Is it worth submitting something that's just me and an acoustic guitar? Mind you my vocals aren't amazing so you might reject it

Yeah, that works. I mean, that's what most submissions will be (Unless everyone goes all out, which would be a pleasant surprise.)

It's just going to be vocals and guitars on mine. I don't like to go all out on my songs because I want to be able to perform them live.

EDIT: Actually, I used my guitar for percussion in a cover, just don't break anything.

Well it only took five minutes and I was making a lot of progress.

It's very flamenco-ish now, which means I have to sing in Spanish. I'm not fluent though so I may just rip off Sigur Ros and sing in gibberish to avoid embarrassing mistakes in the lyrics.

I'm just doing my voice with a guitar and a guitar overdub. Mostly because my demo was recorded with my webcam mic and sounds like ass.

Gonna have to wait until I'm home for winter break and actually have access to (relatively) proper recording gear.

I guess that gives me some time to write though.

What exactly is in there, and what's on the piano track?

Just piano, my hand claps, and some strings.

Lots of reverb.

I redid the bridge and removed the shitty reverb buildup and strings.

So I got my song recorded, just a short one barely past the three minute mark, and it's only three tracks, vocal, guitar, banjo.

I might add some more later, maybe some banging pots or a hammer falling on an anvil, or maybe some lead. I assume the lead can be played with electric, or a distorted acoustic?

Anyway so I recorded it my Boss 16 track, which is ancient, and I was wondering what the next step would be. I mean I can burn a Cd, but what do most of you use to convert it to mp3, and where do I upload it after that?

If it burns to CD you can convert it to MP3 format or you can just get it to me in WAV and I can do it.

This is the intro section of the song I'm working on for this. It's pretty awful at the moment and not even on beat during a couple of small portions. It'll be way better when it's final though.
