    How long 'till you post up the backing track?

    Since it's being called a soloing "contest" a method for scoring seems to be missing.

    Many moons ago there was a "Riff-Off in the tips and clips section for which entrants submitted their clips to the host under a name assumed for the contest. I don't remember exactly how the scoring went, but all members were able to vote. It was very competitive and contentious at times as people disagreed on what should be allowed as a "riff". Anyway, it was great fun, and some members still bear their titles under their user names ... like "Riffmaster" or whatever. I believe BD-2 was one of if not the big winner.

    It will go up tonight! Was hoping for last night but hey, life gets in the way sometimes.

    As for the 'contest' well there's no real prize, but if we want we can simply make a poll, OR I can have everyone submit to me directly, I can host them all and it will be 'blind'. Have people vote then the winner / corresponding users will be revealed on the deadline.

    Does that work for everyone?

    i may get in on this. I’ll be in the lower tier for sure. If prizes were given out, I can send a couple packs of Super Slinky 9’a and a minty green Strat pickguard to the winner.

    I personally like the idea of a blind poll… That would definitely make it interesting!

    I take it then that entries will be audio only?
    Really, I don't care how the competition is held, whether it's blind or not. Given that there's no financial risk, I view it more as an exposition. I'm more interested in how different people interact with a common theme.

    Precisely! This is meant to be fun, and to give everyone something to share notes with (pun intended) and stir some creativity. If you want to submit a video go for it!

    for those that want the blind poll, just PM me links or whatnot and I will upload them and we'll go from there.

    Now, to decide which setup I'm going to play through and record with...
    This could take a bit.

    Just wanted to say that this is a really good backing track. Well played and enough changes to keep things interesting, yet nothing esoteric or unfriendly.

    What's the deadline for submissions?

    Think that I've almost got it. The tuning that is.

    Is it possible to download the track from SoundCloud to put into my DAW? Can’t seem to figure it out.

    If I can post more than one entry, so be it.
    Otherwise, this is it.

    Dude, I like how you ended low, where I ended high!
    Mark my words, I hope we get to the end of this thread with a multitrack edited together of all the folks that post a clip in this!

    Cool backing track...sort of a mix between Kiss' Dr. Love and something by Lita Ford.
