Well wasn’t that fun for a quick out of the blue thing?  We had quite a number of submissions, so that’s cool.  We’d like to kick this off by giving our personal thanks for everyone’s submission.

It was a lot of fun sifting through and listening to the submissions… well… up until the part where I was up past my bed time while we chose a winner, and choosing a winner wasn’t entirely easy.  There were a number of good submissions, but of course we have to narrow it down to two submissions, so here’s who we picked.

1st Place:

Paolo Galido – Under the Sea Part 1 and Part 2

Part 1

Part 2


2nd Place

John Mynatt – Something He Busted Out

So yeah.  There you go.  Congrats to the both of you.  Thanks again for participating, everyone.  We do look forward to doing something like this again in the future, so stick around.

In the meantime here are some other submissions from others.

    With Google Guitar as your medium at that. I actually killed a lot of time toying around with it. You can come up with some snazzy melodies very easily. It’s gonna be a bummer when Google inevitably removes it.

      Sure thing, dude. The fact that some of your Google Guitar visions required two parts was something else. That’s one of those above and beyond the call of duty parts. Not to mention they were very accurate.

      Congrats. Enjoy the 25 bones.
