That's a hard one! Matt's composition is very nice and the effects add a great atmosphere and j_hunter_hkr has one of the best tones of the first round imo.
But my vote goes to matt, because I'm always in favour of original compositions.
Why not listen to my songs on my profile?

I'm a sucker for tremolo so I voted for Matt though I did like j_hunter_hkr's tone a lot too.

My vote goes to j_hunter_hkr, because I prefer the style. Don't understand me wrong, Matts is a wonderful composition but it has in my point of view to many effects.

Matt, I like your composition a lot, great chord progression! Very dark and mysterious, the tremolo adds a lot to it. Your soloing is excellent, I like the way you throw chords and octaves in there to mix it up. Great job.

hunter, your tone is excellent, your playing is clean and mean! A few timing issues but nothing serious. You copied entire licks from SRV, I'm sure you can make your own, right? :p It's a well done track.

I'm going with matt for his originality on this round. good job both of you.

Matt - Could have done with an added melody before the solo kicks in to bring the piece together. Your playing sounds pretty intense, has some fire to it :], you kept with the changes too which was refreshing lol. A Intro melody and outro melody would've really brought the whole piece together IMO.
Hunter - I might be wrong, but it sounds like you can't do vibrato at the top of a bend yet ? Some nice playing in there, tone sounded pretty digital though. Nothing wrong with using SRV licks, just make sure to put your own style in there too..

Went with Matt, his won out on originality but also on feel for me too

I voted for Matt's one because of the feel, the tremolo was a great effect and the solo was great.

I'm not a fan of the tone on Hunter's one. I'm not sure if this is just my opinion?

Both had really good playing.

Thanks for all the comments, they're really I helpful. Yes, I've stolen SRV licks, the same way he stole most of his licks

carmour, vibrato on bends isn't usually an issue for me but I'm actually suffering from RSI in my left hand at the minute and shouldn't be playing guitar at all (that's easier said than done!). I'm recording though a JamVox, which is why my tone sounds really digital. It's the only equipment I have to record with I'm afraid.

Thanks again chaps, I'm sure my next track will be a lot better. I've learnt quite a lot about recording and my own playing already!

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

This is the hardest one to call for me so far. I really like both. I love the fact the Matt's is a completely original composition but I think hkr's take on Red House is excellent. On balance, i'd have to go with Matt just because it made me nod my head up and down and smile.

RSI would explain that what a trooper
