meh! owns at phrasing and i love his funkish way of playing

texas db, sounds too much like the white stripes, still, it's really nice

meh gets my vote

i had to vote for meh!, cause he totally kicked my ass. mines really not done, there is supposed to be vocals, but i cant find anybody who is a good singer, so without vocals it kinda of sucked. But meh!s is awesome, some great lead work, very bluesy and funkey.

meh!

Oh man I think your song will be great when you find a drummer, someone to keep that tempo up when it's slow, light and slide would sound awesome. It's an ace tempo and with the slide just sounds cool.

Not that much of a fan of the heavy bits though, meh.

I can't record, I'm **** at computers :haha That's suppose to be a clean sound at the start of mine...lol

Personally, I think they were both amazing recordings, but I like texas_db much more as a guitarist over meh! They're both great though.

i voted for meh as it was more bluesy. one small thing though, the timing at the start isnt brilliant. Ofcourse i cant talk cause mine timing is terrible but its just some constructive critism.

meh!

Yeah whoa they are both killer.

I like Texas DB's better though just 'cos it's got that raw, gritty sound to it that I love.

Definitely hunt down a drummer and singer man and that **** will make for awesome gigs.

Meh! was sweet too, very funky playing and real nice licks but I didn't like the tone so much. Still pwnt though.

I voted for texas.
That sound = excellent.

I can imagine being in the wild west with that.

Both tracks were excellent though.

I go with meh.......i was kinda funky which i dont particularly care for but it had an upbeat tempo, nice sound and good phrasing. Texas' tone was nice but im not a fan of the slow jack white sounding type blues.

Both are really good, except some of the slide tuning is a bit dodgy (only occasionally). So meh! gets my vote.

meh!

I think a tie would be fair.. Both songs are really good and unique.

Who says blues is boring..

Have you saved your vote for such an event?
If so, please vote for texas :D

No offence to meh!, I liked both tracks, but that gritty, cowboyish sound in texas' gets me everytime.

No, I've already voted if you hadn't noticed. :p:

I can easily get someone to come in and vote for whoever they like best.

They both were great, but also very different.

I voted for Texas purely because I'm a big fan of The Black Keys. The White Stripes really piss me off though.

meh!

[QUOTE=HuskerDu]I have no idea what that is.[/QUOTE
It's actually nepOtism, and it means using your influence to help younger members of your family (e.g. giving a job to your nephew or seomthing).

Resiliance
09-17-2007, 06:39 PM
Not necessarily younger family members.

Bluesbreaker7
09-17-2007, 06:58 PM
Strictly and originally it is: "nepos" means grandson or nephew in Latin. But yeah, it can be used more generally.
