I don't want to be "rude", but the beginner lesson choice was already made, when the challenges were up for the first time. If I remember correctly nobody uploaded a video, just me and OC uploaded mp3 files with our takes. Still don't know if choosing a different lesson wouldn't be more appropriate:P

Also, can I enter the competition if there is already my take on the lesson in the upload section ( so it is well known that I learned this lesson some time ago, I think that wouldn't be fair to people who would start to learn the lesson from now, ). So I would have to give a try to the intermediate on.

its ok your absolutly right, problem is there arnt too many level 2 lessons available and from Carlos this is the only one sad.gif


however, a perfect oppotunity if you`ve already learnt this one from last time to brush it up and get it perfect.

thank you though, it wernt being rude smile.gif

I think I might give the beginner one a shot.

I have never seen the Rock Solo In Bb Major lesson you are using in the Intermediate Challenge. Thanks for using it so I did not totally miss out. I really like it and think it's doable.

Had a guitar hanging, just about waist high, and we are going to play these things until the day we die.

Hey everyone, heres my entry...

Haven't done a competition since December so i figured i should do one. Did the intermediate lesson this time as well, may end up switching it out for another take eventually...it was fun though and i threw in a few little differences in there including some accidental timing differences im sure...

Also, it was dark so i attempted to use iMovie to brighten it...but that made all the background and quality suck...o well you can see the guitar and i figured that was more important neways

BTW: anyone know what the initial chord is??


Good luck everyone!
