How was April Fools foo?

CALLING ALL OF THE PIT'S MUSICIANS V10.0

GOAL: You have until April 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 ***

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.

Drums Section
Bass Section

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.

Intermediate guitar - Jeff Beck: A Day In The Life

Sir, the contents of my mouth just blew all over my keyboard, desk, and part of my monitor. For the record, it was slightly chewed Keebler cookies and coffee slurry.

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.

Ok this time I will try to not change every single entry from what I initially say

For now, at least:

Beginner: Patterns in the Ivy by Opeth
Intermediate: Lights of Heaven by Joe Satriani
Advanced: The Curse of Castle Dragon by Paul Gilbert

I think Lights of Heaven is right at the top of intermediate. It certainly isn't as hard as Castle Dragon, but someone may want to check and give their opinion.
#7
This should give me motivation to finally learn this song.
Guitar Intermediate: Red House- Jimi Hendrix
#8
I'll try a couple this month:

Bridget Mermikides' arrangement of Gabriel Faure's Pavane
Intermediate guitar. It's not fast, but it does have some 3 against 2 rhythm.

And, for Easy guitar,
Michael Chapdelaine's arrangement of California Dreaming
(Or kind of his arrangement -- my TAB skills suck a bit!) I've already been working on it a couple of weeks, so should have it by the deadline.
#9
Guitar, easy, Conquer All by Behemoth.
Guitar, intermediate, Final Abhorrent Dream by Rings of Saturn.

That's not an easy solo. That song is intermediate without question.

Guitar - Intermediate - Cradle of Filth - "Mannequin"

I'm almost done learning this song and realized it should be in EASY NOT INTERMEDIATE.
If you can change it, that'll be cool.

And video coming soon.

Yeah you can.


Also I'm gonna do Lights of Heaven and Castle Dragon on bass, same categories I think.



I hate you now I saw your Curse of Castle Dragon entry and thought "Hey, I just got a bass, I'll do the bass part to it, that's a cool song", but now that you're doing it it won't be the same.

I guess I'll do From The Blue by An Endless Sporadic, intermediate. I'll try guitar and bass I guess, probably still intermediate for bass, I'll check because I know there are some moments where it may be difficult.

EDIT: Nevermind, I was mixing up the bass part for a different song, this one probably barely qualifies for intermediate.

Changing my vocal entry to Quantumleaper by Scar Symmetry, if thats cool.

Is there to much growling for it to count? I don't know, you tell me. If it's not ok, let me know and I'll choose something else.

I'll do it next time. I'm going to have to drop out this time, I've got a lot a crap at school to deal with, I won't have time for this between a huge book assignment and a research paper, neither of which I've really started on. I think this is the first time I've really had to drop out, but it was bound to happen sooner or later .
