If i played guitar I would have tried to do this.. and probably lost. The winners solo is insane. I actually like the first honorable mention more.

The winner's solo just sounds too busy. Sure he can play guitar and all that, but I'd never listen to that version of the song.

Exactly this. I play guitar, but it doesn't take a guitarist to know that he overdid it.

Edit: They were probably measuring it in terms of impressiveness, though, rather than how well balanced it was with the song. Talented guitarist, no doubt.

I feel like it was just enough crazy. It's not like he's doing some Yngwie Malmsteen shit.

What a cool contest. I don't think the winner overdid it too much. There's a lot of pinch harmonics but I actually feel like that solo is just a less organized very of a Jack O'Shea solo. It matched up pretty well and O'Shea loves his pinch harmonics.

You've got 15 seconds to show your stuff.. With that being said, winner deserved this. Honorable mentions were pretty rad too.

Love contests like these, the winning solo is killer and I really dig some of the honorable mentions as well. I need to keep a look out for these kind of things because I would have loved to give this a shot.

Me too, I felt like it was in place. Even though the winner was crazy good, it was just sounded weird in comparison to the actual song.
