    Song a Week Season2: Week 3

    Week 3, remember, no eliminations, everyone welcome to join in!

    Scores after week 2 are as Follows:

    Iron1: 20 points
    Nick: 20 Points
    7 Dying Trees: 20 points
    Markus: 20 points
    Connor : 10 points
    Rev Drucifer: 10 points
    Blankplank: 10 points

    The rest of MG.org: a regretful and sorrowful non participant 0 points

    Instead of eliminations, we will work like thus:

    We'll attempt to submit one song a week.

    - The first scores you 10 points.
    - The second in a week scores you 5 points
    - The third, 2 points
    - The fourth 1 point, and 1 point for every further song.

    If you miss a week, you score 0 points, but, it allows everyone to keep playing until the end. It means people falling ill or ending up with heavy workloads don't get eliminated due to bad luck, and it also means people can start and join in whenever, and play a bit of catch up if they want. 10 points is an incentive to submit weekly, but if something happens, and it's late, you can still play a little catch up.

    We'll keep a rolling tally all the way through to week 8, at which point someone will be rewarded with the coveted season 2 crown(*)

    Rules:
    1) All Submissions by end of play 26th of April
    2) Even if noone can check, the spirit is writing a song a week
    3) No rules on genre, you don't even need to do the same style next week
    4) Must be a song, unless you have a very (and I mean the kind that is beyond the ability of mere mortals) good argument for playing the same riff for 3+ minutes it won't fly
    5) Entries composed on a tascam or without drums, whatever, also welcome, this is about writing a song, not dressing it up in lipstick and a short skirt
    6) If you don't submit, you're don't score points.
    7) Remember that quality outstrips quantity, don't just post up tons of rubbish to try and win, we're doing this to get writing, someone winning the coveted season 2 crown is a bonus(*)
    8) Mixtests don't count, there's another forum for that (ss.org)
    9) Submissions to be posted as soundcloud links

    We will not:
    1) Make people feel bad about mixing skills by turning this into a mixtest competition, it's about getting a load of us writing to a deadline, this is about writing, not about how awesome your headless kiesel sounds through an axe fx with superior drummer
    2) Make people feel bad about how well it's recorded
    3) Spam thread with songs we've had lying around for ages or anything non relevant to this competition and it's rules
    4) Discourage anyone from participating
    5) Tell anyone they suck. Songwriting is a skill, you learn it, some people will be better, others worse, this isn't a pissing competition
    6) Steal others work or ideas.

    Lastly, when commenting on other peoples work:


    (*) crown may not be real and instead be made of internet kudos

    Was last week a record number of entries? Either way, it was really cool to see/hear so many new songs. Keep 'em coming!

    Just like someone mentioned last week, this song started out all inspired and when the inspiration faded, it hopped aboard the struggle bus... oh well, another entry I guess...

    Think I have something. Not sure i can be bothered to polish it and make it tight, but will benefit from some kind of leads or harmonies, so will go off and bodge that on. At least the stress of having nothing has eased now!
