Someone (or something?) named Alizee Defan runs a YouTube channel dedicated to incredible female musicians.

At her action-packed YouTube page, which you can check out here, you'll find videos about great female drummers, singers and — of course — guitarists.

Last summer, Alizee Defan ran a contest — or simply created a few videos — dubbed "Battle of the Best Female Guitarists in the World," and you can check them out below.

True to their titles, the clips certainly do feature some fine fretwork courtesy of a host of guitarists, including Jessica Gardlund (pictured above) and, well, lots of other people whose names we can't seem to locate in the clips (although the Iron Maidens' Nita Strauss and Courtney Cox make an appearance, as does young French guitarist Tina S. You'll also see bassist Tal Wilkenfeld, who is, again, a bassist ...).

Below, we've included both videos. The top video is "Battle of the Best Female Guitarists in the World, Part 1." Below that is "Battle of the Best Female Guitarists in the World, Round 2."

As always, enjoy! And feel free to comment ...
