Alright everybody - I've built a polling page to determine who the greatest guitarists of all time are, according to the people here at BlogCritics.
Unlike the Rolling Stone guitarist list, there's no influence here - I don't care if someone you enter in the poll is world renowned or completely anonymous. Doesn't matter if they've made 50 bazillion bucks or they're hanging out in some local garage somewhere. Whether they play acoustic or electric, jazz or pop, are alive or dead, doesn't matter. All that matters is your opinion!
There's room for 30 entries on the form, the top 15 are required. So jot down the list of who YOU think are the best 15 - 30 guitarists of all time, pop over to www.coloentertainment.net/music_collection/guitar_poll.cfm and vote for your favorite axemasters!
I'm going to tabulate the results when there are 50 or more entries, or two months from now, whichever comes first (when I have the time). I'll post 'em here.
Guitarists will get one point for a first-place entry, two points for a second-place entry, etc. Any guitarist appearing in the poll that doesn't have an entry from a particular person will be given 31 points for that entry. I'll tabulate by total points, with the guitarist having the fewest points getting first place, the second fewest points getting second place, etc.
Additional pointers, rules of the contest/poll, etc. are noted on the polling page.
