Hey, fellow bots -
So I\'ve decide to throw another contest. This one is much easier than the last one...
All ya gotta do is shred, improv or write a solo to any buckethead track, praxis track, thanatopsis track or one of your own. The shred session needs to be atleast 2 mins long(after that it can end whenever) and NEEDS to reflect buckethead\'s style. It can start off slow and then go crazy or crazy then slow or just crazy. Pretty simple. It needs to be a actual video of you playing, no recorded tracks behind pictures. We need to see the shred in motion. A YouTube video aswell.
This contest is limited to 6 people including myself because first place is gonna be 2 CDs or a shirt of your choice from the tdrs store. I was gonna buy myself 2 CDs (I already have all the shirts) but decided to use my purchase as a prize for myself or another contestant.
First 5 people to post "I\'m in" are the contestants. Contest will start in 1 week from today (next Saturday) and will end the following Tuesday in the evening.
In this one anyone will be able to vote. Feel free to post your thoughts to this thread.
^^^ sweet! I did change the rules slightly after you posted. Check it out and make sure you\'re cool with it.
Ok, got it.
anybody got a camera I can borrow?
I\'m in. ;D
Hopefully my bot\'s camera is decent
I just need to know when this will be due..
Nvm lol I reread the post
We CAN use backing tracks correct??
Alright, we have a contest!
Screw it, one more contestant is welcome. Let\'s make it 7.
can we use a video that weve made before? and use that for the contest entry or does it have to be something entirely fresh??
I would prefer if y\'all made something new, it would make the contest a little better, IMHO.
I think I have a pretty good idea of what mines gonna be based off of. ;D
Ok we got 7, awesome! I would prefer if we all made a new video and not an old one. That\'s part of the fun of these contests. So please try and make a new video and not use an old one!
^ Thank you this awesome contest Bucketdog!
Got it bucketdog! Thanks.
So to clarify one more time.. Backing tracks are ok??
^^^ yeah, any backtrack from buckethead, praxis, thanatopsis or yourself. You can shred with a guitar, bass, mandolin, piano, chicken, human parts or whatever makes you horny... Just have fun guys!
Videos need to be posted in a week. I\'ll set up a thread when the time comes. Peace.
Attention shred contest contestants:
I have injured my wrist. I was at the bar tonight and I got into a fight and hit some dude that was being stupid in the jaw really hard and really fucked up my left wrist and his face. That\'s about all of the details I\'m gonna disclose...
Anyway. I want to postpone the official contest till Monday or Tuesday because I was gonna record my video tomorrow morning. Is everyone cool with that?
Mm im fine with that.. Itll give me more time to construct and figure out what my final product will be..
Thank you! I may be unable to upload my video today.
come on guy, I cut my fretting hand nub open with a knife and I\'m still playing ;) Hope I can have a decent quality video up for this though :-/
^^ I can\'t bend my wrist, guy. I don\'t have to throw these contests... Stop cutting yourself. It\'s not a healthy habit.
^^^This is true, I\'m not trying to say I don\'t appreciate it because I do. btw, count me out on this contest now
^^^ you could also get a shirt if you win. It\'s not just limited to CDs.
Hows that wrist bdog?
^^^ Thank you for asking. I\'m in pain... However, I\'m gonna pop some hydrocodone and attempt to record something with-in the hour. if I fail to succeed in making a video the show must go-on. And I\'ll have to sit this one out. I\'ll post a official contest thread later tonight so we can get this rolling with or with-out me.

Damn that really sucks man.. Hope that gets better.. I would say that you should not do anything if your in pain.. It wouldnt help at all.. But it would be good to have more people..
