I’m surprised Jimi Hendrix isn’t missing from this list

Initially voted for Jimi, didn’t need to read the rest, but then when I saw who was missing….with all those other names lol…I went back in and removed my vote in protest.

I don't mean this as a criticism of the poll, but (a) there are many names on that list that I don't even recognize and (b) most of the guitarists I like best aren't on it. All I think this shows is that any one person can't construct a very comprehensive list b/c there are so many guitarists that we enjoy.
