Alright all of the slots are taken, if you aren't going to be able to record by June 9th, then please tell me so here so that someone else can have a chance to enter.

When you are finished recording your songs, PM them to me.

Thanks,


Rules:

No backing tracks, and your cover has to have vocals in it. I'm gonna say only guitar, just because it really isn't fair to everyone else if you can record bass and drums yourself.. it will automatically make your cover sound so much better. You can change the song up as much as you want, and please don't enter if you aren't sure that you can get around to recording it.

i mean the only instrument. It isn't fair for people that don't have a bass guitar and/or drums.

I'm going to give everyone a good 2 weeks to record these. You'll have plenty of time

If you choose your songs wisely no they don't all NEED base.

and its fair to the bassists who dont have a guitar or drums?

pretty friggin stupid if you ask me.

and the guy has every right to correct the dude on the spelling of Bass. what if some1 came up to you and typed "hey i play giitar too", or " i like the droms".

1) it makes them look like a retard
2) it disrespects the instrument.
#23
Well without drums and BASS it's not really a cover. I don't have an acoustic guitar and just electric guitar is not going to sound very good...
#24
I'm confused. we have to make a cover only using a guitar and vocals?

I think you should be able to add in whatever we want. Drum machines on the pc will be fine.
And if you REALLY want you can just drop tune a regular 6 string guitar and do a simple bass line.
I bought the damn £280 effects processor I demand the right to use it.
#27
You can download audacity for free, and use it to record a bass part on a guitar then drop it an octave. You can download hammerhead for free, download the acoustic drum kit, and make a drum loop.

I'm not entering, but you can do drums and bass without expensive software/the real instruments (it's not top notch, but it's passable).

Audacity here

Hammerhead here

Chew my ass out over a typo some more won't ya?

I guess you guys fail to see how it would be unfair to allow people to record with bass and drums, I myself could include bass guitar.. but for someone that doesn't have a bass they're sort of screwed aren't they? The song is meant as a guitar and vocal competition, there are plenty of great Chili Peppers songs that you can record and sound great simply with a guitar and vocals. If you don't like it, then don't enter.. That simple
#33
Peaceful Rocker, just a few things...
1) When do our entries have to be submitted?
2) Do we just email you the mp3? Or...?
3) We can record multiple guitar parts right? ie. overdubs etc.

And to everyone else...I know that it may seem unfair to rule out bass/drums/backing tracks, but Peaceful Rocker was just trying to keep things simple so everyone who enters has a fair chance. Secondly, stop being immature and viewing it as a limitation, I've always preferred covers that differ from the original, and acoustic versions of alot of chili peppers' songs could sound great.

So quiiiit ya bitchin' and lets just get on with it. Talk about taking the fun out of it...

You can record multiple guitar parts, and this is not judged by how much it sounds like the original. You can choose to make the song your own version.

All recordings need to be posted on Friday, June 9th. That should be plenty of time.

Yes you can record multiple guitar tracks, lengthen the song for longer solo's, change the key, anything you want. Feel free to make the song your own.

EDIT: PM me the links to your songs when you have finished them. They'll all be posted on the same date.

Ehhhh... Put me down for "My Friends"
I may run into time issues, but for now I'll give it a shot.
If I had $1, for everytime I had $1, I'd be twice as broke as I am now...
#37
I'd like to take part in this, it sounds awesome. Could you put me down for "Californication"? I mean, I know it's like the easiest song ever, but I just love the simplicity John has in it. Sorry to seem like a n00b.
Listen to me play music at:

MySpace

My Blues Side Project

Guitar is my drug, my first love and my life. Without it, I'd be just another Asian kid who sucks at math.

Lespaulsson you seem to get pissed off very easily, and it also looks like you have a problem. You, sir, are a very bassist man
#40
Theres TONS of bassists on here, possibly like a hundred regular bass players... if you dont have a bass why not just collab with someone else, and allow bass to be entered. I could see the drum part where as its hard to just throw them in.. but i mean bass is bass.. it gives the song a nicer sound but not THAT much nicer...rhcp aint rhcp without bass :p
haha my 2 cents
o well...dont matter either way, but bass is da ****
Work to live, not live to work.
