No UG articles or reviews will be stolen

Who the hell are you?
First let me introduce myself. I am Funcoot, I made the first very successful UG-Radio with psp401 hosting it. After it's initial success I let the community take care of it and I am here yet again with another project, "UG-Magazine."


What is UG-Magazine?
UG-Magazine will be an internet magazine aimed at the UG Audience. It will feature Guitar Gear reviews, song reviews, low key band interviews, and many wacky things, all appealing to guitarists in some way. Yes it will be free of charge. Unlike most magazines, we will not be releasing it weekly or monthly. We will simply release each issue as it is ready. Yes we do have people currently on the team. Team list will appear in the coming days.

What do you need help with?
Well I basically need the basics. For now just graphic designers, writers, and reviewers.

Graphic Designers requirements: Must be able to design magazine like layouts, have photoshop, and willing to work with their imagination.

Writers requirements: Must be able to fix grammar and spelling errors in articles and or interviews, must have good people skills, must stick to topic at hand whilst working on an assignment.

Reviewers requirements: Must have a decent camera to take pictures, explain things well, and come up with a good lengthy article.

Competitions much?
Right now we have one competition, check below for details and upcoming ones.

Tag Line: We need a tag line for our magazine and we are leaving it up to you guys to pick one. (Tag line is something like, "You want it? We got it!") Please PM me your entries, we will later set up a poll for the top 5 we like. Winner gets his/her tag line used permanently.

Contact Us
Currently we have no email. If you desperately need me send me a PM. If not contact me one of my instant messenger screen names listed below. We will have an email and site up soon.

Have you ever done this before? It's freakin' sweet! Earlier today, I was bored as hell just laying on my bed. I had an erection, so I started to use my penis as a gear stick and I was pretending I was driving. Has anyone else here ever tired this?

Also note, all the news on the current cover you see are just place holders.

if you ever need the odd concert review or something id be glad to help, im seeing sum41 and finger eleven on halloween can take pics and give a full review of that if you want.

SUGGESTIONS FOR FUNCOOT:
credit goes to me, bjovi and rorythereaper.

and for people who want to do...CD reviews, for example, they shold only be allowed one review per issue. that way there will be reviews for future issues. u know? so they dont do all of their reviews in one article and have nothing to contribute later.

one suggestion is that every member involved in the UG Mag has to stick to their desired ... uhh thing they wanna do. like if someone wants to do grammer and graphics design, they should pick the one they really want to do, and do nuthing but that. it would make everything seem more organized insted of having a million different peoples stuff all over the place.

anther example would be someone who wants to do CD reviews and local bands, they should pick one of them and go with it. if someone wants to change, then it first has to be approved and the change can take into effect on the next issue.


As another suggestion, minor articles from ALL (or damn nigh all) staff on their local music scene?


NEWS:
ok so me and bjovi have decided that since funcoot hasnt been on were running it.

This sounds like the UG Home page for one and it also sounds like UG TV in a magazine form.

Got same comments about UG Radio.. "No thanks, I'll listen to my collection, or go turn on the radio."

This is a fun project. And we will offer other news that the front page does not.

In other words total gossip???

Sorry about this as I do not like to mess with this sort of thing but really UG is a magazine as it is. It has News, Reviews, Interviews, Columns, Lessons and well a few Tabs.

How much more can this Magazine do??? Besides being easier to get into???

Right now, no amount of negative criticism will keep me from getting at least one issue out. Don't bash what you haven't tried. A lot of people though UG-Radio was going to be ****, but it turned out well.

I'm sure you have to have Zappp's approval to make a magazine using UG stuff dude.

Ahh, but you don't have legal issues like this. If you take UG's articles and reviews, you have to have his permission. Radio wasn't like that.

Ahh man, I am just using the UG name, he didn't talk to me about it when making UG Radio I'm sure he wont mind now. If he does, the project will go away. He seems layed back about the UG name anyways. No profit will be turned from it.

I don't think they are going to take the articles, they will get they're own information and content maybe?

Or what Funcoot said maybe.

I might do a CD review or two. I specialise in Acoustic Music in the singer-songwriter side. (e.g. Damien Rice, Elliott Smith, Terra Naomi, Josh Ritter, Joshua Radin and of course the Irish artists.)

I didn't exactly mean to Bash it but just making a point.

Very understandable. I am used to it.

Sorry Funcoot, I can't support you on this one. There's no way I'm submitting work for both UG and "UG Magazine". Good luck though.

Did you like George Thorogood? I saw him one time and I thought he wasn't very good. He thinks he is such a great guitarist even though the other guitarist does all the work.

no way man, George was actually the only one really playing. half way through it i was wondering if his rhythem guitarist was gonna do anything. he was but i could only hear George tearin it up. he is my all time fav blues/rock guitarists ever.

I can give the odd concert review too. I have tickets to Finger Eleven and Sum 41 already and i might be going to see Ozzy on Oct. 24 and it might be backstage tickets too so i will be awsome. ( Ozzy isn't 100% tho my bro is the one with the tickets and he asked his gf to go first but there is a good chance she can't go)

You really need Z-ppp's permission. Radio is one thing, a magazine with the exact same premise as the website is a different matter entirely.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

I'd like to do some CD-reviews if you'll have me. I pretty much only listen to metal stuff though, so I dunno if I'm suitable for your magazine.

I'd love to help you with the Graphic design stuff but I don't have enough time these days... and I'm yet to get photoshop for Mac.

I could do reviews, articles, edits, and interviews (woot for powerful uncles), anything really.
Even lessons or something like that.
