    Here's the audition video:

    I know there are some capable guitarists here (Arcane :wave: ) so it would be nice if they gave it a shot. An event like this should be fun! Good luck to everyone that's willing to try!

    PS. Off-topic but I don't like Alexi's new tattoo at all, I don't think it looks good. Of course, he has done it for a reason so there's not point in arguing about that.

    EDIT: I just realized this is already posted in the Misc. videos thread, sorry.

    I think it's good to have a thread for this. That riff is damn easy to learn tho, took me tops five minutes to learn that. I've been watching few of those auditions and majority of them are pretty bland and most of them even play the excerpt incorrectly so the level of quality ain't too high. I haven't made my own audition yet, but I'm gonna do it after I get all of my school projects done. Would be kinda cool to be able to participate but I really think my chances aren't that good but you'll never know before you try it.

    I think it's leftover riffs. Like that Sioux City thing.

    alexi is reviewing video entries.

    just a little spoiler for anyone who entered a video.....

    if you go to your youtube channel and go to analytics you can click on likes/dislikes and it will pull up a graph. below the graph it says geography or something. if your vid got a like from someone in finland you might be in.....if you got a dislike, well......

    Ok, I had good chances then, because most of the likes I get are from finnland :D
    Well, seems I'm a bit too late.

    Would you have gone to Helsinki if you'd been elected?

    Just making sure you're not transferring the accusation onto some other cause.

    For your own peace of mind.

    Yes, I would. I think it's gonna be a lot of fun and I always wanted to return to Helsinki again (been there 15 years ago).

    Well, I got picked, but there's absolutely NO way I'd be able to go. I was laid off from my job about a month ago and still haven't found another, and even if I were to find one now I would probably have to quit it to attend this since it's less than 2 months away.
