Congrats, Merisan. Good job also to second-place tie Idiot Kings and Reist. Having tied for second twice, let me say, that's no loss either. 8)

Nice fight, guys!

Haha ... I didn't notice I got some votes until you said that. Thanks to all who voted for me! 8)

I voted for Merisan in this fight and EPP in the other, so I guess I have a good eye for winners!

Thanks everybody! It's Merisan's first win. Huge thanks to Erik again for the great lyrics without which we wouldn't have been able to enter.

One point where I might trouble you (or those others who have yet to review) to elaborate: Since you don't like the distortion on the acoustic solo, do you have a suggestion for how to record an acoustic solo so that it doesn't wind up "hiding" in the other guitar's sound? Distorting it was the only way I could find to make the lead part stand out.
Don't know if anyone else suggested this - but I like to play the solo twice and double track it

Congrats to Erik for making his debut contribution to Merisan, and helping us get a song in!!!
So... when can we expect more lyrics for the next fight?
:wink:
Many thanks to all who voted for us.

On a side note: Reist, your drumming is amazing. Sam and I think that you should move to LA someday and become a session drummer. That being said, let us know when you do, so we can manage you and get our 15%. OK...maybe 10.
Because your that good.
Eeep-opp-orp-opp-opp...that means I love you!

Thanks! If only I could be a session drummer ... just not quite good enough, unfortunately. LA would be a fun place to live though. Lots of amusement parks nearby ... all we've got up here is Calaway Park.
