Gametab's Riff of the Week #7 winner!

After the fingerstyle challenge has progressed three weeks of challenge, riff of the week #7 is finally over.

Speedfreak completely rocked this diminished lick by alternate picking. He was like, sweeps? What sweeps?

Now we all need to prepare to alternate pick sweep arpeggio patterns or else we will never progress to riff of the week #9.

IM READY FOR SOME ALTERNATE

IM READY FOR SOME ALTERNATE PICKING SWEEPS WITH ACOUSTIC FUCK YEAH!!! I really hope this contest comes back to life. Its the only reason I ever touch my electric.

Don't feel bad the

Don't feel bad the fingerstyle challenge has stagnated some as well. Maybe doing this EVERY week as opposed to biweekly is too short a time span...Idunno.

See my suggestion in the 6th challenge. Weekly isn't the problem; having no breaks is.

That's exactly my point is maybe a week isn't enough time. I'm not exactly busy myself but people don't want to rush out a recording they want time to practice the piece and then also make the recording sound good.

real point is, even if you don't manage to master it and record it, if you practiced it, you will have certainly improved! though, it is safe to assume that this, in practice, has discouraged some people. Then again, most of us, the ones who have been actively participating in the electric guitar edition, have indeed been really busy lately lol.

This is the major issue I think. I'm very busy during the week myself and don't get any free time really until Thursday night of any given week. The only reason I've even been on gametabs all week is cause i'm on break xD I say we try a 2 week period or we change the due date for a sunday.

You fingerstylers are just

You fingerstylers are just jealous because you're restricted by a deadline. The electric...is FREEDOM!

Ha ha oh wow, don't incite a

Ha ha oh wow, don't incite a war here! Both styles offer a freedom the other cannot achieve,...believe me man, I love electric, it's versatility(and how), but there's something to be said for classical guitar. It almost becomes a piano in the right hands.

AND

Do I even have to bring up Flamenco guitar? Listen to anything by Rodrigo Y Gabriela, my lord.
And I'm a metal head bro, I don't own an acoustic!

Dude, calm down, it was a

Dude, calm down, it was a joke. XD I love me some fingerstyle too. :P
