    Joe Pass is #2 on this poll: Django is 3rd. Kenny and Metheny are tied for 4th\5th.

    I know. It’s a poll which is meaningless.

    My favorite guitarist right now is Emily Remler. Why is she not in the list?
    Another notable omission is Lenny Breau.

    There needs to be two more polls; one that ask how many guitarist should be listed (there are 20 now), and another about who should be listed.

    Of course, I'm joking, but a poll with a fixed-listing of choices is flawed from the start.

    I'd have Mike Stern and Danny Gatton... Also George Golla.

    But an excellent representative list.

    This poll was started in 2007, two years before Julian Lage's first album as leader, a year before Mary Halvorson's debut. Lage Lund had made one album.

    I went back and read the first post by the user that created this poll and here is what was said:

    "Sorry for any shortcomings of this poll, it is only guitarists and obviously there is more than ten around, but thats the max option".

    Note that now there are 20 guitarist listed so that "max option" must have changed from 10 to 20.

    While I would have included Johnny Smith in a listing of 20 jazz guitarist, the overall problem is that there is a list to begin with, but that is the easily way to conduct such a poll; much more difficult for the software being used to allow "write in" choices.
