Hey guys

Ever fancied yourself as a Froosh-fanboi? What about a Slashay? Are you a Vedd-head?

Well, look no further - here's your chance to shine!

The premise of this is simple - you record an mp3 of you playing in the style of your favourite modern rock artist (be it any of the above or others) and upload it to your UG profile! From there you, the MR legends (you make this forum what it is and can be in the future), vote on who has captured the essence of the particular artist and we announce a winner!

You'll have until midway through September to get your entry together. Once you've uploaded it, post the link in this thread and I'll edit it into the first post for ease of use. After the deadline, a final 10 will be selected, by you, to enter the final where you will have the chance to record a new mp3 or, alternatively, use your initial one. The winner will be decided by a private poll.


Mmmkay, rules time:

Rules

1. Each submission will be a maximum of 1 minute long;
2. Only one submission is allowed per user;
3. You cannot submit a cover - the submission is to be in the style of (no one likes a slavish copy). However, you are allowed to play over a chord progression of your chosen artist (for example, you can play in the style of John Frusciante over the chord progression of Scar Tissue or any Chilis/Frusciante solo song, you just cannot play the solo);
4. You can use whatever effects you wish;
5. There are no limits to the production techniques you can use to make your entry great;
6. There are no limits to the number of users who chose a particular artist. Thus, there can be multiple Kurt Cobain submissions.

Just remember guys, this is all a bit of fun. So let's enter into this in the spirit of things and start us on the way to being the best community on UG!

Hmm, I might do this. I'll probably do Froosh, but you never know.

I was having sex with a female dolphin. In the dream I was like:
"YEEEEEEEAAAARGH I'M SCREWIN' A FEMALE DOLPHIN!!!" and when I woke up I was like:
"... wtf"

Sign me up for Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, I'll cut a bit out of an existing piece.
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

By the way: Is it OK if it's kind of satyrical?

Because I have an idea for Eddie Vedder, but it's kind of joke-y.

Yeah, that'd be great!

I might do Matt Bellamy. Are we including bass, vocals, drums, piano, etc.? Or is it just guitar?
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

You can include whatever you want - if you're a one man band, fire away!

I hope to upload a joke Omar Rodriguez one over the next couple of days as an example.

Can we use the drumbeat to an existing song by said artist but record the other instruments ourself? Because that would make it easier for me.

Thanks. I'll be using hydrogen to do the drums, so if I don't have to make it up myself, that should be easier.

Alright, I'm officially entering now! I put up "Experimentation (MR Contest Version)" up in my profile. Froosh style - has the layering, backwards guitar, etc, etc.

Is this enough for entering or do I have to sign my name in blood now?

This.

But I really did intend to do one. I was thinking about doing a Muse one AND a QOTSA one. But I've been busy as of late (yesterday was the first time I had a day at home in ages and I felt really lethargic) and I go into Sixth Form tomorrow, so I'll have some work changes to adapt to. =/

Well, I've been struggling with ideas, and the fact that I'm a lazy shit doesn't help either. Plus I've had to catch up on some schoolwork over the summer and I've ended up leaving it last minute. I may have a little time over the weekend to do a quick one.

Its kind of shame this hasn't really been all that big...

Yeah, props definitely go to Cag (or whoever else thought of it ) It was really a great idea...we're just too lazy to truely bring it through.
