings, etc. Sadly, beautiful April died due to heart failure at her home in November 23, 2006. She was 58 years old, and due to her exceptional, flamboyant style, appears to have passed the baton on to the gorgeous, Flaming Hot Guitarist Extraordinaire...Jennifer Batten!
In addition to being a huge part of Michael Jackson's touring band for quite awhile, and for being his studio guitarist as well, Jennifer received accolades among musicians for her perfomances on hew own CD releases..."Above, Below and Beyond"...1992, and the high-flying "Momentum" by Jennifer Batten's Tribal Rage...1997.
She finally began to receive serious notice while filling in for the incredible Tony Hymas on a few Jeff Beck tours, as well as showing her stuff as Jeff Beck's left hand girl on the CD releases "Who Else?"...1999, and "You Had it Coming"...2001.
April Lawton and Jennifer Batten, should...Hands Down...be at the very TOP of this particular list!!

Awesome guitarist.

How the hell does Louise Post (Veruca Salt) not make this list?! She has the looks, attitude, and most importantly, the chops to be way ahead of a lot of others on this list! And if we're including bass players, you gotta have Nicole Fiorentino (also from VS and Spinnerette).

avatar

dolson80301

She can also kick out some nice licks.

avatar

79silverburst

I'm not sure if you mean hot with just looking hot or 4 just playing or both but Madonna?!!!! Geez what a joke! Can she play anything besides the barre chords she learnt last year?!! I don't know The Great Cat's name but she'd rip most every girl up there a new one when it comes to playing! The female Yngwie 2B 4 sure! Maybe she's up there & I missed her Ca,Mon!! Not to mention the girl in Vixen & the 2 Girls in Girls School are better than a lot of those flunkies unless I missed them also from being blinded by the list that's being shown!

avatar

dolson80301

We also have:
The Great Kat the fastest woman guitarist alive
Bonnie Raitt (The ultimate slide player)
Susan Tedeschi
Suzi Quatro
Tal Wilkenfeld

drugfreeboy

wow madonna and katie perry???? really GW? really? any broad from L7 or the Donnas would have done? at least they're guitarist/bassist that have been playing for a while and not just picking it up cause its "cool". i'm ashamed.

avatar

zevon74

Are you kidding me ?

Judging by this list the word "hot" is open to a HUGE interpretation. It seems this list consists of just any chick who has ever picked up the guitar. Madonna? Really? When was the last time she was hot? Joan Baez? Hot? I agree with some of the choices in here, but like I said it seems the chicks were picked simply because there was one shot of them holding a guitar.

avatar

eurometalrules

She's freakin' hot! Unlike a lot of other female pop acts, she can actually sing and write her own material.

avatar

ronnieguitar

Oh yeah, I forgot the late great Flash Bathory

avatar

ronnieguitar

OK I didn't see part one but I hope Ana Popovic is in it. She's can play circles around any of the girls (and old women) on this list. And hot? Long legs leading up to a perfect little butt. Oh yeahhhhhhhh!
And how about Sue Foley, another great blues player.

avatar

palavdin

What about Kelly Johnson?

guitarnoize

Madonna?! jesus. What about Orianthi? at least she can actually play! http://www.myspace.com/orianthi

smitebloodstone

Kim Deal from the Pixes (& the Breeders)
D'Arcy from the original Smashing Pumpkins lineup
Sean Yseult from White Zombie

yeah, all bass players, but if you are going to include Tina Weymouth...

ReddHouse470
