Sehr cool, Rockerbraut!

Now...where is the mega-bad take you announced? This was pretty great!


I subscribe to that, my German amigos!

Alrighty ladies and gents! It's time to announce the Challenge Yourself Competition's winner! biggrin.gif

Let's review the takes together first:



Jessi - ladies first smile.gif Your timing is excellent and it really looks like you have made progress! Remember how in the beginning you couldn't shift chords? Now not only that you shift chords but you also groove biggrin.gif Congratulations!



smolentsev - Top notch man! This looks and sounds totally rad to me! I like this sort of playing, even though I am not a practitioner and I can say you did a great job through and through!



Ulrik - This is a very good effort! Slide playing is not easy and it needs a certain degree of accuracy which you focused on pretty good out of what this takes shows. Nice going mate!



Opetholic - Hey there amigo biggrin.gif I know you very well and I know what you usually tend to play smile.gif This is pretty darn out of your comfort zone and I think you did a good job covering it - tone wise, feel, timing! Very good!



DeGroot - Awesomeness! Great tone and interpretation smile.gif My friend, I think you can do a good job covering more stuff than you know wink.gif



Bas Cuthach - Hey Bas! As you said, slow bends are pretty difficult at first, especially if you haven't had to deal with them before, but this is a good start! Practicing them will help you develop a good bending technique and a whole new level of self expression on your instrument!



maharzan - Chandra, I think your take is good and despite your worries, it turned out great smile.gif Please check the guitar tuning a bit and everything should be well biggrin.gif



Rammikin - You have clearly surprised me with this take - far away from the usual stuff you like to play. Focus a little bit more on the timing and the roundness of the notes, to fit the atmosphere of the style even better!

Well, these were the takes and considering the boldness, artistry and ambition, it's a pretty hard decision biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif BUT, I think the prize should go to ... Smolentsev! In my opinion, he chose a difficult style which had absolutely NOTHING to do with what he has done before and it looks like he has worked a lot to provide this take! Plus.... I CAN'T GET THAT GROOVE OUT OF MY HEAD! laugh.gif Joking aside, he did justice to the piece and transmitted the message - what more could you ask for?

Congratulations to you mate!! Congratulations to everyone else and believe me, this was HARD - you all did an amazing job!!

Until the next one stay focus and practice hard... after the Christmas food coma is over, as Patrik berg would say biggrin.gif!

Cosmin

Congratulations Smolentsev! Awesome entries everyone. Thanks Cosmin for your feedback. I did tune the guitar but not sure if its my playing. I always have that "out of tune" thing in my recording... sad.gif

Wow! What a wonderful surprise! I'm happy so much!

Thanks Cosmin for your feedback! You right - that style was completely new for me. Every evening from 4th to the 21th I practiced this lesson. I started with slow tempo (about half) and it was not sound good enough. My girlfriend had to hear all those slap sounds and I guess she wasn’t happy smile.gif But then it all began to sound good, I started to increase the tempo and until I finally reach the 100% speed. I did not expect that I would succeed so quickly and now I’m really happy now.

Thanks everyone who took part in this competition! I hope you're not too upset that I won wink.gif
Enjoy Christmas and New Year!

Artyom.
