July's Contest.

Goal : You have exactly 1 week to learn a song, any song of your choice, and record it and upload it.(To Youtube or any related site). This should prove some fun and a good time waster and all along your becoming a better guitar player. After all entries have been made we will judge on cleanliness, accuracy, techniques (ex. good harmonics or vibrato) and overall impression.

NOTICE: Do NOT upload your cover to a site where people have to register to view it. Ie: Facebook, etc.



REGISTRATION IS OVER, YOU NOW HAVE UNTIL THE 10th at 11:59 Central Standard Time to submit.

Clock showing what time it is in CST: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=70


Thanks to StewieSwan for this:
To export a GP5 drum track as an Mp3 if I just download the song from UG...

Make sure only the drum track is on (mute the others or press the S button on the drum track in GP) and then go File - Export - MIDI. Once the drum MIDI is exported, find it wherever you put it and open it with itunes. Then right click the track and select "create mp3".
If it doesn't say mp3, if it's another kind of format then go Edit - Preferences - General - Import Settings - Import Using Mp3 Encoder and then right click the song and convert to mp3. This is all assuming you have the latest itunes.

Please post the song you are choosing and the tier you think it fits in.

We Have 3 Tiers: Easy, Intermediate, and Advanced. All will be judged.

Post if you're interested in playing!

There are some Rules :
1. Please do not pick a song you already know.
2. There will be about a 1-2 day registration period.
3. The winner receives a larger E-Penis (Courtesy of getting picked No.1)

I'm definitely in. I missed out on last month because of exams.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

Since the last one was a total disaster, I'm going to throw absolutely all caution to the wind and go with Stream of Consciousness by Dream Theater. Advanced.
#7
Soooo, what happens if we sign up but don't submit it in time? Penalty of death or smth?

I'd sign up but I won't be able to record it until next week so is it a big deal if I don't get it in in time, or do I just get left out?

Well you have a week from the third to submit, right now we're just doing registration.

If you don't submit in time, then yes, you get left out of the voting.

@Chuckles: Yes you are.

I'll try to think of a song to learn. I want to be in the intermediate zone, so I'll put a bit of thought into it. This isn't an entry btw, just a notification of my interest.

METEDIT: ...And Justice For All - Metallica.

Put me down for Obfuscation by Between the Buried and Me. I doubt a week will be enough time to learn it, but I'm going to try.
Check out my band Disturbed

Oh hell yes I am up for this

I'll try to beat Chuckles but it's unlikely

I think I'll do Enemy Within by Arch Enemy, with all the solos. I assume it's advanced

EDIT: Actually I might do Aesthetics of Hate by Machine Head, I'll confirm once I've decided.

If I'd seen this sooner then I'd have entered. sleeping and having to go to work early tomorrow then travelling half of saturday screws my plans.

Edit: Just seen that is the date to register by.

PLAY UP POMPEY

POMPEY PLAY UP!

I didn't even learn the last two songs for the last competitions but now that I'm on vacation I'll try my best to finish this, just because I haven't touched a guitar in like 2 weeks.

Sign me up for White Walls by Between the Buried and Me.. I've been wanting to learn this song for a long, long time.

Is 4-6 hours a day not enough?
I'll look at the tab in a bit, if it's too hard I'll change it today.

The Soulforged - Blind Guardian
Intermediate
Yksinään hän vaeltaa mis' varjot lankeaa
Halki usvan ja roudan vain teräs seuranaan
Sydämensä kylmä on kuin maa routainen
Mutta silmissään viha polttava kuin kiuas tulinen

If you're doing a video remember Youtube won't let you upload longer than 10 minutes.



He could take the video, then split it in windows movie maker, and upload both parts?
#38
RHCP - Under The Bridge

Dunno if it's intermediate or beginner, and I don't really care so you decide.
#40
Quote by Guitarlord44
Just a question. Do i have to learn the solos? I'm a rhythm player so solos are kinda tough for me


Yes. Atleast last time I there were a couple of people covering songs but w/o solo (including me)
