Hey hey guys, welcome to my competition, featured in my first instructor week here on GMC. As you know this week I am doing a blues theme, and this competition is no exception! cool.gif

Here's the deal: wink.gif

- Deadline is 28th or April (I will stretch it if needed of course) smile.gif
- No official sign ups (as soon as you post your finished blues song it will count as a sign up)
- Download the backing track that I've made and make a blues song out of it!

A word about the backing:

- Standard 12 bar blues progression from E, 100bpm tempo
- Only drum and bass tracks are in the track
- Drum track is simple shuffled rhythm
- Bass track is simple shuffled rhythm using only roots.
- The 12 bar blues is repeated 3x during this small song


You are free to add anything you like to this in order to finish this short tune, the more you add the better can be (example: guitar rhythm, guitar lead, vocals, organ, piano, brass, harp, whatever!)
Since it has only 3 repeated 12 bar frames, you have a limited time to express everything you want, so use all your knowledge about blues and other music styles to make it as interesting as possible! smile.gif


And of course the prizes for the best blues composers are appropriate! cool.gif


FIRST PRIZE:

BOSS BLUES DRIVER BD2

The Boss BD-2 Blues Driver guitar effects pedal delivers that creamy-yet-crunchy sound you've heard countless great blues guitar players call up - and at a great value! The BD-2 Blues Driver simulates the sound of a vintage tube amplifier, giving you instant access to timeless tones. It also responds to your playing dynamics, so you can pull out a range of tones to give each note the perfect flavor and feel. All in all, you'll love the warm overdrive and emotive distortion the Boss BD-2 Blues Driver adds to your rig. Over 10,000,000 sold!

SECOND PRIZE:

3 SETS OF DEAN MARKLEY "BLUE STEEL" ELECTRIC GUITAR STRINGS

Blue Steel™ are the world's first and finest Cryogenic- processed strings. That's right, this is the one everyone's been talking about. Blue Steel™ strings are a total breakthrough in string technology. Starting with the very finest quality materials, Blue Steel™ strings are frozen to minus 320 degrees Fahrenheit, held there for an exact period of time and then slowly and carefully brought back to their original temperature. This unique Cryogenic treatment realigns the molecular structure of the string, giving Blue Steel more highs and lows, a longer life and greater ability to stay in tune. It's simply amazing what a little -320º liquid nitrogen can do to a guitar string. Put on a set and see what all the noise is about. Twice the tone and twice the life.



THIRD PRIZE:

FUNK/ROCK ALBUM "IN THE MOOD" OF MY BAND "ANGRY PAPRIKAS" (FEATURING ME AND INSTRUCTOR BOGDAN!)

This album contains author material on our native language (Serbian), and although you may not understand the lyrics, I hope you enjoy our music! smile.gif



Dang it!! I missed the deadline!! I really wanted to participate. oh well.
