    Song a week challenge

    I heard a story about a bunch of famous pop guys doing this, and as someone with a congenital inability to stick to self-imposed deadlines, a little peer pressure sounds like it might be helpful.

    The rules are:

    -You submit a song (written that week) by an agreed upon deadline each week.

    -If you don't submit anything, you're eliminated

    -last person standing wins

    Really, the deadline is the most important part, so the rules can be pretty flexible. Anyone else interested?

    Yes!

    I've been REALLY slacking in the studio and can use something exactly like this to help push through the lack of enthusiasm/drive I've had for it.

    I will give this a try

    HOWEVER since I'm only away a few hours per day on a 2nd hand store, and others may have full time jobs, that's a bit unfair advantage in my opinion.
    So let me have "special rule": One song per week, but once every month I need to submit an extra song more than others.


    However, what requirements for the songs? Do they need vocals, or are instrumentals okay? I understand you are allowed to make how advanced songs you want, but what about a 1:30 minute long punk song?
    What about the production/sound... Are full fletched productions preferred or would a 1-guitar track to programmed drum loop be allowed?

    I just wonder what bar we set for the challenge.

    I'll take a swing at this. Probably strike out, but it'll be fun regardless.

    Sounds fun but some of us know about a billion songs, does it exclude songs you already know? It almost has to, then the honor system is in effect I guess?

    You have to write it that week.

    Is this meant to be full band style?
