Just to get an idea of how many would be interested in participating if we have another one, I thought I'd set up this poll.

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

Hell's Yes!
Only play what you hear. If you don't hear anything, don't play anything.

Tentatively, it looks like a good idea if we have the duel in June then?

I was thinking about maybe a max of 4 stages. That leads to a maximum of 16 contestants. Anything under that goes, I guess.

wtf is the point of these blues duels again? or are they just for fun?


They're just for fun. However, a lot of people get to listen to your music and give you constructive (and sometimes harsh) criticism. You get to know your strong and weak points, and there are some brilliant, sophisticated players on this forum. You get to learn a whole lot about recording, arranging, and presenting a track. Its the only place where a noob would get to go up against a master and have the master tell him what's wrong, outside of a classroom.

For me, it has been one of the greatest learning experiences.

Also, for the same reasons, I think it would be a good idea to use the same backing track. Perhaps someone could put up a link to some backing tracks? We could either select one at random or vote for it.

admirable incentives, but I wonder if those goals are really met. nevertheless.


It depends on you, actually. Put the effort in, and its definitely bound to pay off. As for someone more experienced who's competing, it hardly takes a few moments to give you pointers.

It's fairly straightforward.
