Darius pumped me a while ago to take part in a guitar contest, so this is me participating in the Andy James Solo contest biggrin.gif

I'm not anywhere near the level of the players who are participating in the contest, and I have absolutely no chance of being even in the top ten but I just did this for fun and experience of taking part in a guitar contest without expecting winning anything, so please don't hate me cool.gif I just came up with a melody, I think I didn't even practice it enough and I just recorded it tongue.gif

Hey Sam! Congrats for entering mate smile.gif

It's not about winning - it's all about gathering experience as a player and meeting people. When you win one, you will want to win another and so on.. But the relationships that you build with people, they can change your life and improve you as a musician and human being!

GMC is the perfect example of international guitar community - helping one another develop themselves regardless of the level or other things. It's a bit utopic, if you ask me, but this place is living proof that it's possible smile.gif

Naah not yet, the first feedback I got on my youtube upload was actually a dislike laugh.gif This competition is a bit different from others I think. Its just like a 53 second take from everyone and then they don't care laugh.gif but yeah it was a pretty cool experience, but I took my time coming up with a half decent melody and then (somewhat) practicing my solo tongue.gif

Yeah, I know exactly what Darius speaks about smile.gif

I received a lot of weird comments on Youtube all the time, so nothing new here - but everything comes with a price, right? laugh.gif

Kidding aside, you should keep on doing things - record, post, get engaged into competitions and collaborations over the internet and so on. This is how you build it mate smile.gif

Yeah I plan on doing that smile.gif still, at least for newbies, getting negative feedback that isn't constructive kinda hits pretty hard, but I just try to shrug it off tongue.gif

Sam - there is a VERY important thing you must know: what's easier? Practicing, trying, working hard and believing in something, or sitting behind a computer screen and writing negative stuff about people who are trying? You choose and go the right way wink.gif You'll see that, time and dedication solve everything together!
