So every month in the past years we've had contests such as calling all of the pit's guitarist, and last month, the other musicians.

So why not include all of them in one thread? Introducing . . .

CALLING ALL OF THE PIT'S MUSICIANS V1.0

GOAL: You have until July 20 to learn a song, any song of your choice, with the instrument 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 musician. After all entries have been made we will judge on cleanliness, accuracy, techniques (ex. good harmonics or vibrato), styles, speed, etc. and overall impression.

NOTICE: Do not upload to a site where you have to register to view the videos (ie, facebook, etc)

*** OPEN REGISTRATION ***

Clock showing what time it is in EST: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/ti...a/eastern-time/

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.


There are 6 categories:

Drums Section
Bass Section
Guitar Section
Keyboard Section

AND YES!

VOCALS!

There is also OTHER INSTRUMENTS, like violin, flutes, sax, ruler (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GclK1aUxZWA) and hell, even bottles (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZHsL-qiQYE&feature=related).

Winners will be voted for, and named Musician of The Month (Guitarist, Bassist, Vocalist, etc etc of the month)

HERE'S THE CATCH:

Winners will be featured in the Webzine UG Amplified, approved himself by blue_strat.

Please post the title of the song and band you are choosing and the category you are joining. Your registration will be invalidated if your registration is incomplete.

Post if you are interested. You can also join multiple categories but only 1 entry per instrument.

RULES:
1. Please do not pick a song you already know.
2. Feel free to register as long as you will pass an entry by the 20th.
3. The winners get featured in our webzine UG Amplified.
4. Refer to Goal Post.
5. Refer to Rule No.1!!!

Happy Playing. Anyone may enter. Except John Petrucci, John Myung, Jordan Rudess, James LaBrie and Mike Portnoy.

That was a joke.

I thought we made the point in the last guitarist themed one that it was so unsuccessful because of the sheer lack of time given for registration and submission?

If registration was opened up for another few days I may be able to do it, but I'm in the middle of moving into a dorm and starting college courses, so I'm not sure how much time I'll have to participate.
#4
RPGoof: Just join if you want to. I can bend the rules on registration but not the one on the deadline because the webzine has a deadline.

To be honest, I can't be arsed. Lord knows I've only ever entered one of these, and I'm too busy this week anyway what with just moving into a new house, plus leaving town for four days fo my uncle's funeral.

I would join but there's actually no point if there's no tiers, everyone'll just shred and I can't so nah.

+ 1. Unless each section had three tiers, this would be pointless.

You won't find many musicians here

I will do drums, advanced I guess. Let me find a song and I'll edit it in this post. When do we need the video made?

REEDIT: I'm gonna do Cursing Akenaten by After the Burial - advanced because it's more groovy!

This is looking pretty grim if registration closes in 2 days. I'll register for vocals, but I don't want to be the only one hah.

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I don't remember you registering.

You could sign up. Actually you could just sign up, I don't care much for the registration deadline but I will close all entries on the 20th for the mag.

LIST UPDATED, cheers.

I'll sign up, but I'm a really really bad singer. Do you REALLY need an entry from me?
#28
I would join, but this week is a bad one for me.

If we could do one of these in September I'd be fine, though.

If I find I have time, I'll join tomorrow. I don't think I will though.

Quick question: Is there a "Best Beginner", "Best Intermediate" and "Best Advanced" award? Or is it just "Best X-ist"
#29
Crossroads - Cream (Guitar, Intermediate).

Glad to see the tiers there. Hope this goes well.

EDIT: Haha, the tabs on this website are telling me its intermediate. Well, okay then.

This thread needs more publicity. Ask for it to be stickied?


Put in in for Guitar, Easy tier with Breath by Breaking Benjamin.
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.
#33

It's not about winning. It's all about improving.

It's a surprise.

But every tier will have a winner, that I can assure you.
