Drum Forum Competition: January/February Sign Ups

Hey guys, we decided to try doing another forum contest again, and hopefully we can get a few more entrees than last time


Anyone have ideas for dates or competition material?

For competition material, you should grab a volunteer or two from the guitar forums, and have them record a song that has 4 genre variations. That way everyone can compete on a level playing field. Rock, Blues, Metal, Alternative maybe?

I was saying on the other thread I could throw together a few backing tracks, something not to difficult, or maybe some of various difficulties.

I like Taerran's idea, like I think we should get some backing tracks with genre variations and then maybe once everyone has submitted their entry, we could put it a thread in the pit with voting to see what the whole of UG thinks because then we might get more votes on it?

Just an idea though.

I second that, Nathy. Sounds like a spiffing idea

I would absolutely love to if I had my recording equipment at the moment. Once dates are confirmed I'll know whether or not I can participate

Once you get the ideas and stuff in, count me in 100%.

Always wanted to see a competition that WASN'T about just covering another musician's work *Cough*CAtPM*Cough*

EDIT: Would we have to cover every one of the genres or just cover one and pool them all together for votes? I don't imagine we'll be able to judge on individual categories, especially since there'll probably be no more then 10-15. Not pessimistic, just saying.

Also, would the backing track(s) be one entire song, or separate songs?

I'm just wondering. I have a lot of questions.

Personally, I think it should be a 4~6 minute backing track, with riffs covering all of those main genre's.

All in one track, to see how each individual handles each genre. That gives open creativity, and it can help judges on seeing how each drummer adapts, and how versatile they can be.

Sure, it's cool if you can do blast beats at 300bpm, but now how do you incorporate that into a bluesy feel? Just my thoughts.

I personally think thats a bit long, especially since we will all be watching the other to judge each version. I think 2 - 3 minutes covering 4 or 5 genres or less would work fine if we did do it like that.

Well, that really only leaves room for maybe 2 bars of riffs from each genre. I know 4-6 sounds long, but thats alotting less than 2 minutes per genre.

And the reason I push for an all-in-one song, is so you don't get say, a metal fanboy judging only metal songs, and passing up all the other entrys. This would be an original, all-encompassing competition.

I just don't think they would need to be that long, only 30-45 seconds worth of each would be enough to judge peoples ability to adept to the various genres. Plus with the lack of time it will make people have to think more about what they are going to play. Don't get me wrong though, I do see where you are coming from

If I can put in my 2 cents, I think that a 3-4 minute track would be perfect. about 45 seconds for each genre, with a smooth transition to see what each individual can come up with.

I'd rather have a single style you can just groove out and develop through a few minutes, instead of playing the BTBAM and switch every 30 seconds

Well, we'd also need to decide on what and how many genres to put in one song and the tempo(s).

And you're also better off doing something 3-4 minutes because 2-3 minutes is too short to really get going for some people.
Or we could just agree (take a vote,whatever) on one genre and do a 2-3 minute song with that. It can go either way, really.

I would like to enter this if it's actually happening, does it only have to be original or would we be able to do covers?

Uh....yeah...I already pointed this out in a somewhat similar thread, but I'd like to point it out again.

If this plan goes through, how will the entrees be sent? Through YouTube, or through recordings?

Also, I'm interested, but I don't own a drum set (noise complaints :C).

Well I think that perhaps we could create a youtube account where we can share the it and then upload videos onto it by a certain deadline or something?

just a suggestion
