TeXaS_db sounds like Jack White, so he gets my vote, keep the blues alive lads!
Zed: Bring out the Gimp.
Maynard: But the Gimp's sleeping.
Zed: Well, I guess you better go and wake him up then...

i had to vote for meh!, cause he totally kicked my ass. mines really not done, there is supposed to be vocals, but i cant find anybody who is a good singer, so without vocals it kinda of sucked. But meh!s is awesome, some great lead work, very bluesy and funkey.

Oh man I think your song will be great when you find a drummer, someone to keep that tempo up when it's slow, light and slide would sound awesome. It's an ace tempo and with the slide just sounds cool.

Not that much of a fan of the heavy bits though, meh.

I can't record, I'm **** at computers That's suppose to be a clean sound at the start of mine...lol

Personally, I think they were both amazing recordings, but I like texas_db much more as a guitarist over meh! They're both great though.

i voted for meh as it was more bluesy. one small thing though, the timing at the start isnt brilliant. Ofcourse i cant talk cause mine timing is terrible but its just some constructive critism.

Yeah whoa they are both killer.

I like Texas DB's better though just 'cos it's got that raw, gritty sound to it that I love.

Definitely hunt down a drummer and singer man and that **** will make for awesome gigs.

Meh! was sweet too, very funky playing and real nice licks but I didn't like the tone so much. Still pwnt though.

Both tracks were excellent though.

I go with meh.......i was kinda funky which i dont particularly care for but it had an upbeat tempo, nice sound and good phrasing. Texas' tone was nice but im not a fan of the slow jack white sounding type blues.

Both are really good, except some of the slide tuning is a bit dodgy (only occasionally). So meh! gets my vote.

No, I've already voted if you hadn't noticed.

I can easily get someone to come in and vote for whoever they like best.

They both were great, but also very different.

I voted for Texas purely because I'm a big fan of The Black Keys. The White Stripes really piss me off though.

Not necessarily younger family members.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Strictly and originally it is: "nepos" means grandson or nephew in Latin. But yeah, it can be used more generally.
