;;;;; have given me the go ahead to launch the first official “theFB Mixing Challenge”.
At the start of June, 20+ guitarists of varying ability and confidence walked into a studio (most for the first time) and played a few songs.
Very few of these guys had even met before let alone played with each other and pretty much all of the songs played that day were, Walk into room, Plug in guitar and away we go! All the songs were done in "One Take” with no rehearsal.
So to promote a bit of “Cross Category” love on theFB I’ve chosen a track from the day (Fortunate Son) and will make the raw tracks available to whoever wants to join in.
This is about getting a good mix from what is available, so no "re-recording parts".
If you want to join the fun, send me a DM and I will provide you with a link to the raw tracks.
Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org as an mp3.
And completely stealing from @stratman3142
(sorry, Hope its ok?)
Voting will start soon after the submission deadline of 24th July 2018, with each voter selecting their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice.
First choice gets 5 points - Second choice gets 3 points - Third choice gets 1 point
Voting will end on 11.30pm 31st July 2018
The order and scores of the top three entries will be announced soon after the voting ends. If there are 8 or more entries, then the order and scores of those in the top half will be announced.
No prizes. It's just for fun.
As people submit their entries, I'll post them in a playlist below. Hopefully we can share tips and tricks on how the mix was achieved.
