Alright, you guys know how i was complaning about the Rollingstones 100 greatest guitarist list right. Well i would like U.G. to make a list bassed on every ones opinions of great guitarist. My basic plan for this is for my self to make a blog asking everybody who they thing is the top twenty greatest guitarist. I will waite a week or two for the responces and then talley up the scores and make the list from there. And after i have the top twenty i will ask for twentyone to fourty and so on until we get to onehundred. I promise i will be honest about the talley up scores.
What do you guys think about this plan??
hell run it as a thread or something maybe not the pit but somewhere in a forum or something......thing is i wouldn't be able to pick just one there are too many.....jimmy page, dave gilmour aaahhhhhh which?????? then there's EVH maybe a top 5 or something.......i have no i dea how ya'd talley up the votes sounds like it might hard if ya get a decent response......yer idea....yer call
See thing of it is for me...Is there are so many great gutiarist that span from many different eras and types of music. Just an idea but I think there should be a 100 greatest Blues guitarist, 100 greatest classic rock guitar. 100 greatest metal guitarist. Or try to get the list down to a spcific genra. But I love the idea of a new list cause I didnt like what Rolling stones had to say. Kurt should have been like last.
Thanks for the comments. And Arron, you are right. That may be a little much, so i may do what Dave said and go with specific genres. If any boody wants to help me with this some how it would be much appreciated. If enough people like the idea i will begin with classical rock guitarist like Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and Nancy Wilson.
I wouldn't do it in specific genres, myself. Honestly, I don't think I could even name 100 bands or guitarists, much less 100 of each that I actually liked... You should do a top 50, and have each person vote on their favorite 5. SethMedgadeFan did something like that once, but the asshole never finished it (stupid cunt...). I would do it like this, though:
Jimmy Page: 5
Kirk Hammett: 4
Eric Johnson: 3
You know, just let people give their favorites the most votes and do it in descending order. That way, people don't just have to pick one, but decide who they think is truly better than the other. Ten would probably be best. That would probably give the best response...
That said, I bet fucking John Frusciante makes it top 3.
