    MG.ORG song, cover and lead challenge season 1, week 2

    So, here we are, week 2 of the mg.org something for everyone challenge. Born out of some people liking doing covers, whilst others like writing songs, with a combination of a few people just not having enough time to do full songs (hence the lead a week). Do one, 2 or all 3. Also, it means I only have to track one of these per week.

    Last week we got a load of entries, so point totals are as follows:
    Markus: 20
    Iron1: 10
    7DT: 10
    Connor: 10
    scole: 10
    Rev Drucifer: 10

    Rules are simple, do 1-3 things every week, Post your creations in the weekly thread as soundcloud/youtube links. I'm aiming to get various contributions for backing tracks, each one will be credited to the author. As it's the first week I'm doing a dropbox download, but we should get some dedicated hosting or something like that courtesy of chris.

    The deadline for this week is end of play, Sunday 22nd March

    Short rules:
    - You have until sunday midnight/monday morning to post your submission
    - Either do an original song, a cover/medley or a lead over the provided backing track per week.
    - Submissions must be stuff you've done this week, no matter how awesome an old track/recording is
    - 10 points for each submission, per category.
    - submissions as souncloud or youtube links. Well, as long as it is playable from a post in the thread really.
    - You can do multiple entries per category, but only the first one will score points.
    - no eliminations, do your stuff as and when you can
    - leads can be layer, melodies, you can chop and rearrange the track, whatever floats your boat really
    - Don't be a dick to other people. You can go to ss.org for that.
    - Don't steal other peoples songs
    - Don't steal backing tracks or pass it off as your own, give credit where it's due if you want to share your awesome yngwie malmsteen unleash the fjokking fjury face melting solo.

    155 BPM - and there's both a mastered and unmastered version James put up in the drop box.

    If anyone wants me to drop their lead track in my DAW and mix/master it for them, just PM me. I love doing that kind of thing.

    love it. Had the exact same thought yesterday when the shelter in place announcements started.

    Another cover from me this week, let's see if I still manage to do something else as well.

    Was in the mood for some doom, so this is "Footprints" by Warning.
