Dear GMC Members,

It gives me great pleasure to announce ...



The GMC T-Shirt Designing Contest!



Yes, that's right, Kris has decided that we all need t-shirts because he was appalled at the dress sense he saw in the "what do you look like" thread smile.gif

I'm joking of course, its obvious that a place as awesome as GMC just has to have a T-Shirt, and the winning entries will receive a prize - see below!

Here's how it will work:

We will be creating 2 different designs:

1. Member design - this can be wild, weird, fun, freaky, the choice is yours since its your t-shirt. The regular members t-shirt will have a variation for GMC Seniors, it should be a similar or identical design, but with the word "Senior" on the design somewhere. This design needs to have "guitarmasterclass.net" somewhere on it.

2. Instructor design - this needs to be professional looking and not too wild and wacky - instructors will be representing GMC with this so it needs to be smart an businesslike and to the point. It needs to have "guitarmasterclass.net" clearly visible on the top. We will produce this in different colors so that not all of the instructors look like identical twins!

If you want to use the current logo: logo.psd

I will start a thread for nominations for each t-shirt - uploads only to those threads, comments and questions to this thread please.

There will be a time limit of a week on Monday to get your ideas uploaded (that gives 2 full weekends) - let me know if you don't think that is enough time.

Once we have all the nominations, we will enter the voting/judging process.

1. For the member t-shirt, we will have a thread with a poll which we will run for a week. At the end of that, the top 5 designs will go forward for finally judging by a panel of our very own GMC Seniors (lets get them working for their privileged position!)

2. The Instructor T Shirt will be judged totally by none other than our very own Kristofer Dahl

When we have the designs, we will make them available to GMC members for purchase so you can all have the privilege of wearing a GMC t shirt - vital for spotting other GMCers at gigs and in guitar stores!

And finally, I saved the best bit till last .... in addition to the bragging rights of saying you designed GMC's T shirt (which is not to be underestimated), we will be giving away, to the winner of each category ...



One last thing ... all artwork must be original - nothing copied from anywhere else!

This is the best idea ever.

So, we just draw something on a paper or do we use photoshop etc. ? Or is it our own choice how do it?

Its your choice how you design it, but it has to end up as a graphics file so you can upload it - if you draw something you need to be able to scan it that's all.

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

Aaah... that's a great idea! I'm getting right on it wink.gif

But there might be a problem since you may have posted this in the forum and not as a PM. No worries though, I think we can fool them some way. cool.gif

Nah MickeM - Andrew posting it in the forum was the right place. That way all the members KNOW that they have to offer us bribes and so will hopefully start outbidding each other cool.gif .

Now me I'm open for the following 'gifts' (sounds better then bribe tongue.gif ):

A Nieve Compresser

A Neumann U80 mic

A 128 Channel SSL or Audient mixing console

An early 1950's Gibson Les Paul custom in immaculate condition

biggrin.gif

Cheers,
Tony

My photoshopping sucks and so does my droawing stick people....

This is going to be hard (ill still try though).

Now heres a photoshop question:

How do you get the lasso tool to cut propely with a mouse. I get these edges and stuff cause my hand shakes around curved surafes.
