I'll judge! I was thinking of making this thread a few days ago.

EDIT: Dude, I'd take out the mistake rule and the video rule. Lot's of people on here simply can't record with a camcorder because A.) They don't have one or B.) It'll make it sound like crap.

Songs from all CDs are aloud. It's good if you do a different song as someone else, but I don't see why it's a problem if multiple people do the same song. Just try to steer away from it.

Backing tracks are allowed. Just specify what instrument you're doing.

For example, we all know the backing track to Fade to Black on www.guitarbt.com has the acoustic already added it. If your BT is something like this, specify that you didn't do that instrument.

Here's my entry by my band Sad But True: Master of Puppets

http://www.sadbuttrue-band.com/media/DownloadSong.asp?song_id=11

This is a full band recording other than the drums which are a custom MIDI drum track laid down by our master drum sequencer, Machinax. I do all the James parts - vocals, rhythm guitar, and the melodic interlude solo. Lead guitar is by our über-shredder lead guitarist Matt Hughes, and bass by our groovemaster Greg Bagley, aka Lokire.

Sad But True (The band) > All the other recordings. seriously. quit now!


Umm, i might be able to do Hero Of The Day. However, anyone that checks the Megadeth recording contest will know i can't get recording equipment for about a week, and even then that's only a maybe, so just put me in the "Maybe" pile.

So we're still allowed to post entries? Or is it too late to sign up?

If I can still sign up, I'll play One! It'll be a solo performance with a backtrack.
