The Final Four currently has Symphony of Destruction by Megadeth, Smooth by Santana, and Alive by Pearl Jam. Only one spot remains in the Final Four. The Miscellaneous Bracket will determine the final spot. This bracket consist of Blues, Soul, Funk (if any Funk would have made it), Christmas, and Instrumental songs. The first match is between the #1 seeded The Thrill Is Gone by B.B. King and the #8 seeded Cliffs of Dover by Eric Johnson.

Shame these are matched up in the first round.

Trill is Gone

would love to be able to play Cliffs of Dover. Thrill Is Gone is one of my favourites to play in RS.

I absolutely love thrill is gone, and I play it a lot more than Cliffs because it's a great song to relax to, BUT... I have spent a TON of time with Cliffs in Riff Repeater, and just love that song so much. If I were given a choice in DLC release between these two I would absolutely go for Cliffs of Dover because it is one of the top 5 songs I wanted to see in a guitar focused game bar none - even if I can't play the intro/outro, and various solo sections in between :)

Cliffs of Dover.

Cliffs is a very difficult song. And it might be intimidating to some people. I love both songs but Cliffs is a song that I've been wanting to learn for a long time so it edged out the vote for me. But Thrill is an awesome song as well.

Oh man I love both of these for different reasons... Paris is the one I have more fun from a guitar only perspective, but I love singing and just relaxing to the chord version of dock of the bay. Usually I go for the guitar technique side of things, but for this one I'm stickin' with my man Otis. Dock of the Bay!

Well, the match ended in a tie, so as a result, I did a coin toss to declare the winner. The coin landed on heads and as a result, Paris (Oh La La La) is going to the Miscellaneous Bracket Semifinals to take on The Thrill is Gone on Tuesday March 26th. The next match will be between the #2 seeded Bright Lights by Gary Clark Jr. and the #7 seeded Carol of the Bells by Seth Chapla.

I thought maybe if I didn't vote a few rounds I could save up some votes to petition 'Carry on Wayward Son' back in as a dark horse candidate. I just realized that one didn't make the cut to even be in any bracket :(

On this one... I don't know, I'm gonna say Thrill is Gone because I tend to play it more when I'm relaxing and the Oooh Laa Laa part of paris kinda grates on me after a while. I do like the paris song though it's still fun to play.

Thrill is Gone.

Carry On My Wayward Son would have been part of the Classic Rock Bracket, but it didn't make the top eight especially when the song was a very recent DLC back then (two weeks before the nomination deadline). Maybe people are not paying attention to some of these matches because it's a bracket full of blues, soul, indie, Christmas, and instrumental songs. The championship game on Thursday should attract people since it's a battle for the last spot in the Final Four.

Yeah, I understand it was part of the classic rock bracket, I went back and noticed it only got 1 measly vote... It seemed odd for something I thought might have taken the whole thing. It's seriously one of the funnest DLC to play in this game, so I'd pick it above almost any of the other songs we've chosen between yet. Given how much people loved playing the song in the challenge it was in I am surprised the community didn't vote it in..
