In just a couple days Guitar Month will come to an end. It was surely a blast! After three solid weeks of thousands of votes and endless debate, we have finally come to the last two contenders in our Greatest Guitar Riff tournament.
Today our battle of the greatest riff ever made, ever played, has come to an exciting final showdown. Both artists in today's poll were immediate standouts when the top 40 contenders were originally announced earlier this month. There is no surprise the focus here lies on Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page. They are, without question, two of the greatest and most influential guitar players to ever record music. Jimi & Jimmy come from the same era, a time when Rock & Roll guitar playing was constantly and rapidly evolving while finding new ground. And lastly, both songs really and truly rock!

Squaring off today in the last and final round is the raw and unforgettable version of "All Along the Watchtower" by guitar legend Jimi Hendrix up against the gritty and bluesy Rock & Roll anthem "Black Dog" by Led Zeppelin.
Who will advance and become our poll's Greatest Guitar Riff Ever? It's entirely up to you!
