On the heels of my post about ranking the top 100 guitarists, Guitar World has been running a March-madness style “tournament” of greatest guitarists. Readers vote for one of the two guitarists for each bracket, with the winner moving on to the next bracket. Presumably at the end, the winning guitarist gets to cut the net down, or some musical equivalent.
Some interesting pairings are EVH and Randy Rhoades in the upper-right and the possibility of Steve Vai facing his former teach Joe Satriani. I'm not too big on this kind of ranking, but as a sort of abstract exercise this is fairly amusing.
