    Interesting... but it sounds to me, the one on your server is a clipped recording.
    So if the original is clipped then when you compress it, things really go south.

    Remove all frequencies below 100Hz (you tube will remove them anyway) then normalize levels to a safe -1dB.
    (hopefully you have the tools to do this, if not just watch your levels)

    :rolleyes:

    lol, there isnt any clipping going on...at least no unintentional clipping.

    I'm using a fuzz pedal in the clips. So I think you may be confusing recording clipping with the effect of a Fuzz pedal (which in theory is very similar to overloading clipping you hear in a recording). And you think my uncompressed one sounds clipped MORE because you can hear the fuzz pedal better.

    Oh well.

    Boy I sure could hear the difference. The second is much clearer. Cleaner I guess. Great playing by the way.
