  • How about Zappa plays the Bay City Rollers? but then there's copyright issues. Everything i think up has copyright issues....... except perhaps Christmas hymns, but that was last months challenge.

    @DeeplyDazzled   Fancy meeting you here!  Good to see you around, Paul.  :)


    I know @DeeplyDazzled ; from SoundCloud and have done a few collaborations with him - I think you'll all enjoy his contributions.

    I received an entry in the early hours of this morning form someone called Paul (I won't give your full name on the forum). Am I correct in guessing that it's from you @DeeplyDazzled ?

    Oops: I should point out that you have the right to remain anonymous. Email me if that's the case.


    btw. you get a point if you also submit a picture, but it's entirely your choice.

    See extract below from the first post in the thread.

    "Picture: In addition to the music, try to create your own picture that relates to your interpretation of the theme. This isn't mandatory but, as a small incentive, those that provide a picture will be awarded a free point to add to their voting score. Note the picture can be anything from a hand drawn sketch, photo, photo edit or something generated in a graphics package"


    You may ask, why do we have a picture? Here's my somewhat dodgy reasoning

    1) It adds to the fun
    2) Tradition: Antique_guitars, who previously ran this challenge, asked for a picture to accompany the music
    3) It's nice to package the music with some form of artwork. I remember album sleeves from my youth, which were part of the experience. Even modern digital music is packaged with some sort of artwork.
    4) I like making pictures.

    It's not a competition.

    Good I've got two so far.

    Remember, the submission deadline is Midnight 28 February 2018 and I'll post the entries for voting shortly after that.

    When you send them, please include your forum name in the email, as I don't possess psychic powers :)
    Having said that, I've manage to figure out who sent today's entry. 

    It's not a competition.

    ...Teutonic Metal....?
    Never heard that in my life. That I’m aware of. Heard plenty of Pentatonic Metal in my time.

    I thought The Specials and The Selecter were Teutonic

    And if there's anything good about me, I'm the only one who knows

    OK, I've submitted something ... I only had a couple of hours today so it had to be a cover, just a f***ed up cover ...if it breaks the rules, no worries, don't include me this month and I'll do something proper for the next run once my panto duties are over!

    I'm not sure there are any rules really and, it's so different, I'd definitely consider it original work. Let the voters decide.

    Thanks to the three that have entered so far.

    The submission deadline is Midnight 28 February 2018, so there's still nearly two months to go. I'll post the entries for voting shortly after the deadline.

    Let me know if I've missed anyone.

    As a reminder, the submission deadline is Midnight 28 February 2018. Voting will start soon after the deadline.

    I'll hopefully give this a bump by submitting early next month.

  • I thought the deadline was today, not next month, so I have a track finished. That’ll teach me.

    @mistercharlie Just checking. I haven't received your track. Are you still waiting to send it?

    The old style: a classic 1943 Broadway musical 

    The new take: what if Rogers & Hammerstein were actually the Neue Deutsche Härte band - HammRstein 

    Sorry if everyone else has done the same thing.

    Bugger .. I was doing Hammstein's famous Der Klang von Musik as a Bavarian trance dub accordion metal tune with manic yodelling and Julie Andrew's samples.

    Back to the drawing board ....

    Sorry. Such a cliché. I did leave out the didgeridoo solo and Mongolian throat singing because it's so overdone.

    Next time I'll do a slow blues in A to be original.

    I should be on time if Gilmore pulls his finger out for the guitar solo.

  • I don't think I'll be getting an entry in this time (the first one I've missed I think?)

    You may remember me saying I've been playing guitar less and less over the last year or so, to the extent that my chops were getting really rusty...... and then I get asked to dep for a band! (friends of mine, playing original material) I haven't played a gig for ten years or more so I've been using every spare guitar-playing moment learning to play again, learning a set of 11 original tunes (as the sole guitarist) and generally trying to get 'gig fit'.

    So I haven't really had the time to come up with anything for this challenge. I'll still be listening and voting though. 7 entries is a good turnout.

    That's a pity because I always look forwards to hearing your original take on things. But I fully understand about having to prioritise.
