There's always one isn't there!
Ha ha

Go for it


A little 70s style prog-rock yodelling will be fine.

 :)

Strange that's what my mother and teachers said.

Not sure prog rock yodelling was what I had in mind though :)

Hi Close,
Not sure I will enter or not. But I think you need to clarify the vocals issue. For instance:
Has to be a forum member. - Does that mean a great singer could sign up and then contribute on a collab?
If I am the poster, will anyone I work with be able to sing lead? Or am I lead only and they are backing vocals?

Hate to make it complicated but your not saying:
Vocals are ok in any way shape or form... - Thus it seems kind of "picky"?

Thanks and it is good to finally open this up to collaborations.

My understanding of the rules, as clarified by close2u to my question, is the entry must be an instrumental. A few groans, screams and the occasional na na na ing of the melody is acceptable but singing Away in a Manger without using any of the words isn't.

I'm sure close2u will be along soon to provide the definitive answer.

I'd better start practicing.

Ah... but 70K thumbs up!  :D
I've seen Focus twice live and Mr. Thijs van Leer is still as mad and energetic as four decades ago.
Go see them if you get the chance  :)

Evening all. So I've seen Justin's email and it's scuppered my plans. I was planning to get my girlfriend to join the forum but I see she had to have been a member by 1st October. Nuts. So I'm back on the market. I can sort of sing and I play guitar but I've only been going just shy of two years. I've not got any recording equipment apart from a phone and no DAW hence why I was going to work with my girlfriend. I'm not sure how a distance collaboration would work but I'm open to suggestions. Or maybe there's a forum member in Leicestershire that wants to do something.

Only one of you has to be registered before October 1st. So you two can still join competition.

But if you want to do another collab, I am up for it. Phone recordings are fine as well :).

I haven't got the newsletter yet so haven't seen Justin's exact words.

Could someone please quote it here.

Thanks

"Rules are - at least 2 members of the forum for each entry (max 5), one of which must have been a member before Oct 1st (so if you're new you need to make some friends real fast!). Must be somehow related to Christmas, a carol, or pop hit or something. Not more than 3 minutes long (makes it hard to judge) and closing date is December 18."

Richard, here is what you wrote:

"ANNOUNCEMENT for OCT-NOV-DEC

For the final competition period of 2018 the competition is opened out in the following way:

For the first time the competition is not limited to single-person entries.
In fact the opposite.
We are looking for instrumental only recordings (no vocals required) that must be collaborations between two or more forum members.

Please record a tune / melody / song that is seasonal / festive and submit before the closing deadline of Sunday 16th December.

Entries must be a festive / seasonal / Christmas tune recorded as a collaboration between two or more forum members

And watch out for an announcement on some slightly different, cool and fab prizes. ;)"

Looks like what we have here is a failure to communicate. Haha.

Justin didn't mention that it has to be an instrumental, and you didn't mention the 3 minute limit. Have I got that right?

Lynn

Hot diggity dog

Instrumental ... definitely ... no getting around the fact that Justin seems to have omitted that essential info

Forum members ... you can easily ask any one that isn't to sign up

3 minutes ... easy :- miss out a verse or two


Just call me Mr Fixit ha ha

Behind the scenes discussions going on in light of the Newsletter having gone out …

There may be a new, slightly amended announcement soon.

It most certainly will not rule anything out.

It may rule something new in.
