Really enjoyed these clips, thanks. I liked the young Korean musician (endorphin rushes!) and Juliette Valduriez (her Youtube channel). Hard rock bliss thrills. Ooooh. Wow. Just wow.

Number 9, fuck yeah honey. By the time your late adolescent rage kicks in, you'll be unstoppable.

I don't know why but this post seems to be of a piece with this here earlier post.

Ass = kicked.

And speaking of ass-kicking female guitarists, holy shit and jesus christ.

This isn't quantifiable or anything, but to my eyes and ears, these players (is it because they're girls?) seem to be in calm and complete control of the instrument, and their own emotions. That's not to say that they're showing the fun of playing (Desiree Bassett!!), but the whole thing looks so elegant and beautiful in its terrifying splendour! MY GOD! When boys do this they're often all about "the show" (long metal man hair flip this, and wank off the neck that), but these players seem to be about getting it right! Not in the boring sense, but in the "Shit man, that was fine!" sense.

Um, well, yeah. I kinda knew that women could play guitar well. Other instruments too, I believe. My, aren't they clever!

Not quite a teenager, and not rock...but one of my favourite female guitarist on Youtube. dracapalley

They will not be unknown for long, I think.

6. Rock like an Egyptian - Her name is Ally Salem, she's from Egypt and she digs '80s heavy metal.

MY GOD! Can we not introduce sports to these young women. Look at the shit they are doing!


Although, in all seriousness...WTF is up with #9. I'd be pretty content if I knew she was as illiterate as the football superstars who don't have time to do anything except practice as a kid.

If she can read...holy shit!

Its because they're YOUNG not because they're penis-less.

Also, as a few have noticed, they don't give off that cock rock attitude; they just play.

I didn't even notice they were playing music to tell you the truth, I thought the post was about deportment.

A friend posted this on their wall a few weeks back. No idea how they found it or who this girl is, but I was impressed.

Well that was awesome. Thanks Ardiril.

Which reminds me that Girls Rock Camp is an awesome thing to donate money to. (link is to Austin, but there are many others!)

I was ready to laugh because LOLBANJO! But damned if that isn't ... wow, um, wait... um. Sublime can't ever be applied to banjo music can it?

If it can, then that is.

That is goddamned something.

Hell to the yes.

Timing is everything. If any one of these gals had come along in say, 1969, she would have be a huge mega-star on a level beyond her wildest dreams. The world so thirsted for virtuoso guitarists and free-wheeling rock chicks at that moment -- and all we got was, Genya Raven, Johnny Winter and Shuggie Otis.

Yeah, Ana Vidovic may be one of the most impressive classical guitarists recently. I went to her master class the day after seeing her perform and it was an experience.

She has recognition though, and is doing well, so that's good.
