"Guitar World" recently held an online, bracket-style tournament to determine The Greatest Guitarist of All Time . . . and when it was all said and done, EDDIE VAN HALEN came out on top.
It started with 132 guitarists, and ended after almost a half million votes were cast.
Here's how the Top 10 worked out:
1.) Eddie Van Halen
2.) Brian May from Queen
3.) Alex Lifeson from Rush
4.) Jimi Hendrix
5.) Joe Satriani, who's currently in Chickenfoot
6.) Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin
7.) Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath
8.) Steve Ray Vaughan
9.) "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott from Pantera
10.) Steve Vai
