Im sure that you've seen these before, so i won't go into the rules too much. Basically, you take 1 point off one guitarist, and add that point to the guitarist that you think is the best. Eventually, we'll be left with one guitarist who will be crowned as THE BEST BLUES GUITARIST EVER......according to ug.

Albert Collins - 10 points
Albert King - 10 points
BB King - 10 points
Buddy Guy - 10 points
Elmore James - 10 points
Eric Clapton - 10 points
Freddie King - 10 points
Hubert Sumlin - 10 points
Jimi Hendrix - 10 points
Luther Allison - 10 points
Muddy Waters - 10 points
Robert Johnson - 10 points
Stevie Ray Vaughan - 10 points
T-Bone Walker - 10 points

I can't accept additions to the list, because once the contest is underway, it would mess it all up. Also, too many guitarists would take forever to finish, and we all know that there aren't that many regulars in the B&J forum!

you were ranting about how none of your favourite blues musicians are on the list. I didn't want to film myself shrugging my shoulders, posting it on youtube, and then sending you the link, so i stated that this isn't about YOUR favourite blues musicians.
