Man those both were good all the way though, but I have to go with aetherspear. It was like he was channeling T-bone Walker. And I like the backing track.
meh!

have to go a with aetherspear as well, Urik, you could do so much more with the chords in that. It wasn't just a 12 bar.

I didn't like either of them...
So I'm not gonna vote until I'm persuaded otherwise
But good luck guys.


I actually agree with you on this one. I liked atherspear's a little bit more because it was less sloppy. But I really didn't enjoy either.

Sorry guys

aetherspear: While I liked yours, my perfect blues song has a much longer solo than the one you included, although your chord progression was nice.
Urik: I wasn't a fan of the start (I don't know why) or the length, but as the song progresses you display your talent of blues playing. I think you got a tad carried away (nearly 7 minutes?), I would've trunkated it to 5 minutes at the max. Either way though, it was a very well played piece.

Overall: I liked Urik's better because he displayed his skills fully, whereas I felt as if I was left guessing to the extent of your skill aether. Urik gets my vote.

To both of you: My advice is this: find a median between both of your songs. I liked aether's chord progressions and for the most part I liked your soloing Urik, but after 7 minutes of it it got a little monotonous.

Just my two cents though, take from it what you will.

Yeah that's a great advice. But well I think that it's better than my original idea of making the 13 mins "Jimi Hendrix - Machine Gun" .
Though yeah I overplayed :\. Some minutes would be way better.
And congratulations Aetherspear (the duel isn't over but it's pretty obvious that you're going to win). It was a great entry.

Both were very nice. If Urik's wasn't so sloppy I'd of gone for him, but aetherspear took it for me. Not that my opinion matters at this point.

I'm really not sure which I like better, I like both a lot. I have to admit, I have a thing for the blues (no one usually sees this side of me though), and you guys both did great.
