The new poll appears in Total Guitar magazine and as everybody knows, the results are meant to be ripped to shreds by rock snobs around the world. After checking out this year's winners. it's debatable whether they know what a riff is. Did everyone have to vote from the same Time Life Guitar Gods compilation CD?
