Top 10 Girl YouTube Guitarists Who Sing and Play Their Own

Forget Guitar Hero, the real guitar heroes are the ones who get out there every day and record their intimate bedroom (and sometimes kitchen) guitar playing for all the world to see. Guitarists like "Jerry C" who exploded in popularity and became and oft interviewed face in the mainstream media got a lot of attention because of their YouTube playing.

Jerry C played a nice solo guitar rendition of Pachelbel's Canon in D-minor. If you've never seen it check it out here (link opens in new window).

So the guy can play a scorching solo version of Canon in D–big deal, we've seen great guitar solos before, why did this guy get all the attention all of a sudden. Well, while you may have seen scorching guitar solos up close and personal, this was new to a large portion of the online world who either missed the Van Halens of the '80s or only heard but never saw a technical solo played up close. Really, when you get right down to it it's very impressive to watch. The intimate setting of a dude playing his guitar in his room with no distractions, and the added mystery of "we can't see his face, who is he?" really set things on fire. The bottom line is watching amateur guitar on YouTube is a voyeuristic fascinating experience, and for some of us it beckons us to jump in and contribute.
