The Cover Challenge #1: Nintendo 64 (VOTING TIME to the 29th June)

New activity test!
So let's give a try or two to a new concept on gametabs and see if people participate... or not! as it's new i'm going to explain all the rules so you'll have much to read, sorry ^^'

1) Concept
Each month a theme will be decided (by the winner of the previous challenge) and people will make 1 cover based on this theme. At the end of the month anyone on gametabs will be allowed to vote for the best cover. At the end i'll make a .zip file with all the entries, a cover with simple colors, title and logo + credit file with links to all of your youtube/soundcloud channels.

2) Rules to enter
NEW RECORDING ONLY! The song you are using MUST be put online AFTER the start of the challenge.
No length restriction.
No style or instrument restriction, it could be a guitar cover, piano cover, remix with VST, orchestral arrangement etc.
Only open for Gametabs members !
And of course your cover must fits the theme =)

3) Rules about the vote
During the last 4-5 days of the month anyone can vote (Gametabs members only), you can vote even if you didn't entered.
How to vote? You can give points to 3 songs, 1 points, 2 points and 3 points for you favorite. At the end of the vote the cover with the more points will win. You can vote on the forum or on Private Message with the organizer (me, for this time).

4) What do i win?
The winner will chose the theme of the next challenge and his video/soundcloud will be posted on the Gametabs FB page to give you extra views =)

5) Other rules
The organizer can enter to his own contest but if he ever wins, that will be the 2nd who will be the organizer of the next challenge. So this way it avoids the same person to organize over and over again!
The songs you are using for the Cover challenge can be used for the Gametabs main albums too!
You can't vote for yourself.
It's not a problem if 2 people cover the same song.

Okay i think i said pretty much everything about the rules... Do you have any questions ? ^^

THE THEME IS... NINTENDO 64!
As N64 finished 2nd of the vote for our next album i thin it's agood idea to use it =)
So you can enter with ANY song from ANY game on the N64!
I remind you that after the FF8 album we'll do a Platform Game Album (in September) ! So you ever do a song from a platform game you'll be able to use it as your "already recorded song joker" for the Platform Album =)

Good luck ^^

Gotta admit, I'm interested in giving this a go xD I don't know if I will be able to, though. I'm pretty swamped with a shit-ton of musical stuff. But I will definitely try to get this in... as well as a song for the FF8 cover album... aaaaaand the 68th tune contest when it's announced on top of the other stuff I have to do xD MUSIC IS LIFE!

Music is life :D Anyway, you

Is there a good way to submit my final choice for the month? I did something for fun as a scratch, a mashup of Super Mario 64's Road to Bowser and Bowser Battle. BUT if I don't finish a better song in time I'd want to use it: https://soundcloud.com/swiggles1987/road-to-bowser-battle-super-mario-64

2) What do you mean by "your final choice" ? If it's the finale song you wanna use, just do it as you did :D
3) I wish you can finish something else because the rules said the song must be uploaded AFTER the start of the contest. I know your is just 6 days old but for this event we're trying to really stick to the rules and deadline ^^

Solid and heavy track by the way :o
Nice ending solo, impressive skills!

I think I'm going to have to sit this one out and probably the FF8 album, too. I could try to cram them both into my plans, but that would no doubt mean a loss in quality and I don't really want that.

Wow even the FF8 album?

Alright, I think I have a good idea. Just in case people are trying to avoid doing the same songs, I'll say I'm working on a Mario Kart 64 Medley, it'll have all the songs that don't get covered that I love most. Title, menus, post-race, and more :D

But i'd be really happy to have a little something from you on the FF8 album :)

FORGOT TO SAY: Featuring are allowed.
Collabs should be avoided to do not devise the number of entries by 2

Hmmm... I'm gonna pick Sinking old Sanctuary from Castlevania Legacy of Darkness (which is originally from Bloodlines and also appeared on Circle of the Moon [don't you love when Konami does that?!]).

I love all of Ms. Yamane work, and tho Bloodlines certainly isn't as good of a game as its SNES counterpart, the OST is simply brilliant!

Legacy of Darkness might as well be in the top worst Castlevania games of all time, but I'm actually really fond of it's version of this theme.

Here is my entry for the Cover Challenge #1: https://soundcloud.com/swiggles1987/mario-kart-64-medley

I did a medley of 7 songs from the N64 classic Mario Kart 64, and really got some motivation back since I've been essentially on break from making videos for covers. PLUS I got to cover the Title Screen, Menu Screen, and Victory songs that aren't often covered. There's rock, electronic, metal, country, and fusion throughout, so I hope it's not too wacky :D

Dude this medley is sooo cool

You definitely should make a youtube video for it.
I find really cool that it's not too brutal too, metal but not toooo much ^^
There is a kind of prog-rock organ in the backing, i really like that :D

Thanks, I unfortunately for a bit of tech/Youtube reasons just can't release any videos for a while but it lets me create way more songs. I actually used a lot of MIDI to learn the music and converted it to organ, yep! I mixed the rhythm guitars lower and left the bass a bit more dry than distorted too.

But you can enter with a song you were working on before as long as you haven't posted it on internet before the contest :)
