I thought itd be cool if there was a challenging piece of music that we could play every month on UG, that would test and place us into catergories based on skill level, to acheive the points you would have to have a microphone and play it into the computer and the site would have to read all the notes to make sure they were all cleanly hit. Could this ever be possible? just thought itd be cool.

No. Because:

1) Not everyone has recording software
2) Not everyone wishes to participate
3) People don't play guitar to rank themselves among others. It's not a competition.
D) We'd never decide on the challenging piece of music because of everyone's tastes
5) We'd all get bored of it quickly

mics come with computers if im not mistaken, it would only be for people who want to participate, if u wouldnt want to compete dont join, this would have no effect on someone's willingness to play guitar

If that wasn't intentional, you fail. And I think it would be cool. Everybody doesn't have to participate. Whether it is possible or not is the question

If you wanna show off your MAD SQILZ, go to someone's profile, listen to a song, write "liek omg u suk i play it better lol" and record your own version. It doesn't have to be official.

Or did you want your 5 minutes of glory on the internet? Why not do something original and put it up on YouTube? (like Canon Rock was a few years ago)

Why not just ask people to give an honest account of the most difficult songs they can play?

I've noticed that here, most people are either master shredders or absolute beginners. Few are in between.

The most difficult stuff I can play is "I believe in a thing called love" by The Darkness. I can play loads of songs, but few solos. I always get stuck halfway through a song because I can't play the solo.

hes right i personally like the idea, but if u dont want to participate, just dont. u dont need to bash Stevewatever for posting his ideas. and

a) almost everyones computer has a mic
b) audacity is free, good quality recording software
c) if thers no mic, buy an adapter at Radioshack for $1 to plug in directly to your computer's mic port (which is what i do cuz the quality is better anyway)

as to the song, i think it should be more like a UG mod created jam, just some guitar playing, that way there would be far less controversy on style, artists, etc.

I pretty much disagree with everything in this list, except for points 1) and 2), which you obviousy can't disagree with, but would not be a problem, just some people would not take part.

Why are you being so hostile? I was presenting my opinion. And it looks like a few people share it...

That wouldn't work, but I think there should be a "Recommendations" section split into different difficulties and whatnot to be updated every so often.

I dunno, makes sense to me, as it could stop people posting "which song" threads all the time.
