Finnish guitarist Elmo Karjalainen has made it into the top 8 the Guitar Gods Festival competition. The top 8 are set to play in Miami on February 19.

The show will also feature appearances by Yngwie Malmsteen and Steve Vai, two of Elmo’s biggest influences, plus a whole host of other stars.

Among the other finalists in the competition are Elmo’s countrymen Janne Nieminen and Emil Pohjalainen, who entered the contest as a duo, so Finland is strongly represented.

The purpose of the competition is to find the next guitar god to carry on the guitar hero tradition. The winner of the competition will be awarded a place on the Axes & Anchors cruise along with some of the biggest names in guitar, including Yngwie Malmsteen and Zakk Wylde.
