Calling All The Pit's Musicians V18
 


Seasons greetings and happy holidays everybody!

GOAL: You have until DECEMBER 20TH to learn a song, any song of your choice, with the instrument of your choice, and record it and upload it (to Youtube, your UG profile or any related site). Audio alone is fine. Video is fine. This should prove some fun and a good time waster and all along you're becoming a better musician. After all entries have been made we will judge on cleanliness, accuracy, techniques (ex. good harmonics or vibrato), styles, speed, etc. and overall impression.

NOTICE: Do not upload to a site where you have to register to view/hear the song (ie, facebook, etc)



*** REGISTRATION IS OPEN RIGHT UP UNTIL THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE ***

Thanks to StewieSwan for this:
To export a GP5 drum track as an Mp3 if I just download the song from UG...

Make sure only the drum track is on (mute the others or press the S button on the drum track in GP) and then go File - Export - MIDI. Once the drum MIDI is exported, find it wherever you put it and open it with itunes. Then right click the track and select "create mp3".
If it doesn't say mp3, if it's another kind of format then go Edit - Preferences - General - Import Settings - Import Using Mp3 Encoder and then right click the song and convert to mp3. This is all assuming you have the latest itunes.




These are the categories:

hmm, since my electric is broken I'll have to be creative.

I'll do something for easy guitar with my acoustic I think. It's a secret though :)

And I'm going to do a Protest the Hero, BTBAM, or Dillinger Escape Plan song on piano for lols. I'll let you know which one when I choose.

Horsedick.MPEG 12-01-2012 01:29 AM

I call Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden for Intermediate.

Anyone game for doing a collaboration of Scar Tissue by RHCP on bass?

H4T3BR33D3R 12-01-2012 02:55 AM

Sweet song choices man.



I'll update the OP in the morning.

barden1069 12-01-2012 05:25 PM

Would "A Favor House Atlantic" by Coheed and Cambria be Easy or Intermediate? I want to give that one a shot.

I'm listening to it now, I would say intermediate maybe? We'll wait for more people to chime in.

Fatlumpthe1st 12-01-2012 05:40 PM

Put me down for The Judas Kiss on guitar by Metallica please :D I'm not going to do the solo so I'm not sure if that'd go in the intermediate category or the easy category :shrug:

I'll just put it in intermediate and if somebody takes issue, we'll move it.

Horsedick.MPEG 12-01-2012 06:10 PM

I'm also doing Black Hole Sun on bass.

Still on the lookout for a bass player for the RHCP song.

H4T3BR33D3R 12-01-2012 06:13 PM

EDIT: nvm derped. Added

TokaiEX 12-01-2012 07:06 PM

Horsedick, I'll do the bass for the rhcp song.

Random3 12-01-2012 07:21 PM

Can you please carry over my Surfing With The Alien over from last month, as there were no other advanced guitar entries.

Probably won't enter anything else, will let you know if that changes.

Oh, and just got back from seeing Steve Vai. Incredible.

H4T3BR33D3R 12-01-2012 07:26 PM

Will do.
