Registration is OVER! No Acceptions!

Covers must be turned in by Sunday! The earlier, the better! Judging takes place on Monday, with winners announced at 9 EST!

Vote for your favorite!


Thread is now turned into discussion on the topic of your songs. Keep it ON TOPIC, I don't want this closed.

Muckypup has offered to get backing drum tracks. PM him if you're interested.



Ok, we all have a week to learn a song, record it, then have it uploaded to youtube (preferred), or sent as an mp3. I will upload it to here, and others will then vote for their favorite.

We will judge on cleanliness, accuracy, techniques (ex. good harmonics or vibrato) and overall impression.

We have three tiers, easy, intermediate, and advanced.

Post if you're interested in playing!

DeadWhisper (The Four Horseman/Santarium - Metallica)
devilskommander (Shout at the Devil - Motley Crue)

Intermediate:

You only need a camera to record...

I know people will not all like the music I pick, but I'll try my best to keep it "likeable" for everyone.


EDIT: @Myfirstpubes, probably the best idea, thanks!

I would partake if the songs weren't so sh*t.

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

Quote by Born A Fool
As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

being able to play a difficult song note for note does not make one a great guitarist. not to mention the criteria for what makes someone the best is very subjective. besides, playing guitar is not about being the best.
#19
Beginners: Master of Puppets - Metallica
Intermediate: Hangar 18 - Megadeth
Advanced: Blackened - Metallica

Fixed.
#20
I vote a Muse song for beginner (like Plug In Baby or Knights Of Cydonia) and an Alter Bridge song for Intermediate or Advanced (like Find The Real or Ties That Bind, or perhaps even Ahavo Rabo Taco Salad). Doubt I can play the solo's for AB though.

If there is a song I like for Beginner or Intermediate though that we can all agree on, I'm in.

Edit: And if we get to choose what we want to do ourselves then I'm definitely in.

Guys, remember to put in what tier you would like to be in, or I'm automatically throwing you in intermediate.

Also list the song you want to play.

Abso-bloody-lutely. Anyone can be a parrot. Not everyone can be the one that the parrots try to emulate.

Steve The Plank has to be one of the most talented guitarists I have seen in my life, based on what I've seen him do on stage. Very original, with great presence. Some people will undoubtedly be more technical than him, and I'll also call them very talented. Others won't be as technical but may hold my attention more, maybe. I'll also call them talented. But since we're talking about UG's best guitarists, I throw him into this against his knowledge.

I'll go for beginner, as I'm not that good. Nothing Else Matters alright as a beginner's song goes?
An Augmented 4th or a Diminished 5th?
