I dunno guys, whenever theres something hard or "not so fun" working in a group fixes that problem. I used to learn so many covers then i stopped abruptly. Its so hard to get inspired nowadays. im really finding it hard to get inspired to learn covers even though almost every single cover i've learnt has helped me in some way. Don't get me wrong, i still pickup the guitar and play about 2-5 hours a day but just playing my own stuff or just riffing and what not.

Stuck in the same level of guitar playing??

I think its time i get back to covers, i think its time i try to get good again but i don't want to do it alone, it gets boring and like i said nothing motivates me. What if we were to make a group. We pick around 15-20 cover songs and we set deadlines for each song, say 2-3 days for a song. And by that deadline we have to upload them to youtube( doesn't have to be good quality). We can then point out what we're doing wrong to each other and also have an inspiration to keep pushing forward.

This might not work, this might fail and noone might reply. But what if we did make it work. What if we had 30 people doing it. Think of the goddamn progress we'll make.

Whos in? Suggestions or something? please work damn you

good idea, but i think instead of just picking a certain amount of songs, pick a few songs for beginners, a few for the average guitarist and a few for the best guitarists

It sounds like a good idea

Yeah i mean definately first few songs will be easy then it gets harder and harder and harder.

Lets just get a group going before we can discuss songs.

I'll see what i can do tho depending on the song

Lets not get caught on the small details like how many days. But we want to be efficient and we want to get better.

Depends on the level of the songs.

I can't shred like crazy or anything, but I don't wanna waste my time playing stupid easy power chord songs, y'know?

Otherwise it sounds like fun. I may be a little delayed though for the next two weeks as school's finishing up and exams are coming up, but I'm still game.

I'd seriously love to do this man but I can't afford the time for it. Damn summer classes

2-3 days is not enough , unless you go all out.


I'm pretty sure you could learn a song withing 3 days. If by ear idk but with decent tabs it'll help. 3 days for a song you know will be a lot easier than a totally new song.

Back on topic. I'd be willing to do this if I actually have a camera to record with :S Then again it has to be a song/ genre I want to play

Hey guys, finally found the thread I was asked to come to

I'll be willing to do it, so I'm in. Plus it'll help with my 52-song goal, I'm starting to run out of good songs in my iTunes to learn and I haven't heard anything interesting on the radio recently

EDIT: After reading previous posts, I've discovered people are worried about their skill level. Like someone has mentioned before, for each deadline, we have 3 songs available to choose; 1 for the beginner skill level, 1 for the intermediate skill level, and 1 for the advanced skill level.

Difficulty is relative though, so somebody is going to grade the songs by difficulty or do we go by general opinion and suggestions? I really think this would be great! Even if we only got 5-6 to get on it, it would be tons of fun and rewarding as well!

This sounds kinda fun I'm in. I've been needing something to do with guitar when I'm not writing stuff. Sounds like a pretty big responsibility though (for the OP). I used to do threads like this on video game forums, they were a pain to manage, hehe. God speed!

Yeah i like challenges so i guess we're good. I dunno, any ideas how when to start this.

Why not jam with people? Im repulsive and everyone hates me in real life.

Well I assume that one would be able to tell by listening to a song how difficult it is. We'll just need to find a definitive difference between beginner intermediate and advanced.

why not just find some people you actually jam with in person?

Because it's not as easy as it sounds for some people. Also, this is a task that can be done at night, which is usually when I do my playing.
