Hi everyone! Tomo here!
Here's my solo for the French guitar contest, third take, no editing so there are some mistakes...actually I was too tensed 'cause no editing were allowed so if you screw up the end, you have to play all over again and the time is running fast on the last day for uploading it on YT. Please comment.

I listened to all six songs. You're very creative. It's obvious that bass is your main instrument, some of its lines were great, but the keyboard arrangements sound good too. I like slower, easier parts in your compositions. And I think you'll have to improve the guitar tone.

jaw dropping solo. Not just because of the technique, but it was all musical as well. Bravo.

I'm almost ashamed for a player such as yourself to listen to my meager playing, but a critique from someone who can play like you will hold a lot of weight.

If you think my solo was musical and you like it because of that, then my advice to you is pretty simple: try to be more musical, think what you are trying to say and than express it through the guitar. Speed won't make your songs sound heavier thou it can be cool sometimes. The most evil sounding riffs are always slow (your slower parts sounded good too). And the technique will come with time.
Now how much do you weight and what are your personal bests?

ha thx for listening and the good advice.

I weight 160-165, best lift is deadlift recently got 470. I was on my way to 500 but I hurt my groin (probably why I've been sitting around playing guitar so much).

I've squatted around 450, benched 330 but I was heavier at the time. My squat and bench suck right now.

I'm similar in guitar and lifting, way better then average, but nothing compared to world class

You're welcome! I hope you'll win that guitar, you deserve it!

Awesome phrasing, great tone, very polished technique! Have you composed this solo, or is it improvised? Or maybe a mix of both? Hope you win that contest, you deserve to!

PS: you might want to check out some of my stuff, my tone is not even close to yours but I've put a lot of effort in the composition stage of the tracks.

Thanks, but Ander Nieri already won the competition. And the solo was composed.
I've listened to your compositions, you're very creative and the tone is not that bad at all. Keep up the good work!

Ah too bad! But you're right, Andre is also great. I wouldn't agree about the most of the top ten entries though.
