Well, a hard fought competition, and especially close in the intermediate category!

Let's take it category by category.

First, in the beginner category, the judges were unanimous:

Great video too, although we based the awarding of this purely on playing ability, tone and feel.

Next, in the strongly fought intermediate category, the judges were split between Dexxter, Kaznie_NL and Superize, their ratings for tone feel and playing were practically identical, and all three of you nailed the tone and feel. However, sadly there has to be a winner, so we finally settled on:

Dexxter


In the advanced category, the judges were again unanimous. Noone completely nailed it but we were impressed with how close you both came. The winner for the advanced section is:

An honourable mention goes to Rik for the absolutely cutest video of the lot!

Congratulations to the winners, and commiserations to the losers - all entries were well played for their respective levels, and I am proud of you all!

If the winners will PM me their real names and addresses, we'll get the prizes out as soon as possible!
