October's Contest.


Registration is Closed

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.


http://groups.ultimate-guitar.com/caotpgp/ >_>

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

YOU HAVE UNTIL THE 3RD AT 11:59 PM UK TIME TO REGISTER

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.

The Tiers are Easy, Intermediate, and Advanced.

SONGS TO COMPARE DIFFICULTY AGAINST:

Easy:
Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)
Intermediate: The Number of the Beast (Iron Maiden)
Advanced: Sequoia Throne (Protest the Hero)

Post if you are interested.

2. There will be a 3 day registration period.
3. The winner receives a larger E-Penis (Courtesy of getting picked No.1)
4. Refer to Goal Post.

Happy Playing. Anyone may enter. Except Australians.

I haven't decided yet, probably something by Nirvana. I'm not that good so whatever it is, it will be easy tier, and it will be a song easy to find because I don't know hardly any obscure songs

...in the past you were able to just play along with the actually recording of the song in the background (I barely read any of the original post, so..yeah).
I'm probably not going to get a chance to participate in this one due to school and football...bummer.

I've never done this before, so I'll keep it easy.

Runnin' Wild - Airbourne (definitely "easy" tier)

Keep in mind, I'm trying to learn to sing so I might ruin it by doing crap vocals as well.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.
#16
Anyone know an intermediate song with an easy solo, preferably on 7 strings? I'm interested but I can't think of anything I want to learn.

EDIT: and does it have to be a video or can it just be audio?

It can be either vid or audio. Also i got the perfect one! its called R--K the Vote by Carcass

its transcribed for a 6 in B but the only high notes is used in the solo and to transcribe for a 7 just play it (on the G string) on fret lower. Deathly easy solo wise.
People in the pit take my post way too seriously.

I wouldn't call that a deathly easy solo but I'm up for the challenge.
I'll do R**k the vote.

I'll have a go, with Say Goodbye by I Killed The Prom Queen. I would say intermediate, but it could also just be at the top end of easy.
#22
I'm in again. I'll give Knights Of Cydonia - Muse a go. Probably intermediate, maybe easy if you don't do the synth part halfway through. I don't know whether I'll bother with the synth bridge, though. So stick me down in both tiers until I let you know whether I'm doing that or not yet.
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.

That song is easy, those synth triplet arpeggios are a bitch though

You know what? actually, Electric Gypsy by Andy Timmons might be a better choice.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Sign me up for Fortune Faded - RHCP (easy)

Another Way to Die - Jack White (easy)
That Golden Rule - Biffy Clyro (intermediate)

Little solace comes
to those who grieve
as thoughts keep drifting
as walls keep shifting
and this great blue world of ours
seems a House of Leaves
