Jemsite Guitar Challenge June '15 - OFFICIAL THREAD

Welcome everybody!
Big thanks to those who entered last time!


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 March, 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 a rock track in D Mixolydian, this month we are doing a rock ballad in A Dorian. 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 May.



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!

Really enjoying this track! Can't wait to come up with something concrete and also hear what others do with it!

Re: Jemsite Guitar Challenge June '15 - OFFICIAL THREAD

as usual, I didn't listen to any of the other entries before doing mine...

I like the approach (almost jazz) from GoodVaibes

Thanks guys! Your kind comments are encouraging for me to practice more. All of you have so far shredded me out into the street and down the road! Greece, England, Scotland & France - looks like it'll be a European challenge... so far...

Re: Jemsite Guitar Challenge June '15 - OFFICIAL THREAD

Some great entries so far! So much variance and different sounds/styles.

I try not to listen to any until I have at least played over it and established an "idea" or "feel"... and that seems to be enough to steer me down my own path when I finally try to record something. The pressure is on for the Western hemisphere!!! lol... I better get busy! (also have my hands full with a difficult guitar lesson homework assignment that involves writing/recording a song too)

I haven't forgotten about this one... Waiting until I've done mine before I listen to others, but I'm pretty excited to hear what folks came up with!

Ugh... Well, Soundcloud rejected my entry, so I bumbled around and took a video of me improvising (or trying to) over the track, and recorded it on Reaper too. Unfortunately, Windows Movie Maker does not support MPEG4 format!

Anyone know of a free video editing program/software?

I dunno about other video editing, I'd probably avoid that route if only for the reason that learning to use it might be a pain in the backside. Couldn't you just convert the file type? Is it just the audio? If so, LAME front end is free conversion to mp3, or just use iTunes or whatever.

I've got the audio converted to mp3... but would like to add it to the video, which is in MPEG4 format. The camera audio itself doesn;t sound good at all. I still have a day and a half to figure it out.
