GOAL: You have until April 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.

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.

I'll sign up for Box Up My Bones- Cynic for intermediate.

I plan on learning and uploading a ton of songs though so I don't know what I'll end up submitting for intermediate for sure. Box Up My Bones also has a weird solo that I'm not sure I can figure out by ear all the way through. But the solo starts out really quiet and really fast (possibly advanced range) before becoming easier as it fades in, so the more of that beginning part of the solo I figure out the harder the song would be.

What the hell.

I replied to it last week but for some reason....it didnt. Lolwut?

Sod it, I'll reply here

I'm home from Uni for easter and left my Explorer at my student place so if you can hold off for maybe 1-2 weeks, then i'll be able to do it. If you're desperate, i'll see one of my housemates can do it because I think he gets back earlier.

That's weird. I probably reached the limit in my inbox or something.


That's fine, I'm not in a rush or anything but I need the measurements from your LP not your Explorer!

Looks advanced

Not terribly difficult but the advanced threshold got lowered a bit a few months ago so I think it would fit under it.

My song isn't too bad either tbh.
