This submission from Dean C. gets quite creative with the use of his scale knowledge.
Looks like there's even a Bsus4b5 chord used in one part of his performance; a chord rarely used in music. Very cool!
Another split screen performance, this submission from Dustin J. took a very different approach musically.
The bass line in the backing track ends up creating a lot of dissonance against the guitars that were written and performed. Yet, everything fits quite well.
Very unexpected and VERY cool!
Alex really took advantage of using split screen performances for this entry.
There are lots of changes in this submission loaded with creativity!
