I've gone with bluestube. Not keen on Rubbersoul's tone, if I'm honest.

I'd say the same, too much of something in Robbersoul's tone

Bluestube, amazing, simply beautiful!
Rubbersoul Worried me, it sounded really metal concidering it was for a blues duel

Bluestube your tone is excellent, the playing is on point with good use of phrasing and mixing up your playing. The only things I hear wrong are a few very minor mistakes and a few bends that are a bit off. Fanstastic job!

Rubbersoul your playing is also good, but you need to work on putting your playing into distinct licks and phrasing. In this track it seems like you're noodling in a scale. A good blues solo should tell a story, especially when the song one chord like yours is.

My vote goes to bluestube

Bluestube I really loved your punchy, warm and thick tone. Great playing as well, nice use of that bend sequence, while sounding stiff, A really good feel.

I can't understand what you're trying to do with this Rubbersoul. The tone sounds like a mix between shoegaze and boosted metal. I didn't really feel the solo, could have used more variation, the whole song is too overpowering in my opinion.

I voted for Bluestube.

blues tube is more trad blues, and more precise maybe

Guess I f*cked this up pretty badly. I was trying for a dirty, laid back feel but obviously got it way wrong! To be honest, I wasn't sure it was the right choice of track but time got away from me and I had to put something in - not making excuses, just sayin! I hereby concede to bluestube, who is clearly the better entrant, with as much dignity as a battering like this can allow.
