But when participating in both categories, you would still have bigger chance to win than someone, who has the webcam already and thus sending only video's.

The bad logic, that I see is, that if you post one video lick, you have better chance to win, than if you post two videos, because of your videos, stealing your votes tongue.gif

Thats all of me, I wont destroy your day more by my whinning biggrin.gif I know, I am hopeless biggrin.gif

Great idea for a comp. smile.gif

Just a question will there be any feedback from the judges on the content and quality of the lick even if the lick don't win for future reference?

I do have a lick in mind or is it a riff, (does it matter?)....I'll have to post it and see.

It will be in audio tho cause I've no video camera sad.gif, unless I do it a a series of stills and do a flick book...hey a flick lick book ...it could catch on wink.gif

Yes, we will definitely give feedback, thats a great idea.

Jakub, thanks for your input - I guess my view is that your chances of winning are influenced more by the quality of your lick than the amount of times you enter.

Oh.. the most important question I forgotten biggrin.gif (silly me...)

This will be voted by members or instructors(better idea IMO - I can explain, why I think this, if you want:D)? smile.gif


EDIT - added few words:)

I was planning members, but we could look at alternatives - why don't you go ahead and explain why you think instructors would be better smile.gif

With pleasure smile.gif

I would like to compare this contest to t-shirts desing contest:)

First of all, "Lick of the day", in my opinion, is much more important for getting new members - I doubt, that i will attaract more than a few with t-shirt biggrin.gif On the other hand, the Lick of the day is one of most important free parts of GMC - I am sure, that lots of todays members (me included smile.gif ) came here day to day to check out the "Lick of the day". And one day, they told themselves... "Man... look at that HUGE lesson archive with HUGE number of licks of the day... now that would be something! smile.gif". Due to this, I would choose the more experienced to decide on quality, cleanliness and supported materials (scale, theory and some text) and to place their votes. I myself, after half a year of playing, dont feel competent to compare licks of 5 years and longer playing guitarists biggrin.gif

Second reason is, that I believe, that instructors (and we can surely include seniors, admins etc..) can stay more objective when judging - I can imagine a situation of me, writing to my buddies here on GMC to put a few votes for my lick biggrin.gif biggrin.gif (I wont do it of course wink.gif ) And even without sending PM's.. some members might just vote based on their personal feelings - say he doesnt like blues, there will be blues lick (better) and metal lick (worse) and he will vote for that metal, just because he doesnt like blues.

To summarize it, I am fully convinced, that Instructors, as much more experienced players, than most of us, members, can better decide quality of playing and can stay objective smile.gif

EDIT: With regards,

Jakub "phoenix" Luptovec

Don't worry buddy! Your sweeps will develop really soon and you won't believe how good you can sweep eventually smile.gif
This is a competition for members, not instructors so i just had a little joke there wink.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
Keep sweeping man - it really is an awesome feeling when you get it clean and fast smile.gif

Nah don't worry m8! I will arrange it with drums and orchestra for you so your 8th notes will sound 4 times as fast supported by the double-bass drum! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
