Yea I'm interested,

I've never entered one before so I thought I might try,

I tried doing one take but I'm not happy with it at all. I might upload my takes to youtube as unlisted videos for you to take a look at for feedback, but I think I need to start over from scratch with it if I want to enter seriously. Taking a look through the other peoples videos is scary stuff though, they're so ridiculously good compared to my slop! Will upload my first try when I get home and post a link to the unlisted video on here! If nothing else it'd be nice just to get some feedback on my first attempt!

That david walliams one is pretty killer.



That's my first attempt. It's not done yet, I made like 8 mistakes in that video, and there's bits I don't like. Like the slide I do on the Low E, that could do with being a pick slide really. And I messed up a bend, and some of the legato's not clean enough. And the worst part is the switch from distorted lead to clean lead that happens when it switches to C, it's jarring and horrible.

Any advice/feedback is appreciated!

Hopefully I'll get another one done in the next few days and I'll post that! If I get one that's good enough I'll enter and see what happens!

Up to the the bend around 1:00 I was pretty much blown away man great stuff. But I felt the 2nd half didn't take it any where and I zoned out.
I liked the first minute better than David Wallmans.

Cheers dude, yea I think you're right and I'm gonna try some new ideas with the later half of it. I'm keeping the first half, just trying to clean the sound up a bit I think with a couple of adjustments to it here and there Gonna see if I can perfect it over the week and will do another take by the weekend and post it up on here!

Anyone else got takes to share?
