Thanks ORF, I hope I win too. :)
Actually, as it turns out, the other guy who's my main competition (Tracy Shaun) is a good friend of mine. We had no idea that we would be competing against each other so this has become quite interesting! All of our mutual friends (there are many) want nothing to do with it! Of course I would like to win but I also would like to see it be a close race. ;)

Done. You're up 23 to 14. Good luck! O0

Went to your web site and checked out some of your tunes. I was all prepared to say really good things about you after watching the first two acoustic pieces. Then I watched the last one and realized you were playing a 12 string. I say this in the most loving and endearing way possible...... You suck! I only wish I could play 6 strings like that. :cry:

Ax, Sgt, thank you for the support. I knew I could count on my fellow SG-heads!

Iblive, haha! That's what happens when you grow up in Vermont with NO social life and nothing to do but play guitar. When people ask me how I got good at guitar, I say it's because I never had a girlfriend until I was 24! (sad, but true)

I just know how hard it is to play a 12 string. My first "real" guitar was a Yamaha 12 string way back in the early seventies. It replaced a $25 guitar I bought at the local hardware store. That cheap guitar just about spoiled it for me as the action was measured in inches rather than fractions of an inch.... I'm not making that up.... ok, maybe a little. I bought the 12 string and it was actually easier to play. I still have that guitar....... Actually bought it a year before I started dating my wife.

I still have my first guitar too, a Harmony acoustic from the JC Penney Christmas catalog that I got when I was nine. I don't know how I lasted a year with that thing, I still can't play it! It now hangs on my bedroom wall...

Because of that guitar, if asked, I will never recommend the cheapest guitar in the store. There are a lot of guitars out there that can be bought today in the 200 - 300 dollar range that are quite nice. No, they aren't a $3000 dollar Taylor or Martin, but they're a decent guitar that sounds and plays well enough not to ruin a new player.

Anyway, be sure and let us know if you win.

OK OK, you get my vote. I did a paper in college on "guitar face" listing the various facial expressions of guitarists (the Wince, 'Surprise!', etc.), and I think you exhibit every one in the course of any tune! Nice playing, too. Looks like you're way out front right now!

Cheers!

Thanks D-Day! Yeah, I have a chronic case of "guitar face" when I play. Sometimes when I look back at pictures or video of me, I get kinda embarrassed! :oops:

There is nothing to be embarrassed about- I do the same thing and I'm always told I'm 'really fun to watch'! It's called 'character', I believe...

Since there is no need to sign up, what's to stop somebody voting
13 million times? :)

I think you would need 13 million computers. I wanted to vote twice, once for myself and once for Tracy Shaun (he's a friend of mine) but it wouldn't let me.
