i think that the echo effect worked really well for the first half of the piece but it does kinda make the second half a little sloppy and noisy sounding when i start strumming chords and playing walking basslines. its hard to tell for me cause when i listen to it i only hear what i know i played.
i would have liked it better without all the smeary reverby and delay.
it kind of tookawaya from the preciseness of the piece. impressive playing.
if your interested in hearing the original, here is the same piece without any effects

and exo, there is no reason you can't multitrack instruments and do overdubs and stuff. I think doing this will show and will make for a better piece.

The point of this challenge is to strip away the concern for tonal varience to place a higher value on that of composition and arrangement.
If you think you can make an effective piece of music using only one instrument then do that. If you think using more will yield a better piece then go for it. These are creative challenges not technical challenges, difficulty really shouldn't be a factor.
...unless you guys want difficult challenges... i have a bunch of ideas that i threw out because they were just too difficult and how far too stringent requirements.

In my fantasy football league everyone put in 20$ at the start of the year and it's caused everyone to pay a shitload of attention to football and really get into it. I've spent like 80 hours reading about and watching football since I joined the league and I think it could have the same effect on these song challenges.
We could vote on an array of like 5 challenges that we all think are most fair and then schedule them accordingly. If we all put in 10$ we could give 1$ from each person to the winner of each week's challenge and then give 80% to the overall winner at the end and 20% to the runner up.
You guys probably don't want to do this at all but I would definitely be up for this.
