So, I randomly remembered the "Master Of Puppets" cover contest we did on SS.org a while back, and how much fun that was, and thought: maybe it's time to do something like that again (but not on SS.org)
For those not in the know:
Metallica Cover Contest Part 1 - choosing the album - Sevenstring.org
Metallica Cover Contest Part 2 - choosing the song - Sevenstring.org
Metallica Cover Contest - Master of Puppets - begins! - Sevenstring.org
Metallica Cover Contest - Its over! Submissions Inside - Sevenstring.org
We basically voted on a song, and then had a set period of time to record and post a cover of it. As you can see, the results were pretty varied and interesting.
So, my thoughts on how it might work well this time would be:
-pick a band (maybe nominate/vote like the GOTM? Trying to restrict it to more well-known bands/songs)
-pick a song from said band (see above)
-set a deadline and a thread to collect all the submissions
Am I crazy, or is anyone else interested in giving this another go?
No real prizes or anything, just like last time, just to have some fun and see what people on here can do
I'm down, as long as it such a shit song this time round No Megadeth please
