    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. This is part three!

    RULE: ONLY VOTE FOR ONE GUITAR PLAYER PER GROUP

    Weis was a founding member of IB and played on one album. I liked both Weis and Braunn. Weis also had some good licks with the band Rhinoceros. It was hard to pick between the two.

    LOL! I just now noticed that. Must have been in the zone and didn't put Aerosmith.
