Here's a fun little thing for us to do.

I am picking one (1) song from lots of different e6 or e6 affiliated albums. Then I am throwing them all in a hat. There will be about 30 to pick from lets say. If you'd like in on this just say so. I will then pick from the hat and assign you a song. Hopefully a lot of the people get songs they don't know or at least don't know how to play.

You have a week (until lets say next Tues) to learn to play the song... however you'd like. Then you must video tape yourself playing it and put it up on google, youtube, vimeo whatever. And we all share.

So let this thread know and I will assign all songs on Wed.

Cool

Yeah a couple of things... plex make it video... audio can be terribly boring especially if someone doesn't know the song. You also can't see anything you're using, your technique, etc. Also unzipping and all that crap can be a burden on some people. Just find a digital camera or something dude.

Ok and yeah I am not usuing any real wacky songs or anything too over the top....


songs will be assigned wed.

Fine new thread for the drawing ah... I actually physically can't record it... not until the weekend. I will wait if you want. I won't cheat though. I was actually about to do it right now. and yeah you can be in... i have more than 18. They are all ripped up and ready to go. They aren't bad really. I tried to make them easy or at least somewhat easy. I left out OTC, Marshmallow Coast/M Coast and some of the real experimental noise bands for those reasons... I threw in some circulatory system, beulah, etc. and figured that was torture enough for whoever got one of them.


I am going to go ahead and draw. If you really want me to wait and think I am cheating I will, but I'm not.

I think you should have left OTC in, at least their non-experimental songs. Actually I think the experimental songs would have made for an interesting video, and people could probably swap. But maybe next time.

Abel
07-23-2009, 11:53 AM
I mean, I think I'm displeased with the general lack of variety among the artists. There are so many repeats. There are more E6 bands than that. But I guess I won't complain all day (or will I?).

great work manThanks, I wasn't expecting a nice compliment like this. The song has a lot of different parts and I did mess up the chords a couple times. I was thinking of doing something more interesting with the video than just a front-shot of me playing though. But at least I have some ideas for next round.
