Who's the favourite guitarist?

7 Conversations

Come off it, everyone has a favourite guitar player! It's just a fact. And here, we'll show just who the favourite on h2g2 is.

It works like so. You go to the forum there, and tell us who your favourite 5 guitarists are. #1 scores 5 points, #2 scores 4, #3 scores 3 etc. And over time, the results will be accumilated and we'll have a long list of names with their points next to them.

Thanks to Mrgrunt for inspiring this.
