I took the liberty of making a new thread to avoid confusion. This is for signing up for and discussing anything having to do with the Tabs & Chords competitions.


It's not too late to sign up, but don't do it in the Submissions thread.


so start posting in this discussion thread instead of the other one.

I'll go ahead and edit my post in the submission thread once it's time.

Well, actually, I've already finished my song (bored weekends ftw!), but I'm not gonna post it until I see what the rest of the competition is like.

I'm still putting down a bunch of ideas until I find something I like. Yesterday, I wrote at least 20 decent riffs. none are really amazing yet though.


none of them will be....


Edit: and I'll go ahead and "confirm" my judging status right now Regression. I'm committed.

ninja.kitty is in.


he got banned so I'm representing him. If he's not unbanned by the deadline, I'll probably be uploading his song and mine.

Its_Rock77, there's one implication with you judging. You might give people low scores which in turn lowers there average, which may cause you to place higher.

Personally, I don't care, and I trust that you wouldn't do that. However, others might not, so it all depends on whether they are fine with it or not. I can't imagine anyone having a problem with you judging, but who knows. As long as 2 or 3 people can back me up in confirming you, then you're confirmed.

I would sure hope that you guys trust me. Especially in a competition with no prize whatsoever (save bragging rights) I have no reasons to try to get myself up there.

does anyone object? I really wanna do this. :/

well, i hope my song could be subsummized under post-hardcore. i think, post-hardcore ain't a strictly defined genre, so i would be in.

who gets the file? is it gp5 oder must it be mp3 and recorded?
i apologize for my bad english.

you're already done? well, you can wait out the next couple of weeks to fine tune it.

but it should be Guitar Pro if possible. also upload a GP4 if you have GP5. Midis are recommended. I believe power tabs are allowed too if anyone doesn't have Guitar Pro.

Its_Rock77, I said midi are compulsory. Powertab and Guitar Pro both export to midi right? It seems like the one format we can expect from everyone. other possible formats aren't compulsory, but definately reccomended, just because it will be easier for judges.

Remember, midis can be imported into guitar pro.

And ganyo, is your piece new? If not, just letting you know that you can't use pieces you've written in the past.

And also, everyone will be able to see it, you post your piece in the submission thread.

I know that as a judge, people will have the chance at a better score if it's in GP or PT rather than midi. Not saying that people who use midis are destined for failure, but this competition isn't rating "thoughts", it's a competition of sound. If it's possible to add a GP or PT, you have a better chance of getting a better score (for yourself that is, not compared to others)

just my two cents. I know I'm not gonna upload a midi. I'm already not gonna win, so I might as well get my thoughts across in the best format possible.

Deadline hasn't been decided, no. Maybe October 12?

If everybody wants it sooner, I doubt I will be done in time. I have exams on at the moment, and it seems most of my teachers decided not to teach the curriculum this year.

And signed you up Momentosis. I don't actually know why people have to 'sign up'. They could just submit it anyway, but oh well, we'll just keep it this way.

We thought it was only fair that you be excluded from this competition because you're to good.

No, okay, added you now. Sorry.

And Its_Rock77, no need to worry, I've had exams so I havn't really been able to do anything. They're over after Thursday though. WOO!

Edit: Aww, why does everyone ignore Friendly Stoat? You can judge, your username misleads me into thinking you're trustworthy.

Yeah, I still don't know what kind of post-hardcore I want... Could be like Thursday and Thrice, or like The Fall of Troy. I'm kinda leaning towards TFOT.

Yeahh, I really don't know what sound I want.

And gahh. I didn't study last night because I was working on a piece, and I ended up completely failing my classics exam. Now my classics teacher who is head of acm (fancy name for the top class of each year) is threatening to pull me out of music. =|

Lol, only 2 left, I should consider putting in more effort. He is going to murder me when he sees my english exam. =\

I left all the essays blank, and spent the whole exam writing an argument on the flaws of education. To bad that wasn't even part of the exam.

Edit: Oh, and for those of you who like Scar Symmetry, I just found out the vocalist has left.

One of the best metal vocalists around... It's got me all dissapointed.

Woo! Exams are over!

My maths one wasn't very encouraging. I dropped my pen and it broke, so I ended up spending half the exam putting random things on my calculator.

I tried spelling out Its_Rock77 but lacked the R and K. Other than that I just looked at my calculator go from ^.^ to ^_^ magically. If you have a scientific calculator then try it, it's quite fun.

You just put ^.^ and then move the marker thingy over the dot, and the mouth thing will move. Exciting stuff.

I'd feel pretty creeped out..

So this is my life. Attempting to type usernames of people on an internet forum onto a calculator during maths exams.

Now it's time to start writing. May I warn you, I got a Trojan today, I think I've got rid of it, but if I don't come on the forums within the next week or so, I obviously didn't. Would you guys count Dir En Grey as post-hardcore?
