Justin Bieber isn’t the only musician who knows how to harness the power of YouTube.

Guitar Girl'd: Top 10 Hot Male Guitar Players

After repeatedly coming across Top 10 lists of "Hot Female Guitar Players,” I thought it only fitting that I turn the tables. So the following has nothing to do with chops, style, technique or anything guitar-related.
