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.

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.

I did that one before!

Anyway, I'll go with Bone Marrow by Protest the Hero. Advanced Guitar. I promise I'll submit! Along with maybe a few more Protest songs that I already knew.

EDIT: Fixed it! Add me

I think I'll give this a try once I pick a few songs.

Question: Do we have to have backing tracks or can it be the instrument alone?
We're all alright!
#14
I wanna register but school just started, and most of the days the schedule goes up to 5pm
#15
Hey guys, do you think that The Root of All Evil - Dream Theater is Advanced? I think it's kinda intermediate. Solo's hard, but the riffing's pretty simple.

Somekid94: A videocam and guitar rig ought to do the trick.

Mathedes: It is preferable to have a backing track.

Shinami: Evenings. Or early mornings. XD

Will update OP late
#17
I really should do this.

Someone wanna pick an intermediate piano piece for me?
Or saxophone, even.
#18
Me thinks Root Of All Evil is advanced, just cause of the solo and tapping. Not too hard but I think it's higher then intermediate.

Also evenings. Up until 17:00

Rap is music,far better than metal for example. id much rather hear about hoes and anal sex than dragons and supressed homosexuality.

BeefWellington is banned but he told me he is entering:

Death Of A Martian-Red Hot Chili Peppers-Guitar-Easy
Quote by Athabasca

#21
OP updated. Entering with:

Guitars, Easy: Broken Sonnet - Hale
Guitars, intermediate: Waiting - Slapshock
Keyboards: Kiss The Rain - Yiruma

If I skipped your entry, it means I didn't understand it. Please follow the format of Instrument, Title of the Song, Artist and Tier. COMPLETE DETAILS PLEASE.

and avoid posting youtube links if possible and unnecessary. Kinda confuses me on the entries. Show proper label if you are to post such links. Just a request.
