Jack Thammarat: lims 2009 lick library

Found this nice little news about Jack. He had a few words in the beginning of the news describing the facts that he did some homework by studying last year’s contest (which I’m sure most serious contenders do). And instead of trying to compete by emphasizing techniques, he put more of his effort into creating “on the way” with melody and fun in mind. He wanted the song to connect to the audience both when it's listened to and when it's played live. (he undoubtedly succeeded). He cited that last years entries that were full of techniques and less musical, appeared to have less responses.
With such strategy to begin with, no wonder he won it. That's pretty smart. This is a “competition”. He obviously did everything right. Something some of us can definitely learn from. He certainly can do very technical stuff too (as evidence in his other youtube videos), but he chooses not to. Congratulations again Jack. You deserve it, really. And thanks for a wonderful entry.
Here's the news clip (with another different but really nice little ending of the song):
