These Polls: Am I Just Not Getting It?

Postby doc williamson » Tue Jul 12, 2005 8:23 pm

I just don't understand the this vs. that competition in these music polls. It doesn't matter if it is the best guitar, singer, player or whatever poll. I don't see music as a competitive thing. I see music as a beautiful, flowing emotion. The polls leave me cold.

Me, too. But they're popular on many boards, and folks argue long and hard about pointless stuff.

I don't necessarily get into the polls either,Doc, but I think they do stimulate discussion, and may help to get people to rethink old assumptions, many of which can be built on stereotypes,bogus info., or may be based on experiences from a long time ago that need to be re-evaluated.

Sometimes I actually find these polls useful. The preferences and experiences of BRB members count for a lot when I'm considering future decisions on gear, etc. The replies often contain good details and opinions about the topic.

As for the "This vs. That" poll, I used to be wishy-washy but now I'm not sure.

I like "This," 'cause it's RED! (One thing I agree with Sammy Hagar on!)
