Re: Jemsite Guitar Challenge March-April '14: OFFICIAL POLL!
FireEagle - Out of tune.
Kyle - Your timing needs work.
XR4 - Pretty good. Hard to build contrast over a static backing track but you do a decent job. Try not relying so much on similar licks though. Bring in new elements and sections where you can, like clean, or chordal passages.
Josephmetal - You're out of tune on every bend, and you need to work on making sure your fast passages are cleanly played - your right and left hand aren't in sync and it makes them sound super messy.
Drew - Good, and your vid description makes it clear you know where your room for improvement is. Good job.
Laobi - Your fast passages are messy as **** dude... what were you trying to play at 1:24? Post the tab and I'll try and record a clean take of it.
Swirltop - a lot of out of tune notes, especially bends. You're also sending a lot of the sustained notes in the solo out of tune by hammering them into the fretboard with "feeling". Less strangling the neck, more playing the note please.
Doriangrey - Nice tone but it's a bit dark and muted, any reason? As for playing, competent decent playing, but too much solo wanders off and gets lost, not enough interaction with the backing track.
fwd2010 - You deserve to win this for attempting to interact with the backing track and create sections a little, even if you did **** up your tapping at 1:08.
