FIRST ROUND- THE THEME IS A COVER OF CHOICE.
You may record any song, with or without music in the back ground. Send like to UG profile, myspace or youtube page by latest, Oct. 18th.


So I was thinking about this today. A guitar competition/tournament. Here's how it would work.
Different "divisions" for skill levels
"Faceoffs" would be a 1 on 1 competition, arranged in a tournament-tree style
You post your song on your profile, myspace or youtube.
"Disciplines" will be randomly selected for each "faceoff". Examples of disciplines would be: Classic rock covers, Modern Covers, Improv, Own songs, ect
People vote for you, voting would be open for a certain amount, Most likely 3 to 14 days, depending on the round.
More could be added

Anyone interested?

EDIT:
When you sign up (or if you're already signed up) state from 1-5 how reliable you are in terms of being able to send in music. 1 means that you're busy and there is a chance that you won't be able to submit your work, and 5 is that you'll send in your tracks for sure. This is so that i can put more reliable people with each other, so in the even that people drop out, it won't effect more reliable players.

EDIT 2: So the brackets have been made. Round 1 winner will play round 2 winner. Round 3 winner will play round 4 winner and so on.
I ask that all those signed up to please check in with the thread (post anything) to make sure you guys are still around.
Users can start posting, but the deadline will be exactly one week after the remaining two guitarists sign up.

EDIT: THE COMP IS OPEN. THE DEADLINE FOR FIRST ROUND SUBMISSION IS OCTOBER 18TH AT MIDNIGHT.

Or you could just post it on youtube and read the comments. no need for a tournament, unless there's money.

If anyone wants to "sign up", say so, I'l add names to the list in the opening post, and when sufficient people (16, 32, 64, ect) sign up, the brackets will be made, and the show will start.

Thats an awesome idea, or if somehow we could make a community thing then we could all post our videos on the same site, then anyone that went on it could vote on it out of like 5 stars. Anyone think thats a good idea?

yeah, like a group with several threads (e.g. blues, pop, rock, metal, folk, country, jazz, classical) and then up to a certain number of people can enter into any genres (maybe 10 people to each maximum before its gets un-managable). people then vote for their favourite and the person who gets most votes is teh w1nn3r.
all teh w1nn3rs then enter into a seperate thrad where they are voted for and eventually you end up with an ultimate-winner?

Yeah thats a really good idea, maybe we should get some moderators though, so we can actually control it.

EDIT: Maybe we could have a moderator per thread, then experienced judges on a particular genre to decide. (if you get what i mean by all that)

I'm a new guy here at UG, but I would like to enter too. Seems like a good way to get to know people, and maybe learn some new techniques!


Plz check my profile and comment and rate my playing!!!

BACK LIKE A HEART ATTACK

What happens when all the good people enter the beginner and pwn all the n00bs?

I'm sure it'd happen.
#38
EDIT: I'M UPDATING THE LIST.
We have like nearly ten people, I'l wait till we have 16 or possibly 32 members, then we can start.
As for mod regulation, I'd like to keep this directly non-mod regulated, but mods can join.
#39
The blues forum does a blues duel tournament which is always awesome and tons of fun. However, because of genre disparities, I don't think it'd be a good idea to have one huge "guitar tournament" It'd prolly be better to stick to tournaments in the different genre sections.
#40
Count me in!!!!!

Just as a though, if you were lookin for more lead / solo based battles then perhaps provide one backing track? (Probably more useful near the semi-s and final)
