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.

Beatiful, man. Really liked all of it, kept me listening for the whole thing. Good luck, I'm extending the deadline because of lack of entry.

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.
