    I never heard of this "Orianthi" female guitarist...

    stumbled across a youtube video of her with Carlos Santana...so had to find more of her on YouTube...wow, she can play! Seems to have roots in a SRV heavy blues style...but you can find videos of her shredding with Steve Vai (although I much prefer the heavy blues style).

    Do a search for some of her stuff on youtube...Orianthi

    Good find! I've watched a few videos of her before. Simply amazing.

    Orianthi is good. Makes you wonder if she's Jimmy Hendrix's adopted child. What can I say, big Nicole Richie fan. Orianthi is good. Gonna have to check out a couple of her vids. "shut up and kiss me"? and, "According to you"?, and, an Alice cooper cover? Google is awesome.

    I have been finding things to listen to but im not enjoying it... Im not a big country fan and it sounds like most of the stuff that has lyrics is really leaning that way.
    I would rather just listen to her just shred, no singing just straight up guitar talent flowing through my speakers and soul.

    She is an incredible player. My problem is that nothing she does really seems to have a "hook". Personally I think that's why most people have not heard of her. Just not mainstream and musical. Technically she's awesome. I just don't find it very musical.

    I know, but i think that is what the music biz folk are trying to make her go because to be honest, SRV, Vai, Satriani, Santana all this is a dying market. She excels/totally owns this genre unfortunately, its not a money maker. You can tell it too... listen to some of the some of the song/vids on you tube... there is just nothing there, no passion, no stirring your soul. just cookie cutter countryish/pop stuff. Of course this is all just my humble opinion.
