Hey Everyone

I saw a competition once about writing and recording an album in under 30 days and i thought that it was a really good idea.

So if anyone is interested all you have to do is write and record an album in 30 days. It sounds hard but the rules i am going to set make it alot easier

Rules:
1)Albums must have between 5 and 20 songs
2)They can be any length (you could have five 20 second songs but as long as there good songs they will do)
3)Your music can be any genre it doesnt matter
4)You can upload your music here on u-g or just upload it to any other music streaming site.
5)As it would be difficult to record proffesionally the recording quality doesnt matter so you could record just you and an acoustic guitar on a mobile phone and it would be fine

Extra Info:
I dont want you to waste money on studio time just for this so here are some ways you could record your songs:
1)If you have old songs of yourself use them
2)Use a mobile phone, mp3 player or video camera to record yourself.
3)If you can record through your pc use audacity as it is free and comes with lots of features.

The competition will start when we have at least 10 people involved so i will update when the closing date will be soon. Anyone can join after the time has started but you will get less time. After the closing date me and the judges will pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd places and get back to you then.

Also i hope you like the new look of the thread

I'm very interested in this, not sure if I want to submit or judge though. If I was a contestant there's no way I could start before summer starts, I'm too busy with school right now. I guess I'll judge for now but might switch later.
