Welcome to the fourth Fretboard Cover Challenge. The rules are simple - there are no rules*.
We all start with the same song suggestion and record our own cover version. It's up to your imagination as to what you do with it. It could be faithful to the original or as out there as you wish.
The idea is to share creativity and see how we end up with differing results from the exact same start point. Feel free to change key if needed for vocals. Feel free to go instrumental/spoken word/rap if singing isn't your thing. Feel free to share ideas in this thread or keep your hand close to your chest. Just have fun with it.
The track to be covered has been chosen by the winner of the last challenge @markv and is...
THE EARTH DIES SCREAMING by UB40
Yes. That's what has been chosen. Now get those creative juices flowing and see what you can come up with.
Entries to be sent in mp3 format to the following Email address:
You may wish to submit artwork to go with your entry. It brightens up the playlist and might get you more votes but it's not mandatory.
Entries close at 11.30pm on Thursday 28th February. Yes. It's that time of the year so it means a few days less than normal but still plenty of time.
Only one entry per participant.
A playlist of all the entries will be posted in the Voting Thread and you will have approximately one week to vote. Vote for your top 3 with 5 points awarded for first place, 3 points for second place and 1 point for third place. Entrants obviously aren't allowed to vote for their own entry.
Unlike other challenges in the Cover Challenge the winner wins a prize - they get to choose the track to be covered for the next challenge. Please have ideas ready in advance as you will only have approximately 48hrs to PM your suggestion or The Management will decide for you.
