Hey,

I'll make this short...
There will be:

Four rounds,
Five participants and
Three judges.


So, i would like people to fill in and say which role of the event you want to be. This will be a guitar cover elimination contest. Every 2 weeks a song is posted, everyone have to learn it. The judges will rate every covers and the worst will get eliminated.
The one who win, will choose a cover he want's to impose to every other opponent.

For this first edition, i would like it to be set from Rock to Metal style, no black, death, blues etc... This should take 10 weeks, if someone get fun doing it we'll restart it... If you don't post any cover then your out. Cover will be rated and the best one will choose the next song, nobody else will be kicken.

This event will start when every seat will be full, i'll ask everyone in their E-mail adress.

Participant:

-MangeuDePoutine (Me)
-Yaris
-XianXiuHong
-Young Mosaics
-gumbilicious

Judge:

-Enselmis
-Metallifan3091
-Taydr


If you got any question, just ask them.
Feedback are also appreciate.
Btw i speak french so sorry if there's mistake.

Thanks and good luck!

Thanks for taking part to this

That sounds like the same boat that I'm in. I live in a college dorm, and I don't even have an amp here right now . I'm more than happy to judge though. People, volunteer to compete!
Also, TS, are you picking the first song, or are we?

Well, the three judge can choose the first song, if you got any idea don't post them right now, so nobody can cheat.


Try to take something at least with a drum backtrack or a guitar pro tabs.
Maybe a song that isn't a classical cool be cool? (Not like Smoke On The Water, Highway to heaven etc...)
Try to search deep and find a nice unknow/less know song.

Just need a few opponent... It's doesn't require the best quality it's for fun... I use line in so everyone can have better gear then I.

I'll take a look often to this post and when it will be full i'll send a PM to all judges.

Sorry guys, we totally dropped the ball. Are you all capable of alternate tunings?


Yeah for sure, if not then just play the song in another tuning doesn't matter...

I didn't get any replied so didn't open another thread...

Still not too late to make this event begin

My apologies for my part in dropping the ball. I got a bit tied up with stuff for school.

Six more days to get the first one done, yes?

Alright everyone. The deadline has now passed. We look forward to hearing your covers(on your profiles is fine). We'll start the judging process tomorrow, I expect, assuming that TS sends us some kind of guidelines. If he doesn't, we'll just make up our own

I posted the mp3 in the GECC thread. I also have a lower quality version on my profile.
#32
i loaded mine on my profile, if it is not in time, so be it. i am surprised i even got it done.
