Calling All of the Pit's Musicians V17




GOAL: You have until NOVEMBER 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:

Guitar -- Easy/Intermediate/Advanced -- (note that 'easy' doesn't mean 'beginner')

Bass Guitar Intermediate/Advanced

Other

The yet to be completed COLLABORATION category! -- I'll believe it when I see it!




NOTES:

Other includes drums, vocals, keyboards, kazookeylele, bottles, or even the almighty triangle!

The COLLABORATION entries must consist of 2 or more people doing whatever instrument they feel like. All entrants for each song need to confirm their participation in order to be entered.



Don't forget the official UG Group for this monthly competition! Join for updates and news on current and future competitions. Suggestions are also welcome!




Please post the title of the song and band you are choosing and the category you are joining. Your registration will be invalidated if your registration is incomplete. (Bear in mind I probably won't know what BBFSTEDT or whatever stands for)

Post if you are interested. You can also join multiple categories but only 1 entry per instrument per tier.

RULES:
1. Please do not pick a song you already know -- though finishing off a song you've tried and failed on sections of before is fine.
2. Feel free to register as long as you will post an entry by the 20th.
3. The winners get points
4. ...
5. Refer to Rule No.1!!!
6. Profit!

Laid to Rest by Lamb of God. I'd say it's intermediate guitar.

I never saw who won Completely forgot about it.

I'm gonna do Bark At The Moon by Ozzy for intermediate. Gonna do my Welcome Home cover next month I think. Not sure what I'm going to do for easy, if anything at all. I need to have a think

EDIT: Me and this guy on YouTube might do a collab on Watch Over You by Alter Bridge but he doesnt have a UG account so I guess it will be in the normal section haha. It will probably be in easy.

Also, THE MUTHAF***ING TROOPER COLLAB WITH H4T3BR33D3R! I WILL GET THIS DONE!!!!!!!!

Hehe X3 I think I'll join again! Gotta keep it up!

Put me down for A Dark Light by Aram Bedrosian. Not really sure if you'd consider it advanced or intermediate though... It's pretty tough, uses the clawhammer a little bit and some tapping. Whatever you decide.

Here's the song:

Since I didn't get the time to record last time - Poison by Alice Cooper for bass. Either easy or intermediate, I think it's kind of borderline between the two. And since i first posted this for last year, I'll try to do a second one to go with it.

I'll probably do a video of me playing Wake Up by RATM or Three Days by Jane's Addiction on intermediate. Depends on which video works better

I might do the "One Note Song" by Tenacious D....if I can find the tab (to help me figure out the little bendy parts).

WCPhils, I think it is a bit of a stretch to put Prequel to the Sequel in intermediate, but someone may want to back me up on that.


I will enter:

Intermediate guitar: Time by Pink Floyd
Advanced guitar: Surfing With The Alien by Joe Satriani

Easy bass: Surfing With The Alien by Joe Satriani
Intermediate bass: Time by Pink Floyd

Yea, I was asking in the BTBAM thread and someone said it was intermediate. I don't mind either way. Just going by what they said. I'll just pick something else if it's not.

Edit: nevermind. I changed it. Would rather do that anyway.
