Solo competition!
« on: February 19, 2013, 10:22:39 AM »
I'm holding a mini solo competition (as some of you will know from facebook and twitter spamming...)

Any instrument is allowed, but so far it's looking like mostly guitarists, as I expected. So far we have Jim Sanders of Tinyfish, and Mik Crone of Lorenza Woods getting in on the action, me, and a few guitarists I know around facebook. The backing track along with all the current entries are on the Flying Machine Soundcloud page.

Download the track, record your solo, and email it to https://soundcloud.com/flying-machine

Ooh. I wanna try that. :D

Btw, what's the competition? Notes per square inch? Number of goosebumps?

My word, people seem fond of the neck pickup these days (and sweep picking)!

I will have to see if I can coax anything out of Lucifer for this one - watch that space!

When's the deadline, Rob?  I want to give this a go (on keyboard...) and I'm on vacation starting after Friday, so...

Gave Lucifer (different photo this time) a good thrashing (and my fingers) last night with this one and sent my efforts off to Rob.

Very interesting to listen again to what has been submitted so far once you actually have to try and do it yourself! :D

:lol:

E.S! This is no plaice for such bass humour!  I can see you are angling for something...  

Anyway, nice to see some turbot-charged submissions appearing on Rob's Soundcloud.

Jake, come on, submit a tuna - don't be koi!
