Answers GQ2: The Revenge - Round 8

The end is nigh, and only one combatant is left standing. One shall stand and one shall fall. There can be only one. And the clichés they keepeth on coming, but before the winner is announced, here be the songs from the final round:
  • Song 136: Mötley Crüe - Kickstart My Heart. This song, which clocks in at a healthy 180 bpm, is from Dr. Feelgood, which in my opinion is the only Crüe album worth a damn. This tune is also awesome to play live, because it hauls ass notewise even during the verse.
  • Song 137: Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - I Love Rock'n'Roll. Yeah yeah - not exactly the most challenging song to recognize. This tune was one of the first songs we rehearsed for the purposes of gigging, and the descending cadenza in harmonic minor is a taste of the Yngwiefications I used to add to songs so as not to get bored to death from three-chord progressions and blues bends.
  • Song 138: ABBA - Lay All Your Love On Me. This is actually a kick-ass song which flew below my my radar until Tobi Sammett and his Avantasia included it as a cover on their "Lost In Space Pt. 1" EP.
  • Song 139: C&C Music Factory - Everybody Dance Now (Gonna Make You Sweat) Annoying tune, huh? I had to search for quite some time to make my poor Ibanez S produce such a tin can guitar sound.
  • Song 140: Judas Priest - Breaking The Law. I was surprised by the fact that only two of you found this song - it's THE heavy metal anthem after all.
And now for the Round 8 Scores:
  1. Cathy (10 points)
  2. Sondre (8 points)
  3. Anders (6 points)
  4. Pigeon (2 points)
...and without further ado, here's the Total Score:
  1. Cathy (50 points)
  2. Sondre (49 points)
  3. Anders (46 points)
  4. Pigeon (35 points)
Long Live Cathy, Queen of the m-factor Guitarquiz
and the future Recipient of an alcoholic beverage! For the longest time, it looked like Sondre had the sequel in the bag, before Cathy pimpstrolled past the competition. There can be only one!

Hey, way to go Cathy!

And again, my little comeback did had steam to go all the way... Oh well. But it was a pretty race this time around.

It was indeed. Very close at the end there.

If there's interest, I'll record some more tunes when the library/studio is done. Soon, soon I will be able to play amplified once more....
