DirtBox Competition - Win A Valvette Custom Drive

Prize – A Brand New Valvette Custom Drive! Spanking new, entirely hand-made boutique overdrive pedal courtesy of Johan Maertens of Valvette. Check out the DirtBox Review HERE and head to the Valvette Site for more information.
What Do I Need To Do? – Download the backing track and shoot a one take video (no overdubbing) and then post it as a response to the original contest video.
How Will I Be Judged? – As stated in the video I want you to play a solo in YOUR typical style. You will be rewarded for having good technique, but more important is how musical your solo is. Originality will also be a key factor.
Upon initially watching your video I will write down a basic score for you. When the competition ends I will re-visit your video several times to calculate a more appropriate and in-depth score. Laurie Monk (of Truth In Shredding) will be doing a similar thing and we will pick our favourites. After that we will pass the videos over to Johan Maertens (of Valvette) and the three of us will then negotiate an overall winner..
