As most GuitarWorld.com fans know by now, this site often shares guitar-centric lists that were produced and posted by other news sources, including Guitar Nerds, GuitarPlayer.com and GuitarAficionado.com.

Lately, we've been sharing lists created by WatchMojo.com, a group that posts top-10 lists—in video form—about pretty much everything, including space ships, theme parks, junk food, alien robots, non-alien robots, zombies, fast cars, fruit, comic-book characters, explosions and, well, you get the idea!

You might even remember two recent ones, Are These the Top 10 Guitar Models of All Time? and Are These the Top 10 Heavy Metal Guitar Riffs of All Time?. Ah, the memories!

Anyway, here's another one from the WatchMojo.com gang: The Top 10 Female Guitarists of All Time. Do you agree with their choices? We don't want to give away any surnames, but let's just say there's a Joan on this list, and a Nancy. There's even a Mary—and a Marnie. We'll leave the rest to you.

Be sure to check it out (and, of course, complain in the easy-to-use comments section) below.

By the way, to see a jaw-dropping new video by 17-year-old French shredder Tina S, who is not on this list (which was created in 2014), head here. Enjoy!

Damian is Editor-in-Chief of Guitar World magazine. In past lives, he was GW’s managing editor and online managing editor, and his non-Pulitzer-Prize-winning stories have appeared in Guitar Aficionado, Vintage Guitar, Total Guitar and countless other publications, including 13.7 metric tons of daily newspapers. He's written liner notes for major-label releases, including Stevie Ray Vaughan's 'The Complete Epic Recordings Collection' (Sony Legacy) and has interviewed everyone from Yngwie Malmsteen to Kevin Bacon (with a few memorable Eric Clapton and Ty Tabor chats thrown into the mix). Damian, a former member of Brooklyn's The Gas House Gorillas, was the sole guitarist in Mister Neutron, a trio that toured the U.S. and released three albums (one of which appears in the 2015 Disney film 'Tomorrowland' starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson). He's in two NYC-area bands and plays Teles with four-way switches, B-benders and semi-snazzy aftermarket pickups. He quotes Terry-Thomas twice daily.
