    I didn't see this here, and I'm proud to have Kazrog LLC among the companies offering prizes for this contest. There's a lot of talent around here, so I figured you guys should know...

    Ok this is a very emotional moment for me since this is my first necrobump... just..:cry:...give me a moment to collect my thoughts...

    Ok, now that we got that out of the way, did anyone keep a copy of the domination agenda backing track from this contest and is willing to share? Google wasn't really helpful.

    Well, screw you guys, I made my own backing track, with blackjack, and hookers.

    Link in the video description.



    Real pain in the ass to play this solo btw. It kinda looked simple, but if you want to nail all the bends,vibrato, pinch harmonics etc. on one take you can drive yourself mad :p
    I still didn't get it 100% percent, and I might have done a couple of subtle punch ins, but it's pretty close.

    I think you need to find another occupation because you clearly failed as a guitar player!ahah joking, great solo.But can you play smoke on water with groove? Yes that´s another level. :D

    Almost makes want to pick my guitar to play, if I knew how!lol

    That sounds like how I wish my leads sounded, in both composition and phrasing. God dammit

    The phrasing is fucking awesome indeed, but unfortunately I can't take any credit for it, haha, this is the actual solo from the song "domination agenda".

    But I'll take all the compliments about the playing :p Thanks guys.
