6 Of The Most Vicious Guitar Battles

March 28, 2018

A good old-fashioned duel dates back far into the middle ages when knights would joust on horseback. Fast forward in time and pirates and swashbucklers would be dueling with swords. Then in the wild west, gunslingers would duel each other at high noon at the OK Corral until there was one man left standing. Over time duels remain the same, but the weapons have changed. Because in the year 2018, we don't duel for our lives with guns and swords. Instead, we duel to gain the favor of the crowd with guitars!
