classical nylon are really the best guitars

surreal
incorrect steel string classical style is superior

SalemJeanette
steel was pwned in that poll. andy mcsomething my ass

1219sean
It's all about preference noobs

SalemJeanette
surreal go buy a classical nylon. Youre consumed by steel

surreal
I've played nylon many many times. enjoy it, but steel has so much more life

SalemJeanette
then you are lost

SalemJeanette
nylon has real feeling

surreal
you just have never experienced a good steel sound

surreal
I pity you

SalemJeanette
i've play countless steel string guitars. i pity you

surreal
all of them sucked

SalemJeanette
all of them were masterpieces

surreal
you just have obviously not gained enough levels

SalemJeanette
i can kick your ass in guitar

surreal
sorry salem, no you cna't

SalemJeanette
i can. it's a fact

1219sean
Salem+Surreal go argue elsewhere

surreal
I am fact, and I just said you can't best me. sean is the only one taking the shoutbox seriously today

SalemJeanette
i am the ultimate fact and you cant best me. lol at sean

surreal
Nah salem, you've already lost this duel.

SalemJeanette
thats what you think. but i won before the duel started, you just didnt realized it

surreal
Salem at least I DO think. you never gained that ability

SalemJeanette
getting of topic because you cant best me? pathetic

surreal
the only pathetic one here is you. If you're so convinced, by all means, show me

SalemJeanette
i challenge you

surreal
Alrighty, fingerstyle contest.

SalemJeanette
set the date

surreal
anytime, even today though we would require judges

Vic9mm
ill be a judge. but im partial to both of you tho

surreal
hello jacob, salem challenged me to a fingerstyle duel.

Jacob31593
!!!you gonna do it? :p

surreal
I'm pretty down

Jacob31593
you gonna play 'you' XD. salem what song are you gonna play for your battle with surreal?

SalemJeanette
dont know jacob. any recomendations?

Jacob31593
you guys should set a deadline

SalemJeanette
probably i have cheap worn out strings. right now i would play pieces of songs. i think another arni is the only full song i know at the moment

Jacob31593
salem make a topic about it in the projects/competions board so a deadline can be set and stuff

SalemJeanette
how about a week?

Jacob31593
salem you better start learning a song for your battle, surreal told me he already has one

SalemJeanette
how about 3 songs?

surreal
mkay

SalemJeanette
what will be judged speed? technique? effects?

surreal
guitar duels are about technique. it's a matter of overall technique, clean unsloppy playing, grade of song played and anything extra a specific judge likes

SalemJeanette
challenge is on

surreal
mkay

SalemJeanette
one week?

surreal
we playing said songs live?

SalemJeanette
ustreamed

surreal
kay we can simply alternate

SalemJeanette
one week

surreal
judges need to volunteer

Anyone who wanna judge is welcome.
Guitar battle set to 30/07/09
Hour: still to be decided.

I think I prefer steel string acoustic. It sounds so much more full of life compared to nylon. But in the end, it depends on the piece you're playing. But yeah, I much prefer steel. And yes, I've played both. Steel has way more zing.

False dichotomy- The answer is steel and nylon.

You know what's better than any one guitar that can do some things well and not others? Two guitars doing the things each is great at, together.

Now kiss and make-up.

Salem - The two songs he

Jacob31593

Salem - The two songs he picked were good and his improv wasnt bad, hes a talented player but i feel he didnt put enough time into preparing for the battle ahead of him, had a few pauses here and there

Surreal - All three of his songs where amazing on both skill level and how well he played them


tl;dr i pick surreal

I have to give my vote to Surreal. I think both played very well, but Jake didn't keep a rhythm as well.

Part of that probably has to do with song choice, but nevertheless that's my take.

Both seemed to be over-reaching on their second songs, and I will give props to Jake for his improv third piece. You should probably improv 1st or 2nd and end with a strong closer, though. Surreal knows this, and cheaply exploited our love for First Ride.

My vote goes to surreal, he picked some great songs and played them nice and fluent (sometimes a bit too fast tho XD). Obviously my fav of the three was your last song, gj XD

Salem I think you should put more time into playing your songs so that you can play them fluently, but I suppose you might've been a little nervous heh. I liked your first song best! :)

I selected the better song played by salem, and same for surreal.
1º song - Salem

He does a good job in my opinion.
The first song he played i think is the highest level of the three of them, very well played and i guess he play i little better than surreal in the first song.

3º song - Surreal

Surreal did a great job on the 3 of them.
In the 3º song he show your trully skills on the guitar, playing a beauty song.

In this time i think the best player was Surreal.

Congratulations for the both of you!
