Jilax - Sounds really Jimmy Vaughn at the start, although it wasn't recorded well I can hear the good tone underneath it all ;). Seemed to get lost a bit at times (during the middle), but that's all good, one take jam etc, we all do it, especially over a long track. Came together at the end, you seemed to loosen up and play yourself a bit more which was cool to hear :]

Salmon Philippe - Cool track. Overall as a track it was better put together than Jilax, the two parts mixed well. The whole track just fit well as a piece. None of the playing was AMAZING, but nothing amazing was needed to make the track great

Tough one, both tracks really diff, one more of a instrumental song, the other more of a blues improvised song

Gonna go with Salmon

I went with Salmon I really, really loved the feel and the tone on the track. Great slide playing.

Jilax is an amazing player, had really nice dynamics and tone.

This was a hard one to pick.

Well, the beginning was meant to be Jimmie-ish :p: (Not that I can really get close :haha)
It was recorded using a laptops mic, so naturally a lot of the tone is lost, which is a shame. But, eyh. I guess it's a good excuse to buy a good mic :D
Yeah, the middle was a bit Jammy and when listening to it, I know what I would've done differently. But, I'd rather leave it as it is, than do 10 takes and kill the feel for me...
Thanks for the kind words :cheers:

Thank to you too Hendrix :)


Well, Salmon. Looks like it's gonna be a close one :o

i went with salmon philippe because although I don't really like acoustic, this one stood out a fair bit. I liked it.

Salmon's acoustic playing is really nice. Liked the laid back feel and the balance of the 2 parts. Really enjoyed Jilax - some nice licks and great tone - even for a laptop mic! Jilax got my vote.

I went with salmon, but I'm a sucker for that style.
Thought it was really fantastic, nice percussive playing, nice slide overdubs, kind of fell apart over the solo around 3:25-3:40 imo, lost a little structure and got busy, but overall I really enjoyed it.

jilax, I thought you had some really tasty licks, 0:22-0:42 were probably some of my favorites, just really great phrasing. I was getting some bad clipping the whole time which made it a little harder to get into. I agree with carmour on this one, the middle seemed to be kind of wandering, but I enjoyed the beginning (being a jv fan) and end as well.

Very good entries gentlemen

Salmon's stood out more for me. It was different. I love the tone of that acoustic guitar. I voted for him.

Great playing to Jilax though.

Loved them both.
