Ok, guys,

Here is the first competition. Your assignment should you choose to accept it is to invent a new lick of the day, and Video it for us all to learn. You must abide by the following rules:

1. The total video must be no longer than 30 seconds (this is a guide not an absolute rule - 35 seconds will be ok, 40 seconds is too long)
2. You must play the lick once at full speed, and then again at slow speed to illustrate the technique

Judging will be by Forum Poll with the head competition moderator (me!) having casting votes if necessary.

Criteria to be considered for judging will be:

1. Coolness of lick
2. Standard of playing
3. Standard of slow illustration
4. Clarity of video
5. Quality of supporting materals (Tabs, Scales, Explanation)

There will be a separate category for people who can't record video - audio only entries will be judged against each other. The same rules will apply, but obviously the licks won't be judged on video quality!

One important point to note is that a simple lick played perfectly is more valuable than a complex lick played badly - imagine this on the front page of GMC, we want quality and simplicity not ultimate flashiness!

You have until the 23rd of February to submit your licks - there will be a separate thread just for licks - use this thread for questions and comments about the competition in general or the merits of specific entries smile.gif

Voting will start on the 23rd, winners will be announced on the last day of the month.

Since we have 2 categories, there will be 2 main prizes.

For the audio category, first prize will be:

A Creative LiveCam Voice!

Armed with this, you will be able to make a video entry for the next competition!

For the Video Category, the prize is:

A Boss MT2 MetalZone Distortion Pedal

Attached Image

Also, the runner up in each category will get:

3 Sets of Ernie Ball Guitar Strings!

Attached Image


In order to make these licks as high quality as possible, I strongly recommend that you supply a tab, scales and explanatory text as appropriate - in every way these licks should rival those prepared by our founder and inspiration Kris! We will make backup material part of the judging criteria.

So what are you waiting for????

This is cool.

Do we provide tabs and explanation with the video or does the winner do that when the comp is over?

Can one have mutiple entries?
Example: I post 3 'Lick of the Day' vids, Robin posts 2, skennington 1, etc.

(I took Robin and skennington as example 'cause they already posted here)

Oh, and how about the background of the vid? Does it have to be a single coloured wall?
In other words: is it a problem if there's a bed/closet/... in the background?

Good question - we'll limit it to 2 per person.

That's up to you - but think about how others will view it during the voting smile.gif

No backing track required or indeed allowed, no minimum time limit.

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Can I post more licks?biggrin.gif I have few ideas and cant decide on what one to choose:D (sorry I somehow skipped that post:D thoutgh I read this thread 2 times up and down completely:D life is strange:D )

Btw. I want to record audio via mic, but video will be recorded on camera... Is there a possibility ty complete it in Cubase? Or do I have to fix sound in Cubase and then merge it in Win Movie maker?

And can I talk when showing it in slow motion? Like notes and tips on how to nail it etc..
