Here are the tracks for the play-off. Several duellers failed to submit anything for this, but the show continues. Top 5 go through (both play-off groups have been merged).

If we're in the play-offs can we still vote (obviously not for ourselves)?

wow, these are all pretty good. But, i think imgooley and j_hunter_hkr are my favorites. the slide guitar from imgooley was really nice, but then hunter's tune was really good too.

Dear Zhilla , if you vote for the others, you reduce your own chance to win, this is a duel, not a suicide !

I did not expect there would be just a few of us left in this round... and I don't understand why some of the best guitar players gave up, but nevermind.
Here are some very interresting things and I liked all the songs here, specialy the ones with slide guitar solos.

-Zhilla : the dialog with the bass is a good idea but it is not always on the right tempo
-Jazzman : nicely done on the accoustic , it was maybe not necessary to sing on it though.
I mean that it would have been more original to make an instrumental out of it.
-Imogley : You slide like god
-Iceman : I love the song and the slide solo
-Hunter : I love the first part with a clear sound, the second part is not that fine , and the crunch a bit lound on it to my taste.
- Rubbersoul : the solo is done with care but there is not a lot of surprise in it, a bit conventional, did you play the bass line too ?

I have a question, are we supposed to vote only one time and for only one person ?

You can only vote once on a poll. After that it shows you the results and highlights the option you voted on, and doesn't give you an option to vote again.

There is some great playing again. Once more, it's a difficult choice. I'm going to have to listen again.

Thanks for the critique, salmon philippe. I'll maybe try something purely fingerstyle next time. Ideally I'd like to record playing my acoustic but I don't have a microphone to record with.

I liked it shrug That was direct? Sounded like the Beatles Revolution tones

Ha, thanks.

It was recorded straight though my JamVox. There is an Acoustic pedal built into the software but if I'm being honest it sounds pretty sh*t! What sort of mic do you use to record?

I kept it conventional because my last attempt at being a bit different got trashed!!! And yes, I played the bass as well.

I would have entered. But I'm new here and not very good.

Next time, though.

I use a simple, cheap as hell, Chinese made condenser/PC mic for acoustic and a cheap as hell Swedish made mic for electric. I usually use either my Vox Valvetronix amp as a pre or my Vox DA 5 as a pre. Into the soundcard, into audacity. I'm trying to start using Reaper, and I plan on picking up another mic (I use a 2 amp setup, but use 1 mic to mic both amps), a multi channel stereo mixer and USB preamp soon.

Once I get out of the Air Force, I plan on getting a decent machine just for recording.

I wasn't expecting any votes either - I'm still in shock lol And I have the same problem with the next round...I'd kind of assumed I wouldn't need another track
