    I was going to do a poll, but decided not to since "The Best" is so subjective. Here are just a few for your pleasure in no order.....

    Orianthi (25 years old, hot, and a wicked player)

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7b-_YcACuQ

    Bonnie Raitt (tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughn)

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Mylo0piAgc

    Joan Jet (Painted on leather pants, woo hoo!)

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbiYv_lNfFA

    Lita Ford (Fantastic - could be the best female rock guitarist)

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JCLNbW_KPM

    Nancy Wilson (Smokin hot and classic licks)

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFpFBLRQ8Ns

    Jennifer Batten (Michael Jacksons guitarist)

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lEpANGzaqc

    **WTH** 15 yr old guitarist with Sammy Hagar - Desiree Bassett

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVyzuEBFfBU

    Crap, another 15 yr old guitarist - Jacqueline Mannering (the guitar is bigger than her)

    I believe the best is a toss up between:

    Joan Jett and Lita Ford, absolutely amazing players and musicians. Love their music!

    My favorites certainly have to be:

    Joan Jett (The Runnaways, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts)
    Lita Ford (The Runnaways, Solo)
    Nancy Wilson (Heart)
    Donita Sparks (L7)
    Katherine Thomas (The Great Kat)
    Bonnie Raitt
    Flavia Canel (Drain Sth)

    I must say that Orianthi certainly impressed me. My kind of girl, if I were much younger and could play guitar.

    All good picks thor, got to say Orianthi is high on my list of favorites and Bonnie Raitt who plays a mean slide guitar also.
