Hello friends
I thank all those who encouraged me for Carlos Amigos and congratulate all those who brilliantly took up the Santana challenge. This stimulated me to offer you a new challenge for a song in the style of Gary Moore in a slow tempo ballad.
It is called Eurotopia.

Tres bien!!! C'est le pied!!

So, I will enter this challenge though no one has tried to outfox me on my Al Di Meola challenge. C'est dommage.

BUT, I have a hardcore heavy metal challenge I plan to start as well. Speed picking in death metal. Maybe Herb Hartley will challenge me on this one, if he is man enough. We will see.

I will do this too though.

Viva la revolution! I fear nothing!!

Nice playing on this, and I like the melody. Guitar is a little buried in the mix in spots in my opinion.

Hello Laurent
Welcome to the forum
Your song sounds quite good
Maybe you should pay more attention to your guitar sound
It is a little bit lost in the song
And guitarists like Santana and Gary Moore are among the best guitarists ever on this planet.
I think it is questionable to start challenges in their name.
But this is my opinion
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Another masterful delivery.

Great use of the lead guitar, although perhaps the song is a little too long? But maybe it was intended this way?

Thank you for the compliments a theme might have been enough, I agree and for solos how to bring a dynamic progression that does not repeat itself, it is certainly the secret of great musicians.

Very tasty, although the guitar could be a little more forward (louder) in the mix. I'm a huge Gary Moore fan - "Still Got The Blues" being my favorite from him. You have a very similar sound. Very nice execution on the guitar. I enjoyed it a lot.

Thanks again for the encouragement. I did not take up the Al Di Méola challenge because it seemed superhuman to me. In composition, precision and speed of play it was beyond me but I love it in dark eye tango.

Thanks very much
I may be going to redo the mix to increase the guitar, but I'm still a novice in the field.
