    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 two!

    RULE: ONLY VOTE FOR ONE GUITAR PLAYER PER GROUP

    Toughest matchup for me was Roger Fisher vs. Peter Frampton. I went with Frampton but it was tough. Roger Fisher's work on the first four Heart albums is classic stuff.
