    Here's the vote results.
    Enjoy and have fun.


    Track info: Emin, 148bpm, 4/4

    Taken from the original track:
    A section: Em..C.. (Back and forth, chord into B Section is D)
    B Section: G..C..Em..C.D.Em..

    It's a pretty cool sound on this one. Can allow you to do a lot. Also much effects.

    Deadline: 2nd December


    The lovely guidelines/rules as laid out by GloopyJon:

    Firstly, please remember that although this is essentially a sound thing, we'll be making a video out of it and so the visual side is important. I need a visual element of some kind, or you won't make it into the final video. Preferably, this will be a video accompanying your solo, but if you don't want to or can't do that, please send me some pictures that I can do something with.

    Other tips:
    - If you take the video with your phone, PLEASE turn it on its side. Videos in portrait orientation don't look good and might get left out.

    - If you leave some space at the start and end of your video, that gives me some leeway when editing, which can be useful (a couple of seconds is probably enough).

    - Please provide the best sound quality that you can, using your available equipment. If you have specific questions, don't hesitate to ask them here and you will get advice on how to do that.

    - I prefer to receive the solo separately, on its own, and to sync it with the backing track myself. It's not so bad if you have the backing track running quietly under the solo as I can always add another copy to balance the sound; if you only provide one track and the solo is too quiet, there's nothing I can do.

    - If you provide them separately, please give me some indication of how to sync them. If you record the audio separately, it may be that the sound on the video file will be enough. A clap before the start of the track can help because that creates a very clear spike in the audio.

    - If you have the editing skills and prefer to mix your sound and video yourself, then go ahead - it makes life easier for me; I'm just a bit of a control freak and prefer to do things myself in general.

    - Don't be shy about showing your face on the video. It looks a bit odd seeing a procession of headless guitar players. If you're shy, use a pseudonym rather than your real name (most people do this on the forum in any case).

    - Please provide as high resolution as you can on your video. I will render the final product in full HD (1920x1080) so that's ideal. The higher the resolution, the better the picture quality and the more options I have to fiddle with it if necessary.

    - Don't worry too much about video or audio formats, as long as you use something fairly standard. I haven't had any insoluble problems so far.

    - It's nice if I can include details of the gear that you used, so please let me know what guitar, amp and pedals you've used. I don't think we're so bothered about stuff like the mikes or recording equipment / software, but if you particularly want me to include it, that's fine too.

    I have voted for the right choice. There could be another right choice, and there's a wrong choice.

    There's something wrong with the poll software on here. Since I've already voted, I see the results directly and there's a button marked "Change Your Vote". This is wrong - I don't want to change my vote, I want to change the other people's votes!!!

    I'll not vote, as I'm not sure I'll participate, but I'll throw down for editing. :)
