Lyrics will be due April 24th.

It's that time again, pull out the mics, pull out your pens, pull out your guitar! Here's the basic concept for those who weren't around for the last (somewhat disasterous) one. You write lyrics, then get paired with a partner who writes music to, and records your song. Then people vote on which they like best. Ok, good.

I just put 6 people down as an estimate, if you're interested tell me. Also, I'll gladly give up my lyrics spot, so if we get 6(or 8 or 12 or whatever the max ends up being) I'll step down. Just wanted to get the ball rolling.

Rules

- Don't be selfish, if you CAN record, sign up for that. You can probably do lyrics too, but you won't get your own.

- Songs can't be over 5 minutes, the reason? People get bored. It's a bitch to upload. Etc. Etc. Etc.

- These should be lyrics, and understand that music has to be set to them. WORK WITH YOUR PARTNER, give eachother ideas.

- Have fun.

- VOTE when the contest goes up, that's what the biggest downfall was last time. People didn't vote.

- If you do not submit your piece in time, you will LOSE 3 points. Half of the people who signed up last time didn't turn in their recording.

id be happy to do either (or both!). but i kinda suck at singing (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=342345), so that should be considered at all times.

if i do end up recording though, id need a decent chunk of time between getting lyrics and recording; at least a week i'd say.

I'll do lyrics or music, i have the recording stuff at my house, nothing fancy just a program and a mic :p: but enough... i'd prefer to do lyrics though, is there any criteria for the lyrics or is it free choice?

If I need to do both, I can. When is it in for, the recording that is, becuase last time it lasted too long. Make it shorter and get things done quicker so in order not to lose intrest.

sorry for making your song suck last time XarcadiaX i would totally be up for doing a recording thing and murdering someone elses song but as of now my computer has decided it doesn't want to work any more so a new hard drive is in the mail. but whatever I don't think i'll be able to do it in time anyways. So i'll be up for lyrics. 20th is awfully fast by the way. maybe give 14 days from when sign ups end. that would be more realistic i think.

I don't think so... but we'll see when sign-ups end, because you're right

and Auals, how does alternate for recording sound?

And Further, I really think you should try to do recording too. Especially since you pushed me to do this again.

haha I totally would but i really don't wanna be the guy that doesn't get it in on time because my computer's broken, but you can put me down for recording. and We'll talk privately abouthte computer. Just put me down and have auals be the back up?

i should point out that my computer has kind of gone horrible lately; my sound doesnt work, and all my recording programs make my computer shut down when i try to open them. it should be sorted by the time id be needed, but im just warning you in case.

I don't believe we established a 20th deadline for sure i think that was jsut your suggestion. I say that once he closes the sign up then gfive liek ten days for it or something.

Aka55
04-11-2006, 06:33 PM
Woah woah woah...

The ten days after the sign up closes will be for the lyrics, then there'll be another 14 for the recording... right?

O, sorry bout that, i was just really tired and bored and wanted something to post. I also think that we should close the entrance of participants before choosing a final deadline. It wasnt my suggestion anyway, Ret decided that by himself. Sry to be a dumbass :)

furtherfan21
04-11-2006, 10:36 PM
no we aren't going to have 24 days t odo it that'll be way too long i thin kwe need ten days after the closing of signups to get in the songs.

If it's 10 days after sign up is closed to hand in the songs, then the writers have like a day to make lyrics.

That's silly, people have written lyrics on this site before. That's why they have a Songwriting & Lyrics section. And I read something from Corey the other day. Omgz, I'm so confused.

Retribution, two things. One, yes that was my odd method of signing up. Two, if you insist on randomizing it, fine, but I think you should assign partners before the lyrics get turned in so we can talk to the person about what kind of song they'd prefer doing.

Also, lyrics will be due the 24th, I hope thats fine with everyone.

Ok, ok, chill out everyone.

No more posts in this thread for a while if you don't mind.

I'm trying to sort out all of this, and your constant posting and asking of who your partner is/what's going on, isn't helping. Be patient, and hopefully by tonight I'll have it done. Talk to me on AIM if you have questions: FamousJamous2911.

Ok, now I'm off to sort this out, and FurtherFan(damn, I need to remember people's names more) that actually sounds like a cool idea. Though it will most definately sound like crap. :) I think that's what you're going for, or you were being sarcastic[more likely] so hard to tell these days.

-James.

Edit: I think I have the pairings sorted out, so send me your lyrics ASAP, look at the front page to double-check that you know who you are, and I'll color the name once I get it.

So, can we extend this alittle?

Sorry guys.

EDIT: I pulled the jack out of my guitar, seeing as its n acoustic electric and its hanging out of the sound hole. I plugged the wire in and it worked fine. Alittle ghetto and sketchy, but it'll do.

K Problem.

My guitar fell apart.

The jack to plug it in broke off, if the recordings are due in the next week I won't be able to do them.

ok so when are these recordings due?

cause if it's today... I think I'd better get to work......

nah, dont worry, i have a feeling they wont be due for awhile... however, its always better to finish recording earlier rather than later so you have more time to play around with it, plus i wanna hear it :p:

I go through all that to get you lyrics and then...

No, that's not ok. Because... you looked for something to suit your own style, while all the other people couldn't do that.

So, no, you'll use the lyrics you were given. Otherwise, you have an unfair advantage. This is why you couldn't choose your partner.

I am extremely sorry if this messes everything up, but my mixer broke, making it impossible to transfer the music to computer.

The cd drive for which I have to burn my music onto then rip it to my computer gave out last week, explaining the initial lateness, however I figured that I could fix it this week. I couldn't, and this is why I cannot enter a song into this competition.

However, for those interested, I will post the song immediately when I get my mixer back from the shop.

I am extremely sorry.

First off: I don't exactly "choose" what type of lyrics you'll get, and no one wrote that style for this comp.
