I saw the bass wars V thread that "the humanity" posted and it seemed like a very good idea. So, I thought it would be cool to start a guitar wars.

So, if you want to have some proof of how awesome someone is, if you want to see if this guy's solo piece is better than that guy's, come witness.

the rules
-1-3 minutes long.
-must be in by the deadline (Wednesday, May 13th)
-guitar oriented, no keyboard, bass, trumpet solos

Ends up that Bornfidelity had some unfortunate setbacks...but Sora accepted a rematch so there will still be a final round!
AND THE WINNER IS:
bornfidelity!
You are now god of the guitar forum (i guess...)

Good job to everyone who participated, especially Sora 01 for also making it to the final round!

I hope this works out for you lot better than it does us... prepare for mass drop-outs and excuses

EDIT: You may be able to rope a guitar forum mod in to this to give a short, unofficial ban for dropouts. Helps to stop the comp getting boring due to people get through on default.

I'm in.
But, some details I need, does it need to be with a backing track or is that optional/not allowed?
I'd also need the deadline, probably get one done tomorrow though, school holiday and no life = guitar playings.

Also does it have to be a "song" or just a showoff of technique? Or can it be either?
Also, I'd like to know, as these are battles or whatnot, will I have to do more than one recording?

Another, is there any specific genre, stye or whatever it needs to be in?

EDIT: Squierlolz, that may be helpful for me if you're willin'

Punk Ninja-

Back tracks of other instruments are allowed.

It should be instumental. Look at the bass wars profile for examples:
http://artists.ultimate-guitar.com/basswarsv/music/

There will be multiple rounds. If you make it to the next round, you will need to post another recording.

It does not have to be any specific genre

Before I post a deadline, I need more people to join, at least 9 (3 to a group)

So basically, we can just record a song with as many instruments as we'd like?

As long as the guitar is the most prominent in the mix, yes.

What's the criteria? If it's a technique/melody comp count me in. If it's a "how fast can you play" comp I'm not interested.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

I assume maybe something either composed on a midi style program, or something recorded on a MIDI guitar?

Also, I'l have mine recorded tomorrow hopefully, it'll be on video because my new laptop seems to have some messed up soundcard that makes all recordings sound soaked in flanger.
#35
If midi is legit, count me in.
I cant record at the moment, perhaps next week or so

Midi is ditigal music, like the stuff you write in guitar pro/power tab

And Im pretty sure this wont be allowed It's about playing-skills, not composition skills, yes?

I know the stuff doesn't need to be ready for now, but I'm away from school for the week, so I'm taking advantage of my lack of social life by doing some compositional work and recording for this contest.

I'm awaiting to hear the entries in this contest, I love to hear UGs music!
I also can't wait to hear what I'm up against, assuambly a realisation that I've wasted my 3 years of guitar playing!
