Oh shit, what the hell. :confused: The votes should be more even than that. To be honest, I was not happy at all with my entry :p: But thanks for the votes :)

Well congrats dimebag i admit yours was better but i didn't think it'd be this much between them in terms of votes. I hope you don't mind i voted for mine to try and bring some respectability to it lol. Anyone want to give me some feedback of what was wrong with mine? I have started a list of things i could improve on, basically
Gets a bit rambly in the middle,
Bends are sometimes out of tune
Tone is woeful, (the curse of using an mg i'm afraid)
Any other comments appreciated.

Hope you don't mind me... this may sound a bit harsh but this is what I noticed.

I was going to say most of the stuff you have said... but mostly for me, it's the rambly thing - you need to have more confident phrasing, and it seems like you are trying to play for playings sake, leave some room to breathe! It seemed quite samey all the way thorugh and, Im sure I heard a few out of key notes too. Also, the other guy had clear turnarounds to emphasise the changes, wheras yours did not.

Yay I voted for Jimmy!!! I had to listen like 5 times each though, it is very close! I don't think it's as much of a loss for Jimmy as it looks, this is the closest one I have seen yet but the votes aren't showing that, which is a shame :(
Well done to both of you anyway!

I agree with all that especially "this is the closest one I have seen yet but the votes aren't showing that".

they are both really good, and this continues to show that we have a lot of good blues guitarists on UG!

This was a difficult one to choose because they are both very good renditions. Jimmy, if you were up against most of the other contestants, i imagine that you would get through.

My vote goes to Dimebag! Im not looking forward to voting between either Dimebag, Sam_i_am or GDGC although im looking forward to hearing the songs!

I voted for Dimebag, because his was a solid sounding jam with some good licks and tone. I thought that jimmy's was good but he needs vary his phrasing and as somebody said stop playing all the time and leave some gaps. Also his tone wasn't great, and his not choices were odd, I think playing in a pentatonic scale a 4th or 5th away from the one he should be.

Tbh, I don't think this is that even a-duel. If one person's entry sounds clearly better than an other persons, the poll will look like it was a complete walkover when really it wasn't that bad.

Oh and thanks neil!

No, no it isn't Neil. But like you said earlier it does go to show the quality of guitar playing on these forums and in these duels. I don't think i've heard a bad one so far really. And i agree with sam in that really mine and dimebags were too similar really both jams based around blues standards, and with his being better the poll was always going to make it look as if it was a walk over. But anyway congrats dimebag and good luck to everyone in the next round.

why did i miss the entries for this thing??? :sad:



i liked Dimebag22's song selection. Jim's was good too, but he souped it up too much into the Joe Bonamassa/Gary Moore direction...

even Dimo had too much gain on his. but had respectable tone.

Yeh definitely. On the subject of which i'm willing to help organise the next one if GDGC wants a break. It would be cool to have it as a quarterly thing or something but anyway yeah good luck in the next round.
