    This is a very epic battle with 128 guitar players. That is right I said 128! So if one of your favorite guitarist isn't on this list then either you like very obscure bands or you don't like guitar players. I tried to get a very wide variety of players and I think most will be impressed. There will be a lot of parts so be on the look out.

    RULE: ONLY VOTE FOR ONE GUITAR PLAYER PER GROUP

    Yeah, Rich is the lead but Kerry is the main songwriter and sometimes a lot harder to come up with a riff than a lead solo ;) Just something about Kerry I always liked. Both great guitar players to me.
