Guitar solo competition - ENTRIES NEEDED Answered

I had this idea in a dream yesterday night. It involved me performing live (with a jackson king V) with megadeth and doing a guitar solo, which I won an instructables shirt from. I thought about it, and I guess it could work (without the prize, of course). Your guitar solo must be 30 seconds long at least, and anywhere up to 2 minutes. It can't be in sound file format, it must be in a video with sound (preferably youtube or similar). At the end, you must state your instructables name so I know it is you. You must also play to a backing track. I will post examples at some point, but you can make them yourself if you wish. I will need:
3 non-participating judges, preferably with musical experience. (Rap does NOT count Dj).
As many entrants as possible!
I will be entering as well, so I will not judge.

The solos must be marked on:
Musicality /10
Technical skill /10
Scales used /5 (1 point for each, 5 being maximum)
Complexity /10
Fluency /10
Enjoyability /5
Total: /50.

The Judges:
HIVLTGE1

All entries must be in by March 1st 2010, then judging commences. The player with the highest total mark out of 150 is the winner, and will receive a prize of some sort. Perhaps a patch from a pro member, or a rating. This is chosen by each of the judges. Good luck, happy soloing!

I'm going to ressurrect this contest later in the year because I didn't get as many entries as I wanted. I really liked your solo there, it has a lot of great stuff in it. I'll make sure to message you when I do get round to it.

Grow up. If someone sees your face in a video, that doesn't mean they'll automatically know who you are, where you live, and rape you.

Why the hell should I grow up? I dont care what your name is, I dont care about your DOB or your gender. That last sentence is where you are wrong.
