Well, This is very Slash inspired, I used my Epiphone for it, and used a lot of bends to make it emotional. Not emo/pop punk emotional, but a november rain epic solo emotional style.

I hope you like it, and I hope I win, because I'm not a fan of my Marshall MG, and I would LOVE a JCM800, its my all time favorite amp.

Please recommend a name for it as well!

You really love the 12th Fret E minor scale don't yeh...You should vary it up a bit and go across the fretboard too with the Eminor starting at open E and ending up at fret 12...

But it's a decent start

It seems pretty cool. One gripe I have with it though is that you seem to always be in motion. Try targetting chord tones and sustaining them every now and then. I don't think there's anything bad with playing in one pattern for a solo every now and then, but if you haven't gotten to the point where you can solo all around the neck I'd definitely would work on that.

Not bad...

but yeah you do like to play in the same spot. I did the exact same thing for 2 years of my soloing. Did you take lessons? cause I didnt, and got myself in the 12th fret rut for a while.

A good way that I suggest to get out of that is to solo acoustically. It'll really do you wonders. You'll clean up your picking cause you cant gorge it with distortion, and it'll make you want to solo in different areas and not want to bend as much, cause bending the whole time isn't good, but not bending at all isn't either.

If you can't get a hold of an acoustic just go clean on your guitar and try to focus on playing on different parts of the neck. You'll win the contest in no time if you work at it!

I took lessons for a few months, and I can play places other than the 12-15 fret area lol.
