We are going to be trying a new rule for titling your threads. This was a suggestion in the site feedback forum, basicly it involves you giving some info on your cover. If the cover is only you or your band playing, you need to let us know that. Some ways to do this would be indicating "Band Cover" or "No Backing Track" or just "No BT" in your title. Putting it in your first post is acceptable, but the title is preferable. The other option is if you are using a backing track or playalong of some sort, and this includes playing along with the original recording. You cannot post playing with the original recording on your UG profile because you cannot post copyrighted material on your profile. Some ways to indicate this would be "Playing with song," "Playalong," "With Backing Track," or "With BT." Once again, putting in the title is prefered.

The idea is to give potential listeners an idea of what they are getting in to. This will help you get more listens from people who are interested in your song.

So try it today!

Can I post a poll for which song I will cover next?

i would prefer you did not, but if you edit the post to include the cover within a reasonable ammount of time, i probably wont get too upset.

Hummh question...how do i change the name of my post?
you cant.

that said, its not like we actively look to close people's threads for bad titles. its more of a highly recommended suggestion than a strict rule.

In my mind I thought that 24 hours (with 12 hours being the limit on voting) to complete. I was even thinking of preshooting three videos/songs prior to the vote but then the vote would be pointless.

? If you're posting an original recording, it goes into the original recordings section. If you're posting a cover, it goes into the covers subforum. If you're posting copyrighted music you have no rights to (READ: Music you didn't perform), then you'll probably be banned.

I have a youtube chanel where I am now doing covers. am I allowed to post a link to it here? I play along with the actual recordings so would that be considered copyright enfringement?

How kindly does UG take to electronic remixes? Am I allowed to post them here?

I will definitely try this out once I am able to make new threads!

Hello, I'm just a beginner trying to get better at singing so here's a link to the videos I've posted so far. If you had some free time and could give me constructive criticism, helpful hate, song suggestions and whatever else you want to throw my way that would be really cool of you!

what's the rule on successive posts? should we keep them in the same post or make another post with the new song?
