GOAL: You have until July 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

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 so dn't abbrv. wrds & terms)

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.

Try connecting the amp's line-out/headphone jack to your computer's line-in or microphone port (turn amp down first). Might not sound as good?




edit - was assuming you have no usb/other interface and would rather record directly than via microphone (no idea)

I'm not familiar with the song so I'll wait for somebody else to pipe in. I'll put it in advanced for now


Are you playing all the instruments or do you actually have a full band? If you're playing everything, I can enter you in a category for bass and drums. If not, you can really only enter the guitar parts.

I'd say the guitar part would fall into easy, possibly intermediate with the exception of the solo. Bass would definitely be intermediate, and drums would be advanced assuming they're played accurately.
#26
Actually, put me down for Doctor Doctor by UFO as well for easy. I'm gonna take day off studying tomorrow and might get at least one of these done.

Pick a song and then put it in the category you think it belongs in. Record the audio or video f it being played. I think each category will get a voting thread.

(expanding on what Blade Slinger said just for extra clarification if anyone needs it in future)

The aim is to pick a song you haven't previously learned and you have 20 days to learn and record it. It can be just audio if you wish and upload it to your profile or something like Soundcloud or you do a video and upload to YouTube. Its up to you. As long as we can hear your playing! Once you have done it, link the audio or video.

For categories, they have been split up into Easy songs, Intermediate songs and Advanced songs on both guitar and bass. This saves things like All The Small Things going against Through The Fire and Flames.

If you play drums or sing or piano etc (anything that isn't a guitar), there is an "Other" section for it. If only one person enters a final submission before the deadline, it will be carried over to the next month's competition. This goes for any category.

Once the deadline has been reached, threads dedicated for voting will be uploaded and anyone can vote. There isn't a strict rule against voting for yourself (although Horsedick likes to do this )

I doubt you'd have any competition in the collaboration category tbh. Nobody enters. I could still put it in if you like.

LOL! I had a feeling someone had done it before on here but I wasn't sure if it was just my imagination That video doesnt work by the way

You mentioned that no-one enters a collab entry normally. Why don't we record this as a collab? I mean it was so long since you did that that you may have to re-learn it

That wouldn't be fair because I still remember how to play that one


We could do something else though.

I guess I'll do Walk to Hell by Feared on guitar. I've already programmed the drums in EZDrummer, and the bass will just be pitch shifted guitar (because I don't own a bass ) When I'm finished, do I just post a link to the video in here?

I tried that pitch shifting thing before and it worked surprisingly well. As long as the bass doesn't have any prominent parts and is just background, it doesnt sound much different.

Yeah just post a link here
