GOAL: You have until June 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

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:

I think this is the first time that I actually have a song that I want to learn and adequate time to learn it, so I should actually get this done this month.

Guitars - Advanced - Chet Atkins/Jerry Reed - Jerry's Breakdown
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I'd like to do a collaboration, anyone else want to?

Any specific songs?
#5
I'll play any kind of song. I like rock mostly though. New rock, old rock, if it's rock I generally like it.
#6
Man the last one was kind of dead. Hopefully this one is a little more alive

Just one for now.

Turn Soonest to the Sea - Protest the Hero (Intermediate guitar and Advanced bass)
#7
Sign me up. I'll do Come as You Are by Nirvana for easy guitar, and if it's ok for me to try the entry I didn't finish last month, then Path of the Wind by Joe Hisaishi for intermediate guitar.

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.

To A Friend - Alexisonfire, Guitar, Easy, if you would be so kind?
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.
#13
Might change it later on but for now, make it Alchemy by Intervals, intermediate guitar.

Devil in a midnight mass by billy talent on bass in intermediate. Is my easy cover(bombtrack) from last month carried over to this one?
#17
Might not have time, but I want to get better at keys, so put me down under other for working out a solo piano/vocal version of Dr. John's Right Place, Wrong Time
BOOM-SHAKALAKALAKA-BOOM-SHAKALAKUNGA
#19

I really think Turn Soonest To The Sea should come under advanced for guitar as well as bass. It's not their hardest song but it's still sufficiently difficult.

Also In Waves by Trivium is definitely intermediate, not easy, if he is doing the solos.


For my entries can you carry over my two bass covers here as there were no others last month:

Intermediate:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7cKWA0G1wM

Advanced:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naFrLwDn8lA

For intermediate guitar I will probably do Ghost of Karelia by Mastodon.

For advanced guitar I will probably do War by Joe Satriani as I have only really done Protest The Hero covers the last few months.

For easy guitar and bass I'll do In My Time Of Need by Opeth.

Doubt I'll get them all done but I shall try
#28
Oh ok, I wasn't sure where it should go.

If that is moved to advanced I'll probably do something else

The Seduction - He is Legend (intermediate guitar)

I guess I'll do a song by myself this round. What would you consider one day remains by Alter Bridge?
#31
Put me down for "Altitudes" by Jason Becker in the advanced guitar category. I'm feeling like torturing my poor fingers. I'll try to have it up as soon as I can but it's gonna take some work. This might be the kick in the ass I need to finally learn it, though.
#32
Well there goes that category if you get that in

I guess I'll try two songs.
one day remains- Alter Bridge- intermediate guitar.
I'll probably regret this one, but it's worth a shot right?
Through the fire and flames- Dragonforce-Advanced guitar
I guess if I have time I'll try to learn another. I don't know yet. i'll definitely try.
#36
Sigh, I've probably got too much going on at once as it is, but if I get time I think I'll take a crack at "Comfort Zones" by The Ocean, intermediate guitar.
