This is the second issue of UG Amplified, the community webzine. It’s written and produced entirely by UGers recruited from the forums, and can showcase the extensive creative and intellectual prowess of ordinary users.

The first issue was a great success, and a team of more than 20 people have been hard at work to bring you this second one.

Anyone can write for Amplified - just sign up here.

Because no bassists submitted anything.

We don't have staff writers - any UGer who wants to submit a piece for an issue does so.

Hm. I'll refer this to the bass forum and see if they want to contribute.

I'll contribute to bass thingynesswhatever. Though I've no idea what/how to contribute. Reading through the issue posted maybe an advice article on "how to start playing bass guitar", choosing, buying, playing, approach, etc. Is that the sort of thing?

I'm ashamed to say I had tor read the OP three times before I found the link to it....

Needs more pics...


But it was pretty good.


Can you add something in there about user's and good community music, and maybe have features from these Pit contest winners and runner-ups? It'd be nice to give a bit more reward to those people who might not necessarily add a ton to the forums in the way of posting, but grow the community with creativity and talent.

I sent the boss the results of the latest UG Top 100. Other than that, we just need somebody to feed details of those Pit contests to our group.

Okay, there are two that I know are running ATM (I haven't followed the Pit's constant stream of guitar contests)

There's one open-instrument (OI) contest, and one vocal contest. The OI is categorized by difficulty, while the singing is categorized by vocal technique. I don't know any of the info concerning end-date with the OI, but the Vocal's subbing ends at the end of this month, and judging begins.

I'd imagine that the OI ends before the end of the month, though, lemmie dig up that info.

Gonna go C/P this to my notepad and grab some URLs for the contest threads.

Fantastic. It'll be a while before we're ready for the next issue, but this might be handy stuff.

If anyone wants to become a contest liaison, then that would be great. Otherwise, I'll scour the various subforums.

I'm currently rebooting the sign-up thread.

I got 99 problems and they all bitches. What am I doing wrong? Also, if there was a TLC match in hell with Macho Man, Chris Benoit, and Eddie Guerrero, Benoit would win for sure, right? I mean, Macho Man would have totally won back in the day, but let's face it, he was getting old and fat. Benoit was still pumping roids when he died.

There's also the Mixing contest. Should be on the front page of the Pit.

Great work, everyone. This issue looked so much better, visually, but was just as great, content-wise, as the last. Now that I know I don't have cancer (don't ask), I can get back to writing.
#36
Awesome, glad it wasn't delayed too long.
Quote by Vornik
Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.
