If you guys don't mind, I think we should do another Blues Guitar duels/tournament. Sign-up is here! No more people allowed after September 1st however.

The rules are simple: I'll pair you up with another UGer, and we'll have a face-off. The one with the most votes in a poll goes onto the next round. Loser is well..a loser.

If you're going to play with accompanying instruments, your opponent must do the same, unless of course they don't care.

More rules and info later after we have more people!

id sign up but all i have is a few old recordings. but if thats ok then ill enter. well it would depend on if there are rounds and how many. i have two instrumental solos so if it needs to go beyond that then i guess i lose lol. also one is more rock but all my songs are blue based. the one just has a hendrix type tone to it. but yea i dont have any recording stuff around so i cant do anything new unfortunatly.

You can buy a cheap microphone that works good at Walmart for $10-$15. Then just download Wavepad.

As long as it's yours that's fine. I guess rock's ok, but just make sure it has some key to blues. It will be based off of rounds. If you need recording stuff, do what I said a few lines up. *points to above quote*

I'd like to give it a try...I'm absolutely terrible at improvising though so I'd like to use a backing track, it at least helps to make my crappy soloing listenable.


I'll prolly just end up embarassing myself, but what the hell.
