Just a quick question. I don´t understand this point:


Hehe, it was meant as a joke smile.gif
It's just that it should be a whole song, not just Intro and verse, as wrk mentioned smile.gif

And Kaznie; As Skennington mentioned, unplugged arrangements are allowed as well wink.gif
Just do your best, that's more than good enough smile.gif

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

Hey, audiopaal. Just one question, since it I did not find anywhere else in the thread.

This is only about instrumental songs or vocals are allowed? I am asking that because vocals make alll the difference in the world. Even this being a guitarist website, I bet that a song with good vocals would get more votes on the songwriting part...

So is it just instrumental as in guitar idol? I think that would be the most fair for this competition.

Hmmm... Have to disagree there mate! Not everyone on this site has a fantastic technique but some may have good songwriting skills and vocals, if the comp was purely instrumental all the focus would be on technique, which is mostly what GI is about I guess but this way its all about the composition of the whole, not just the guitar. smile.gif

Yep, looking from that point of view you are right. I was thinking because of
QUOTE (audiopaal @ Jun 18 2009, 12:41 AM) *
You should make your own recording, much like the Guitar Idol competition, and show us your skills.

that it was very guitar (and technique) oriented, like guitar idol.

But it's fine to have a competition based on songwriting overall.

@Kaznie

There are plenty of free programs out there that can help you make a backing track - maybe this is a reason to look at some of them? You have a month - that's three weeks of tinkering then 1 week to write and record the song wink.gif

Check out the recording forum and take a look at Reaper - that is free to try out, and with a few free VSTs you could get far!

Even so, the unplugged idea is absolutely killer - and this competition is NOT just about technique - its about the whole package. A solefull vocal over an acoustic guitar could be much more compelling than 10,000mph shredding - although the shredding could be cool too if done in support of the overall song!

You should join in! Make a simple bass line using VST's, place roots of the chords on every bass drum beat and you already got a main groove going on! smile.gif
