Anyone want to have an Improv contest. I just started with theory so I wont be in it but I'll judge. If you want to be in it post same for judging. We'll start once we have a few people in it. You will post a track of you to jamming to a backing track of your choice. I think we will keep the contestants at ten.Allright we need some judges.Any backing tracks would be apprciated.

1.Tenacious Me
2.NoQuarter2

4.NineinchNails 0

Contestants

2.Alpine high

damn wish i had some better recording equipment, sounds like fun.


just curious, how you gonna do it? like just have a specific jam track and have people record a solo over it?
#7
Well its got to be complete improv you can't write anything beforehand. Once the contest starts you will have a certain number of days to post.(I don't know how many yet.)

we could have one track for people to jam over or you could post tracks in different genres?

I'm open to that what do you other people think?

THis sounds great, ill definetly enter. I probably wont do very good, but im just in it for the fun

But we should have a backing track given that we have to jam over so its easier to judge.

Let me ask you, does a machine like yourself ever experience fear?

I ll add you. The problem with one track is not everyone likes the same type of music. (go figure )

in my opinion, i think you should set a set amount of time for each impro, say a minute or two...so that no entries are biased...just an idea...
#32
im in if you want more people, and ill make my own backing track

I feel sorry for the drummer, he gets stuck with a guitarist who can't hold a rhythm to save his life and a vocalist in the middle of a heavy-flow month.

i think you should post ONE and only ONE backing track that all contestants improv over and by doing so you can have a set standard to judge upon, and that will make it easier for the judges and contestants.
#36
But not all the contestants like the same music
