how do we vote?

on the whole song (backing track part of the package) or just the solo?
There is so much free time in college.
Thus I procrastinate.
Thus I get better at Guitar.

Shark: You mind if you tell me where you got that backing track? I really need another one. I really didn't mind this Jam. Good work.

Neil: I really love this song, and I think you did it justice. That being said, I found Shark's song a little more my style and I really like the improvisational skills. You did a very good version of this song, but I liked Shark's more.


My vote goes to Shark.
Good job to both though.

and 2.) Have you sent me your song yet? I was going to put your duel up, but I can't find a song from you.

Ok, It's up. I don't really like it because my mic makes my tone sound like **** but whatever, it's better than my videos.

Alright, i got it. Now i just need to PM JimmyStradln to get his, but I cant PM on this computer, so Ill have to get on my other computer, damn it

Well your hideaway sounds cool man, I like how you did it in the major pentatonic box starting on the 9th fret as opposed to doing it with open strings (if you did it that way, it sounds like you did).

Yeah I did it in the box, I just like it better cause I can vibrato the last 'F#'. I'll PM him for you.

I might re do it if he doesn't have his ready. I'm not really liking it at the moment. =|

I already PM'd him, but yeah I know what you mean about the vibrato, I think it sounds cooler that way. And if you redo it, I would suggest that you turn the guitar up a little more, other than that, it was pretty awesome.

Dimebag22,

My vote goes to shark38j b/c I liked his improvisation, though, I will admit the beginning sounded a bit weird and out of key. Once he got into it, though, it was good. Nice job to theneildeal as well, but I just didn't like it as much. Good job to both, though.

I tried to do something new at the beginning, and it didn't really work out. I need to practice it somemore.

Nope! I think if you would have put up a Jam you might have one. That's just me though...

Where do you get your backing tracks? Guitar BT isn't working right now.
Known.
Some.
Call.
Is.
Air.
Am?

Incoherent - yes.
Without meaning - I'm afraid not.
