Jemsite Guitar Challenge February '15: OFFICIAL THREAD!

Welcome everybody!
Big thanks to those who entered last time!
[CENTER]

RULES

  • You may record yourself performing a specific track and submit it to Youtube. If it is an audio track you can post it to any leading music hosting sites, such as Soundcloud.
  • Submissions will be accepted from now until the last day of February, 2015. Depending on participation, the deadline may be extended.
  • There will be a special thread that will ONLY have submissions. >Click here!<
  • There will be a poll thread created at the end of the submission period. Then it starts all over again!
  • EVERYBODY is encouraged to participate and upload a submission!! No matter what your skill level is. We can vote for a "winner", but just putting yourself out there makes you a winner!!
  • Feedback on performances is permitted and encouraged. It's a good way for musicians to grow. Please keep it polite though. Nothing harsh, and no over-reactions.
  • This is a youtube video backing track. If you want to import the track into your DAW or other production software, you will need the audio from the video. You can convert the video easily to an Mp3 HERE. If you have any trouble downloading and converting to MP3, send me a PM with your email address and I can send it to you.



VISIT TRACK
>HERE!<


Last month was an upbeat rocker, this month we are doing a B.B. King style blues track in Bm. Great sounding track, very well done, and should be a lot of fun! Check it out, download it, and submit in the "Post Your Entries Here" for February.


One more important note. Don't not upload something because of your recording quality!!! We want to hear you, not have a super-polished Hi-Def music video.



We look forward to hearing you!

Re: Jemsite Guitar Challenge February '15: OFFICIAL THREAD!

It is really frustrating to have played two takes with the perfect tone and feel and realize that you were playing on an unmiced amp.

Still working through my new setup gremlins and and having a hard time getting a take or tone I like with the Flextone. Sounds great as an amp but does not record well yet.

Been there. I did two takes on mine - the first take was going great, until I heard a "click" - my camera battery died at about the minute and a half mark.

Had to laugh at that one. I have been recording a couple of times and laid down a great track... hitting everything perfectly and clean... only to discover that I clicked "play" instead of "record" in Reaper.

Glad we got a couple more entries in! Hope to see one from you, Satchmo... I don't see any problem waiting for yours.

In the meantime maybe I'll post a "feeler" thread for March. So be thinking about a good modal track, as promised to Kyle Am I and Satch_jr!

Re: Jemsite Guitar Challenge February '15: OFFICIAL THREAD!

It's funny, I don't usually f*ck up my recordings, but this time even I got beat by technology :S

Having completed a take, feeling somewhat satisfied with the audio (levels, tone etc), I picked up my phone only to realize that I had accidentally recorded with the Slow-Mo function...f*ckn iPhone and overly sensitive touchscreens

Slow mo? That might be kind of cool... lol!

I'll leave this one open for the weekend in case of a late entry... so unless I hear otherwise I'll try to close it up and do a poll Monday or so.
