Ok, so this contest is intended for any covers of big name acoustic songs. In other words, dont enter a cover of an acoustic song that no one has ever heard. As long as the band/musician who wrote the song is signed to a major label you should be fine.

-You will be judged on vocals as well as guitar playing, but primarily guitar skills since this is a guitar forum.
-You cannot have anyone else in the recording, and cannot have any other instruments, besides acoustic guitar and your voice.

This contest will be judged democratically. Anyone can post their opinions on who they think the winner should be, but please wait a week or two, or until a few entries have been made. The deadline for entries is March 20th. That gives everyone a solid two weeks to get their songs entered!

Good luck!

Dude, just do whatever.

If anyone wants to do anything, don't ask. Just do it.

I don't know if this is a contest anymore.

I like wardo9988's cover of "The Great Escape" best.
