But how about MP3 response to the lick?
No tab,just take. wink.gif
I mean if you can tab it,you can probably play it.

I don't agree. I can tab out things way harder than I can play. I have a good ear I'm just not good at playing the stuff biggrin.gif

Well i must admit im the opposite- i can figure out licks and tab them- but i cannot for the life of me transcribe rhthyms (anything that is different to a whole bar of the same thing- like a while bar of 16th notes or 16th note triplets is fine- but any bluesy licks with funny timing im useless sad.gif )

so power/guitar pro tab or what? In ASCII u won't be able to tab out correct freakin rythms wink.gif
I like the audio-reponse idea more:-P
for prices, I would stay by pre-amps / effectpedals, there are also cheper solutions than POD (Behringer f.e.)

cheers

Best explanation on a piece of music, I'll explain.
The GMC senior pick a piece of classic music and post it, then we should describe it. The one who makes the best description of his feelings wins the price!

I would stick to original licks. smile.gif

as for a competition suggestion, you can put a backing track and tell everybody to add a lead guitar on it ( we can also add the key of the track so as even beginner can participate)
then member can vote for each others, leave comments and notes

and for rewards, instead of rewarding only the winner (wich is unfair, cause like this it will always be the same, specially if muris participate in the competition tongue.gif) you pick a name randomly and he wins
We can win the brand bew Pod X3, and pod X3 Live or even the Spider Valve HD 100
smile.gif
you can also create competitions without any rewards, just so we can hear what others do, and have some cyber guitar friends smile.gif

What about songwriting competition? People could gang up in teams/or we could use virtual bands that already are and make it a team contest.. we could have several categories like.. most tricky solo, best lyrics, most headbanging riff... etc etc.. I can think it more if you will agree, its a good idea:)

Yes yes yes!!!!

2 catigorys would be fine.

This could end up being a furious competition..

Honestly.. Why don't you do prizes with a set *Spending Limit* guitar related of course..... That way the person will really get something they want instead of something they won and don't use very much.

Somthing like

Winner - $75-100
Runner up- $25-50

That way everyone is happy.. ya'kno?

Is that because you happen to be a big KISS fan? tongue.gif

And I also think that prize is a bit expensive. smile.gif
