We LOVE YouTube, and we are definitely guilty of spending countless hours watching YouTube videos instead of answering emails. Oops.
Without further ado...in no particular order, we present to you the top guitar YouTube channels to watch in 2019!
FINALLY! We shout "finally" because it is about time that a bad-ass female guitar player takes over and uses YouTube to empower other women to pick up the guitar. Michelle of Guitar Goddess is truly inspiring as she has poured thousands of hours into her amazing channel, and it totally shows! She's breaking the mold and showing women everywhere that they too can be a Guitar Goddess.

A voice and a vibe that is sweeping the music community - the lovely Fatai! She's a force with her one of a kind style and swag, leaving us all just waiting for the world to catch on.
