So I was playing guitar with my 2 friends (1 drummer, 1 guitarist) and the guitarist said we should have a battle and now he's invited another guy along to play.
We've also asked a load of other people to come along.
I have a week to get better than them, which is probably not possible.

Any tips on how to get better than them in a week.
My respect in on the line.

edit: I'm screwed, they've both been playing for 5 years, me, 2 years.

Rap is music,far better than metal for example. id much rather hear about hoes and anal sex than dragons and supressed homosexuality.

Should have never got into it then ye donkey. Unless you know how to improvise with style you're screwed. Otherwise its just a crappy guitar strum session with two people. Simple licks are the best - like Tenacious D Bealzeboss after the devil says 'taste this lick its ****ing tasty'.

I was kicking a balloon around, and kicked the back of my other foot.
I broke my toe as a result.

Play a D powerchord palm muted and as much as possible. It's the only way.

as soon as the other guy starts wailing away, smack him over the head with your guitar - battle over! you win!

It annoys me when kids sit there playing the sweet child o mine or smoke on the water intro riff repeatedly
and badly
and so loud the whole shop can't hear themselves think
and with the worst amp settings possible

+1, this, it cannot fail you.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

Learn some simple stuff by awesome guitarists e.g. Sweet Child O' Mine (Guns n' Roses), Always with me, always with you (Satriani). If people know who wrote it and think you can match the writers you gain instant OWNage. Alternatively, use tapping. LOTS of tapping.

Play something that you're reading from sheet music rather then from tabs?
Is it a bad thing if one of your testicles is larger then the other two?

You mean music intended for other instruments? Because music for guitars can be writting in standard notation too.
