Seasons greetings and happy holidays everybody!

GOAL: You have until DECEMBER 20TH to learn a song, any song of your choice, with the instrument of your choice, and record it and upload it (to Youtube, your UG profile or any related site). Audio alone is fine. Video is fine. This should prove some fun and a good time waster and all along you're 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/hear the song (ie, facebook, etc)


*** REGISTRATION IS OPEN RIGHT UP UNTIL THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE ***

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.


These are the categories:

Guitar -- Easy/Intermediate/Advanced -- (note that 'easy' doesn't mean 'beginner')

Bass Guitar Intermediate/Advanced

Other

The finally completed COLLABORATION category! --


NOTES:

Other includes drums, vocals, keyboards, kazookeylele, bottles, or even the almighty triangle!

The COLLABORATION entries must consist of 2 or more people doing whatever instrument they feel like. All entrants for each song need to confirm their participation in order to be entered.



Don't forget the official UG Group for this monthly competition! Join for updates and news on current and future competitions. Suggestions are also welcome!



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. (Bear in mind I probably won't know what BBFSTEDT or whatever stands for so dn't abbrv. wrds & terms)

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

RULES:
1. Please do not pick a song you already know -- though finishing off a song you've tried and failed on sections of before is fine.
2. Feel free to register as long as you will post an entry by the 20th.
3. The winners get points
4. ...
5. Refer to Rule No.1!!!
6. Profit!

hmm, since my electric is broken I'll have to be creative.

I'll do something for easy guitar with my acoustic I think. It's a secret though

And I'm going to do a Protest the Hero, BTBAM, or Dillinger Escape Plan song on piano for lols. I'll let you know which one when I choose.

Can you please carry over my Surfing With The Alien over from last month, as there were no other advanced guitar entries.

Probably won't enter anything else, will let you know if that changes.

Oh, and just got back from seeing Steve Vai. Incredible.

I don't know where this would fall under but I plan on doing "gods of war arise" by amon amarth. More than likely I can only do one of the two guitar tracks due to budget and lack of a puter atm.

Oh, this gonna be good

I've got it narrowed down to
The Divine Suicide of K - Protest the Hero
Sequoia Throne - Protest the Hero
All Bodies - BTBAM

K and All Bodies are doable. Sequoia would be the coolest but is fast as **** so I would probably have to slow it down a little. We'll see...

Phils, do you ever pick anything but BTBAM or PTH?

NO!


But seriously, I like playing their stuff because (besides the fact that they're my two favorite bands) it gives me a good challenge and makes me better.

I play other stuff too but usually enter the PTH/BTBAM stuff in this comp because they're harder and I have a month the do them.

So the "other" category. I don't know if I'll have it at full speed, but it should be fun.

So much tapping. Markus Vanhala should just change his name to "Van Halen" and get it over with.
