Well that sucks! Nor sure how they will manage this. Here is an excerpt from the "rules"

USM claims no right of ownership or affiliation with any other brands/trademarks, of other guitar or musical equipment manufacturers, visible in videos submitted by any entrant.

Now I'm a bit confused...

How do you find that anyways? Maybe there are something similar too over the internet.

I watched like 15+ entries from there.. I think Emir could win this no problem, there are really no pro players.

Told you! laugh.gif
I think it`s worth time.. And you have two videos, so you can show them completely different styles or som. I bet they never heard of sevdah metal wink.gif

Oh, and I think video, backing quality will sure play a great role too, cause in some entries there are dark like in the ... And quality of recording is horrible biggrin.gif

The bass player of my band has a Washburn Bass. Does it count?. Could we turn on the distortion on the bass and record a riff with it?. Jejeje
