This is a contest for your original acoustic songs. The rules are below:

The song must only be acoustic guitars and vocals. No drums, bass, or anything else. Just you and your guitar. Vocals are completely optional and won't effect your score if you don't have them. You can have multiple layers for lead and rythem and such.The song can be any length. The contest is open to anyone and any acoustic song. I'll judge and I'd like for 1 or 2 more judges.

The deadline is December 3rd.

Contestants:

Powerhouse - Joelisa

DanteR* - The Iris of Time

tasteoftomorrow - Staying Up All Night

redsox193 - The Count

.I.T. - Grow Up

ovdojoey - Smile For Me Baby

zeppelin450 - Celestial

unplugged110 - Adrennalin

dearjuliet - Playing By Ear

pinholes89 - The Hourglass

Man, Powerhouse! - I just have to say that you have a really beautiful voice, sounds quite like the vocals in Pearl Jam.. Wish I could sing like that!

Great song aswell!

I have a song to post, but I've never posted one before. How do I go about doing it? I tried purevolume.com, but it wouldn't let me upload it. What should I do?

make sure its in an mp3 format (it should look like: song.mp3 and usually have an iTunes, Windows Media, or Realplayer picture but that can change depending on your player)and under 8MB for Pure Volume. You could also try myspace or dmusic. you should be able to get a song on one of those three. if you cant or have other questions, let me know and ill see what i can do.

I made sure the file was small enough, and that it had an mp3 suffix, but it still won't work. What do I do now?

^ you have to actually convert it. you can't just type it from .whatever to .mp3

I didn't just type it, I converted it, re-ripped it, I tried like ten times, and when I try to upload the song, it said "NaN%." D'OH!


Oh, and does it make a difference if the suffix is .mp3 or .MP3?

It was recorded with cool edit pro 2.0, but the mixdown makes it go from .wav to . wma. After I converted it, it became .mp3, but was called MPEG Layer 3 audio (whatever the hell that means...). I eventually got it to covert to straight MP3 format audio, but it still wouldn't work. I even tried .m4a and .acc.

I'm totally stumped

Okay, finally!!!

Sorry for clogging up this thread with my computer illiteracy. Thanks to those who helped me out!

Here's my entry, it's called celestial. It's actually me and my friend Jake, we call ourselves the Chik'n Pik'n Musk Rats (pronounced like " Chicken Pickin") for lack of a better name.

Enjoy!

No drums, bass, or anything else.


I don't think djembe's in the background will fly....

Edit: I don't mind how we are judged, it's up to the rest of you.
