GOAL: You have until March 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. ...

This month I shall do Sequoia Throne by Protest The Hero for advanced guitar and bass.

I'll also try A Day At The Beach by Joe Satriani for intermediate guitar.

Also I didn't realise people were actually voting for me for my bicycle horn cover... I can't really give myself any points for that even if I win the voting because that doesn't seem fair :p

Damn you I started learning that song last night


But I'll try to get Hair Trigger by Protest the Hero (advanced) in. I didn't realize I was playing the end of the song horribly wrong and lazy. If that doesn't count, then I'll do She Who Mars the Skin of Gods (same band and difficulty).

Well if you actually know the song and you're fixing it up, I'm not sure that counts. Technically you know the song, you just learned it wrong.


I'll put you in for your other choice.

Sure thing.


I'm guessing it's in the easy category? I'm not too familiar with the tune.

Yeah Tender Surrender is definitely advanced, I'm planning on doing it at some point.

Yeah, it was a toss up for me between that and Jason Becker's "Altitudes". But I just learned his "Blue", so I think it's time to learn a Vai joint.

Sick. Great thing you have going here.



Was this your idea? I see that it goes a ways back.



No it wasn't my idea. I just took over running it because I have no life. It seems to work out


Actually I think Random may have come up with it.

Nah, I ran it for a few months over a year ago.

I can't remember who originally started it but the first one I participated in was June 2010, and I have pretty much submitted something every month since.

That was when it was specifically for guitarists, it became musicians when Niejel was running it just under two years ago.

If you are going to do all the lead parts for the Orianthi/Vai piece then I think it should go in advanced, there aren't any extremely difficult parts but I would say a lot of the leads are too fast for intermediate.
