    nice, really dig the harmonic minor passage at :32, got my 11

    and by the way, my guess is this competition will have little or nothing to do with the actual voting results, as the 'Guitar Idol" from last month turned out - the judges inevitably just chose the best/most interesting players...Maybe it will help separate the horrible influx of guitar wankery from the actual players, but it won't select the winners by any means

    I have the concept, we need to miniaturize it though.

    kind of, check this. I added some guy to my msn, and he tells me to try out the white 1.5 tortex with the sharp tip. i bought 2 of 'em a few days later, and lemme tell ya, they're fucking louder. I could not believe it. I'm having a few teething probs with it (the black ink runs and the grip is pretty shit), but I think I'll go between the jazz 3's and this pick..I never thoughtI'd like another pick, but I do.

    I think Shred Durst will do a review of those picks soon.

    thanks, and i totally agree. I pretty much hate all kinds of art contests in general, because it's such a subjective thing. But in this day and age of life, I need the exposure, so if it means doing something I really don't wanna do for the sake of getting a bit of attention or maybe even some more students, I'll give it a go. Anyone need a touring guitarist? Call my ass. I'm bored!!!

    I'd rather you listen to my band than me being a jackass. I'm one of those team player dudes.

    Got an 11 from me. Owned just about everything on there. a lot of those videos are just bad. I saw one, i think the kid was trying to look like MAB. Fail.

    Since everyone's doing crazy shred shit i was thinking about (But most likely wont) do a Hetfield like "Rhythm guitar solo". Just find the hardest oldschool all downpicked metallica & Iced earth riffs and jam them together.

    Ha ha. Poop. God I hate poop. I think shred durst should do an instructional vid on how to take a shit. I'm mulling it over in my head.

    I should have probably filmed that on another angle, as the tapped parts woulda looked tough!!

    I talk about that particular style of sweep here:

    Yeah, I'd probably do a couple downpicked things off of Anthrax Among The Living and there's this one cannibal corpse instrumental, it's shred rhythm all the way. It looks like he practiced that shit for a fucking year. I don't know what it's called, but goddamn it's impressive.

    hahaha - nah man, - was just referring to the videos I posted. -Just using your thread to talk about the competition in general.
    The first player is Francesco Fareri - he has two solo albums already and played on Vitalij Kuprij's latest cd

    He burns alright, but he's missing something.
