So this competition is called "Guitar Idol", who says that the best guitarist should be an Idol?
If there is a player who plays guitar one armed, he can be an Idol too, not with his playing but for his will not to give up and to make the best out of it. Though, if he is not a nice preson(actu. I no nothing about him) he shouldn't win this competion, because only playing doesn't make you an Idol.
In my opinion it's wrong to say "he should not win, he only gets so many votes because of sympathy"
GMC members get a lot of votes, because they have a great community behind them. Of course people vote because their takes are great, but their is also sympathy involved. I didn't know any other players than. Ivan, Muris, Jose, so I voted for them. Don't get me wrong I voted because they did an outstanding performance, but I didn't see any other entry videos at all.
Is this now unfair? No, I don'T think so, but you always have to take into account that being an Guitar Idol has a lot to do with sympathy.


Yes, I agree with this, smart judgement.

Yeah, you're right. It's not a best guitarist competition.

And I am not sure he is a bad person. Just that he has been very rude towards me and others that has had different opinions than him.
