metaljim won to me, but i think he should have had a different tone i think that would have made it a whole lot better

metaljim pwned sam i am easily.

edit : how do i enter one of these?

Go on the main thread and read the rules.
I give it to metaljim.

I didn't care much for metaljim's guitar tone for this song, but technically much more solid. I thought it was lacking the "blues" feeling overall.

sam i am had a much better start, and better tone for the song. There were flashes where I thought sam i am was going to really rip into it, but it just didn't come. Left me wanting for some solid blues "hooks".

I struggled with that backing track myself, it was hard to get a good feel for the song for me, so I'll commend you both...good job.
i would have to say MJ. sam i am had better tone and a good feel but overall i think jimbo took it. good job to both. nice battle.

Masturbate it off.
Damn they were both good. But I have to give it to MJ just because his comes to life earlier, where as Sam's didnt shine until the end of the song.

Also I guess I prefer MJ's tone

i am going to listen and vote but i think there should be some sort of voting structure in the future?
something like this
1 - 10 10 being the best possible score


Composition(or flow)

i think this would work out better because someone may be more into technique that votes,or someone else more into feeling,or even someone who goes for the overall picture.what do you think?
