Guitar Master Competition!

It's time for a new competition again, finally smile.gif
This time we're going to have some fun and you, the gmc members, will be able to win some fabulous prizes.

Enucleation had a good idea a while ago for a competition.
So I "stole" his idea tongue.gif

You should make your own recording, much like the Guitar Idol competition, and show us your skills.
Record your own song, with full backing and post it in the uploads thread.
Video is not necessary, but will certainly look better smile.gif
I choose not to have video as a criteria to join, as more members will be able to participate that way.

The recordings must be original compositions, NO covers!


Let's start with the best part of the competition, the prizes:


1st prize: VOX TONELAB ST (Multieffect)

Attached Image

2nd prize: BOSS DS-1

Attached Image

3rd prize: ELECTRO HARMONIX LPB-1

Attached Image

How about those prizes? biggrin.gif


In the 4 weeks the competition lasts you'll have to make/record a full song with backing.
Drums, Bass, Rhythm Guitar, Solo Guitar and other instruments if you feel the backing needs it smile.gif
No video necessary, but a cool touch if you choose to make one smile.gif
This competition will be decided by an open poll, so all GMC members can vote.
So the better the quality of the recording, playing and composition, the better are your chances!


Voting will consist of three choices:
  • Best song/composition (songwriting)
  • Best technique/playing
  • Best recording/mix

We will start a thread for people who want to enter - you should post your recordings there!
If some of you make videos as well, post these on youtube and embed the video in the upload thread!
If you don't have a Youtube account... ... ...create one wink.gif

Rules:

1. The recording MUST be an original composition!
2. All contestants must have a recording/video uploaded within the length of the competition.
3. Recordings should be as long as the song. If it's shorter it will sound unfinished tongue.gif
4. Final winners will be chosen by an open GMC poll.
5. All entries must be finished by July 27th, voting will be for one week after that date.
6. No Cash or alternative prizes will be offered!
7. In the event of a tie, a tiebreaker activity will be employed to break the deadlock.

Does this have to be a full song? I mean 3-5 mins ? Can it be a short clip such as a min or two? Doing all that recording/arranging and composing sounds a bit challenging. smile.gif

You're too funky for this competition I'm afraid..
The other contestants would be shaking their hips right out of this competition listening to your licks biggrin.gif

Maybe the next one wink.gif

Well...
Anything is possible. Just keep in mind that the members who will be voting for the winner,
will look for songwriting skills as well, not just how well you play.
And how good the final upload sounds, mix etc. smile.gif

A good example of a song between 1 - 2 minutes is; Emir Hot - GMC - Rock ballad style improvisation

But it'll have to be very good if it's gonna get the same attention as longer,
and more "song-structured" compositions in my opinion smile.gif

But that's the beauty of this competition, you can do it the way you want!
Just do it well!

Well, it's a competition for the members of GMC basically, and not the instructors.
This competition will also help them in trying to develop their songwriting skills.

About the rules for this competition, you need to talk to me smile.gif

I've been meaning to ask Kristofer about a competition for the instructors as well,
as that would be great for you, the instructors, to have some competition-fun as well and maybe win some prizes smile.gif
You deserve it, no doubt about that.

How about it Kris? I've got a few ideas as well smile.gif

Thank you Kris biggrin.gif
Yeah, I figured these prizes would be appreciated smile.gif
And glad you like the competition!!

Yeah, good idea by Enucleation as well.
I had to modify it a bit though, but I think it turned out great smile.gif

Wooow, great idea for competition (and über prizes though I don`t like the DS-1 tongue.gif )

Too bad I lack equipment.... the only thing I have to record anything BUT guitar is fruity loops...

Will the quality of the backing have much to say? For instance backings made by EZ drummer vs. backings made by FL?

Actually I had never thought about that - but this is a killer idea! Any ideas what the competition would be about?
