Well we are almost finished with round one, this duel and one more left to go!

This week its Carswell98 vs. ECisthebest, both excellent guitarists! Good luck to both!

Carswell98: "Frosty"

ECisthebest: "Blues Jam in C"


May the best bluesman win!

After a couple listens, I liked Carswell's piece better. A little sloppy in parts, but I just found it more pleasing to listen to.

good job to both of you though.

Tough one here, both great jobs! I think I'm going to have to actually abstain from voting on this one. After a few listens to each, I just can't pick a winner.

Gonna be another close one I think. I liked EC's better but hated the tone. preffered Carswell's tone but ECisthebest's just seemed cleaner and more interesting to me.

Good work both guys though 2 really good entries.

carswells was more solid, EC had a better tone, but carswell had a better blues feel, and thats what its about.

I PM'd one and they didn't do anything... I also PM'd one to ask if they could close the other one...

Hmmm... Maybe I didn't. I just looked through my PMs and I sent one out last duel, not this one. I could swear I sent one out though

I feel so anyway. I think the emotion kinda got lost (for me anyway) in EC's.

So after a long conversation with GD... we decided to come to a verdict! Basically, we both voted for Carswell98 in the poll, so we decided that Carswell98 would be the winner. We didn't need Neil's help as we both liked Carswell's better and the votes would have ether been 2-1 or 3-0. So yeah, there you have it.


Carswell98 moves on, and ECisthebest is eliminated
Great duel guys.
