How about a lead guitarist contest? Sound like something you are interested in? Here's how I was thinking this would work. I have finished adding all of the rhythm guitars for Aerosmith's Walk This way - now all it needs is a rippin ass lead player! So here we go:
A) Download and listen to the song.
B) If you think you can do the leads to this song AS THEY WERE WRITTEN BY AEROSMITH, then feel free to reply to this thread that you want to be a contestant. Contestants will be judged by their ability to emulate the sound and feel of the original leads.
C) The deadline for contest entry will be this coming Friday 02/04/05.
D) Spend the next week working on your chops, and then post your lead entry to this forum on or before Tuesday 02/08/05. (Post an mp3 of the lead parts only - I will mix it in to the track and post the result to the site.)
E) I will set up a poll that will allow everyone here to vote for the best player, and the results will be tallied on the following Friday 02/11/05 and the winner will be announced.
F) What will be the prize? I don't know! Maybe some one here has an item they would like to donate to the cause. Any ideas? Let me know.
(Hey Guitars101 - how about a free membership for the winner???? Wink - wink - nudge - nudge - say no more!)
Here is the tune that needs those leads! Keep in mind that I have already done the rhythms - all we need is some kick ass leads!!!
Walk This Way
Best of luck and I look forward to your entries!!!
