    Second almost official iBM Guitarist Poll

    Alrighty dudes (and babes), I unilaterally decided that the time has come for . . . .

    The Second Annual (not quite) Official (not quite) iBreatheMusic Favorite Guitarist Poll!!!

    We did this once before, about two years ago actually. See here , and the results here . Those ancient threads were revived a couple months ago by a few people, and Eric suggested maybe I should update that poll. However, I think it would be cool to just start again with the current population of iBM.

    Give me however many guitarists you want in your list, it doesn't matter. I'll tally the results after a week of voting. I'll post the ranked list when its all done.

    Try your best to spell the names correctly cuz that will save me some work when I copy and paste your lists into EXCEL. And if you change your mind before the voting ends, just add a new post to the thread and modify your list.

    For those among you who are nerds , and want to know how the rankings will be tabulated, you can look at the 35th post in the previous poll's thread, and that explains it.

    If you just can't decide whether Sheryl Crow or Avril Lavigne is your favorite , you can rank them as a tie for first (or whatever) in your list, and it won't mess up the calculations any. Or if you want to give your list of favorites without ranking them at all, that is fine too (although I decided unranked lists will be treated differently than last time cuz those people were slighted a little I think; you don't really want details, do you? ).


    I'll close down the polls next Saturday evening (USA time), November 19. Do your civic duty and vote!

    So, to start it off. Here's my list of fav's:

    1 Stevie Ray Vaughan
    2 Angus Young
    3 Jimmy Page
    4 Eddie Van Halen
    5 David Gilmour
    6 Eric Clapton
    7 Jonny Lang
    8 Buddy Guy
    9 Brian May
    10 Roy Rogers
    11 Randy Rhoads
    12 Monte Montgomery

    (BTW, my #10 is slide guitarist Roy Rogers, not the Dale Evan's Roy Rogers)
    Peace
