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.

Ah so I can rope in the missus. She'll be pleased she's been practising.....not enough. Better watch what i say if she's joining.

I did have another idea for a song when I thought I was collaborating. We can't enter two collaborations can we close?

At the end of my lesson with Justin, he popped out a "look forward to hearing you in the next Contest".  I said I was ineligible.  He said, well you can't win but you can participate.  But it being a collaboration complicates that "participating and not eligible to win" dynamic in my mind.

Richard, what's your take ... if somebody was looking for a collaborator and they were considering me (or vice versa) ... could they still be in contention while I am not?

I don't have anything specific in mind, just putting it out there ... same would go for other winners ... hmm, there's a thought ...

Pam/Max, did you have any thoughts/ideas?  Based on Justin's comment we could produce something and given we are all ineligible that being ion contention would be a non issue?

Oh holy mama … now you're asking the hard questions David !!!  :o :o :o :o :o ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

I will check with Justin.
I'm wondering if the rule book can be amended to accommodate previous winners this time due to the team nature of the collaboration.

Bear with me.

The answer came back yes.

You're good to go David. :)

At least 2 of the entrants must be forum members, one of whom must have been a member before October 1st.
Quick question, as I would not want to 'disgruntle' anyone:

I unexpectedly teamed up with Fourtwo (Neil) the other day to enter the competition. We have been in touch and I have written what I reckon is the bulk of the lyrics along with the structure (Yay me! 8)); he will be looking after the production end (as well as everything else I can't do)
I have a good friend who lives nearby and plays guitar (competently). In fact, he suggested this website to me when I started out. He is not a member of the forum.
I would very much like to ask him to co-write the music with with me (Lennon/McCartney ;)). I think I would learn a lot, but more importantly, it would be good fun.
Who knows, we might even gain a new member to the forum?

I would do the vocals and we would both 'play' guitar and send it off to Neil.

Is that within (the spirit of) the rules?

Cheers

@ Brian.
Both you and FourTwo have been members from before the cut off point.
All is good.
