    De uitslag van de RIFFCONTEST is bekend! 'Jury voorzitter' Paul Gilbert maakt aan alle spanning een eind en maakt de drie winnaars bekend!

    I have been given the job of listening to some guitarsolos, choosing my 3 favorites, and writing myopinions of them. So here we go.

    My favorites are:

    1. "Fuz_Meets_the_herd" by Bosch
    2. "Chase" by Joris Bos
    3. "Funky fingers" by Boudewijn

    Bosch gets right to the point and lays down someserious rock-fusion licks in the first few seconds.His tone reminds me of John Scofield, but with somemetal influences in the distorted guitar sound. Ireally like his mix of picking and legato sounds, andhis choice of notes is really interesting. The secondhalf of the solo is more Steve Vai-ish with some fastruns and Vai-ish phrases. And then, having said whathe needed to say, Bosch quits while he's ahead andlet's the bass solo take it to the finish.

    MP3: Fuz_meets_the_Herd - Bosch

    Joris Bos has the best and LOUDEST guitar sound of anyof these solos. I also love his vibrato. And that'sIMPORTANT. If I needed another guitarist for a touringband, I'll probably pick Joris because of the clarityand power of his playing and tone and his awesomevibrato. He's not as flashy as the other guys, but I love thesound of his fingers.

    MP3: Chase - JorisBos

    Boudewijn starts off with some safe but good funkrhythm, then adds a melody with a kind of thinauto-wah sound. I didn't have great expectations afterthis, but wait... then a killer metal solo comes outof nowhere! Great tone, phrasing, vibrato, super cleanlicks. Wow! Uh-oh, then it's back to the duck-callsound. then a fantastic fusion section and somemasterful licks worked out to go with the bass guitarsolo. This guy plays really well, he just needs tostick the good stuff at the beginning of the song toget the listener's attention.

    So who do I choose to win the Pod?

    I'm going to go with Bosch. He put his good stuff atthe beginning and got my attention with just onelisten. Joris and Boudewijn are fantastic guitaristsas well, and the more I listened to them, the moredepth and musicality I found. But Bosch hooked meimmediately, so I have to go with my first impression.

    I hope all you guys keep playing guitar and have lotsof fun and success!

    Thank you,
