GMC Ultimate Virtual Band Challenge
Can YOU make the cut?

To All,

I'm very pleased to introduce a new program here at GMC and if all goes well, we will for sure expand it.

Now, to explain in a bit more detail, the idea is to create a Live Virtual Band with all that involves a true live setting.

The band will be Instructor led by our very own Jose Mena. He will be looking for the best of the best and if chosen, he will require the utmost dedication on your part.

Please understand going in that only the best will be considered so be prepared to accept rejection as this is part of a live audition. So, will YOU make the cut?

Auditions will be held for guitar, keys, vocals and bass. Each will be judged by Jose and picked at his discretion.

He will have his own judging criteria and may even include some process of elimination, that will be up to him.

Once chosen, this is when the real work begins. Jose will be merciless at getting the quality he is looking for.

Just like being in a live studio, you will most likely be asked for multiple takes.

This band will be a real life experience for you with real life challenges and with real life standards, great training for becoming a sessions musician or for live auditions!

If all goes well with this band, as said, we WILL be creating more GMC Ultimate Bands in the future.

So, with that said, I will ask Jose to step in and get a little more in depth with regards to the program. Good luck and

I wish you all the best at "making the cut"!

Hello Everyone

I've been wanting to lead a GMC virtual band for some time now, I approached Steve and we came up with some ideas on how to make the virtual band something big.

We want this to be a feature on GMC, and this is why we are going to be very selective. However it doesn't mean you are required to be "Steve Vai" or "Allan Holdsworth", all are encouraged to apply.

I will be looking for

1. Good sense of rhythm timing
2. Good Guitar tone
3. Ability to produce excellent quality recordings

I think this could be a great learning experience for all of us, lets learn from each other, create music and have fun at the same time.

Of course not, all are encouraged to apply, many times we are the worse critics of ourselves.

Like said before Jesse, give it a shot.
