Happy New Year guys!

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.

And I might do Daylight Dies by KSE, easy, guitar.

I will definitely get ITPOE done, I have no excuses this time as I have no lectures before the 20th. Hopefully I will get my Ibanez back from repair the day I go back to uni in which case I'll get started right away.

Haven't been able to practice. My grandparents have been staying with me for about the last month and a half. They're leaving on the 8th, though, so I will be able to practice at least a little, and maybe even get the song up.

This may seem like a stupid question, but assuming that I cover both parts of Paralells, how would I put the videos for both parts into one video like Random3 did with Ascendency?

The only difficult part of this song is the solo. :s

can i do the ocean by led zepplin on guitar, bass, and vocals?

i'd say intermediate on guitar, beginner on the other two.

Also, is it cool if i put them all in 1 video?

What is this mess? Voting's still going on for the last one!

Well I MIGHT do another one this time. I'll let you know for sure by about Tuesday probably, and I'll probably do Viking Kong by Paul Gilbert, but I don't know yet for sure.

EDIT: ^ I'd split that video up if I were you. When he breaks the threads down, he'll have the same video for two songs, and people may not care about seeing one of them.
Save a trip to the RT!

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.

It's called "picture-in-picture", and it's an effect that free editors like Movie Maker don't tend to have. Apparently there are free WMM plugins that can do it, though.

I "acquired" Sony Vegas which does it.

I only use that effect in it, so I don't feel particularly guilty about not paying for it.
#29
Also, I will not be doing ITPOE because the bloody backing track I made has decided to change the tempos and time changes for no reason, and I am not spending that much time redoing it. I'll think of another song for advanced.


EDIT: Screw it, I'll just record over the original song.

^Good man. I did the same thing with Cowboys from Hell a couple months back. Nothing bad happened. I'll probably end up doing it with Home.

Sure. I also "acquired" Sony Vegas.
#32
I just normally like to make my own backing track so I can practice my mixing. A bit pissed off that the file just decided to change the meters. Problem is there are so many changes in that 26 odd minute long song that I couldn't really rectify it without just remaking the whole thing again.

Oh, and Niejel. If you don't enter, I'm not either, as I feel that winning by default (Which I did once) is not winning at all.

Please enter... I have already put many hours into this song...
