K i'm tired of every contest on this forum falling through lol. This is the NEW Nirvana cover song contest.

Rules:

Contestants MUST SING

a contestant MAY cover a song already covered by another contestant.

DEADLINE IS AUGUST 6TH

Due to a lack of people volunteering to be judges in the other contests, I will be the only COMPLETELY NONE-BIASED AND OPEN MINDED judge of this competition unless other people volunteer alongside me.

JUDGES: Dxpaintball8000, whatadrag, muckypup

Contestant's song links:

Good, because I was probably gonna do more screaming then mumbling on my cover.

Alright, I just got drums and vox left to record. Who's gonna take me, victory by default is pointless, why win if you can't gloat over the defeated?

I am assuming that you can get other people to record things for your track, like drums, bass, etc?

You can have as much backing track on it as you want (except for singing) and people can still enter. You can submit your entries until august 6th

It started on the first day that I announced that there was a contest. Between now and August 6th, contestants must turn in their songs. After August 6th is when the judging starts.

That's great, but I was asking because not everyone has a drum kit, a bass guitar, and enough mics to record with.

Ohh, haha, I misinterpreted. I assume you can get other people to fill those in, or just have guitar and vocal covers.

I changed the rules just now on the first post because I realize that some people just cant chose their fav nirvana song so now you are able to enter as many covers as you like

And as for all who are wondering if backing tracks are required, they arent.

Edit: Deadline is approaching fast

I know. Winning by default is only slightly better then losing.

I just got drums and arranging to do, so I might be on time. I Hate Myself And Want To Die isn't exactly a difficult song.

Hello friend,

I make cover of first chorus of Nirvana song "Come as You Are," my first day playing guitar along with my son and guitar teacher, me on vocals.

To find it look in my profile, its second mp3 in my Ultimate Guitar profile, it is self-titled as Nirvana Cover.

Thanks,

By my message, yes?
