Taking inspiration from Duck and JB's Gods Of The Cinema Poll, we have now the GODS OF ELECTRIC GUITAR mega poll ..

The idea is the same as the meticulously crafted actor poll, with the only change being to select SEVEN names from each group .. So in this, the first round, you will select seven from Group One, seven from Group Two and seven from Group Three ( twenty one total )

There are 120 names here ... It was agonizing leaving some names off ... I did my best to take into consideration the player's impact, which included his place in history as far as being at the forefront of creating a style, his ability and chops - and how that translated into meaningful and relevant music, etc etc

Depending on how many guitarists Lucas has in the following round(s), we might not know who's actually top 10.

IMHO, Brian deserves to go deep in this tourney though :yes:


Lucas, we're choosing 21 but how many will move to the following round?

How many rounds will there be?

GREAT!!!! I would've wanted 15 rounds but I'm flexible.

But why isn't Woody Allen represented?!

Bogart?!

Also, where's the great English thespian, Martin Barre?!

Horseshit!

Well, it's called "GODS of the Electric Guitar".

You should make a GODDESSES of the Electric Guitar thread.

I know I'd vote for this woman in the first round at least:

One - les paul, gibbons, collins, methany, cochrane, bb king, rhoades
Two - beck, lifeson, may, howe, vaughn, cantrell, morse
Three - johnson, hendrix, king, holdsworth, buchanan, hackett, santana

Two was the hardest group to reduce to seven. Three Was the easiest group.

I don't like obvious choices and the 'flash' guys.

Guys on the list I never heard of, but no Buckethead? WTF?

Certainly a tough decision figuring out the 120 names to put on there without living anyone off (if I had to pick a top ten, only one of my top ten is not included, so I think Lucas did a decent job on the listing).

I shall be campaigning for Duane Allman and Warren Haynes.  Lerxst as well, but being on a Rush forum, I don't think there will be any issues with him getting out of the first round.

I agree with HemiBeers that group two was the toughest to get down to 7.  For me, I only had 5 in group one that were easy picks and thus had to vote for two which I would consider (honorably mentions)

W. Allen is more of a fiddler, or diddler, than a picker.
M. Barre is getting drunk with Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson. Nugent is making fun of them. :(

Great thread btw. I don't know where you find the time!

I'm not doing this one, my input was purely in an advisory capacity. This list is all Lucas though.
