I was challenged recently to a Guitar Battle by a guy who's been playing for six years, bearing in mind that I've been playing for eight months I didn't answer yet, I want to battle him but the only impressive things I can do are the guitar break of Jordan and the One solo, any advice would be greatly appreciated, Peace and Love

Put razor blades along your fret board just in case the over-the-head smashing doesn't work.

EDIT: People actually do "guitar battles?" What's the point?

Hit him over the head with your guitar. You win.

Also, do you study classical guitar, but are interested in the blues?

start off with a simple ska rythym
odds are he's been so busy learning to solo and shred he can't play a simple rythym never the less a ska rythym
and if he actually used the words "guitar battle" just point at him and laugh because he's stupid and overdramatic

or just quit now, cause the idea of guitar battle is incredibly stupid.

plus from your song picks, your obviously a guitar hero player, and the idea of guitar battle probably came from guitar hero. and over all its really dumb.

its all boils down to who can play the cooler sounding riff.

Yeah seriously, if it's judged by a crowd go for tremolo picking and tapping. They eat that **** up.

no one else has bothered to think how pathetic it is for a guitarist of 6 years to challenge a newbie?? (no offence)

accept, then demand in front of everyone to know how small his penis is coz he has to satisfy himself by pwning a newbie (no offence)

You got it.

The only people who should EVER have a guitar duel are Ralph Macchio and Steve Vai.

No exceptions.

....Serious guitar duels are retarded


Don't get me wrong, two jammers one upping eachother in a friendly way can be fun, but if you've got something serious to settle then a guitar battle is no substitute for a fistfight

I chose a tremolo picking section from a random Trivium song. Entrance of the Conflagration.

Why would you accept? What is he trying to prove? That he's better than you? Obviously, he must be if he's been playing over 5 years more than you.
Peace.

Guitar battles are for idiots who don't know how to play guitar. Ditch that bullshit.

just play for the love of god by steve vai. Then when he attempts to play something laugh in his face. For twenty seconds. Then when you stop and he starts playing again, laugh again. Repeat.

...No.

At least to the first half. I do agree that guitar duels are retarded.

Its pretty easy to beat him. If you just save up all your powerups (especially if you have amp overload and double notes) and use them all at the same time when he has a complicated part you'll be fine. There will only be a problem if he gets double notes, amp overload, or lefty flip on the first powerup part. If he does then its game over.

tapping+tremolo picking=defeat
