i havent really been paying attention to the ongoing story you guys had going but since the last contest broke off from it i will too

you can be a modern hunter or victorian or even a beast of prey i dont care! you have full liberty to interpret this however you need to in order to get yourself into the mindset of a hunter and make a theme about it

1 minute minimum

lets say it ends on 6/12 for now

Oooh, this is gonna be fun

We can always revisit the story idea anytime. Someone who wants to just needs to win and make it the next contest, no continuity needed. This one should be fun though.

Here's my entry! I call it ~Song of the Tiger~

It's the Song of the Tiger, it's the thrill of the hunt!
Rocking out to the challenge of our rivals
As the last known guitarist plucks his strings in the night,
He's regaling us all with the Song... *ba-dum ba-dum ba-dump!* of the Tiger~

Just kidding! lol I couldn't resist after I thought of it. I wish I had Vocaloid software...

@Clan - That was my intention because the exact same thing happened to me, haha

Thought about the hunt not being about speed or aggression...just the quite stalk of the hunt.

Wow that's nice Sharp Rain! It makes me feel like I'm the one being hunted! That's a nice take on the theme ;)

I have no idea what I'm going to do for mine yet... I keep thinking I want to do something fast and thrashy, though.

Thank you :) thats really

Haven't made much progress here yet. The one good riff I thought of turned out to be plagiarized from a Nevermore song lol.

Here's mine:

Mine is finished. I call it Eye of the Wolf: Blooddrunk in the Moonlight
Soundcloud link

Meant to sound like a werewolf's hunt under a full moon. Rampaging, gorging on prey, conflicted on what he's done and become and then again giving in to the bloodlust. At least that's what I was thinking about when I was writing lol. I added some 'heartbeat stutters' in the bass for a sense of adrenaline.

Also I figured I'd post the midi as well, since you did that last time, Jacob. Seems like a good idea and it can't hurt.

Thrill of the Hunt

Sorry for being late. The final idea took until Friday to come up with, and I'm running out of time so here is the concept from start to finish.

Stalk, lie in wait, chase. Nothing sinister about this one.

oh dang its the 12th already,

How about a semi-situation-appropriate sing along for those of us waiting for Jacob to judge the entries?

You've never listened to Maiden Lloyde? That's actually super impressive but also a bit unfortunate, highly recommend the "Number of The Beast" album. Easily one of the greatest metal albums of all time.

Edit: Oh also if you do end out checking them out should listen to "Dance of Death" by Iron it's my personal fav. :)

you guys i totally didnt forget about you i've just been super busy, yes thats it, i didnt forget you at all! im starting the reviews right now and all commentary will be in real time:

sharprain:
this is neat! i feel like the hunt is for an...is that sound you breathing musically or something? oh dang that guitar just kicked in and its pretty awesome! this definitely is one of my favorites so far.

mechakrauser:
this intro reminds me of that werewolf game on nes, im totally not just saying that because you said werewolf either or maybe i am i cant tell. i like the tension i feel like the thing being hunted instead of the werewolf. oh reading your post i see im supposed to be a conflicted werewolf sorry! the speed of that acoustic guitar and how high up it is is really making me think a bass drum should be added to the mix!

avaruu:
hahaha this sounds like an old western or some desert chase so far you dirty dog you! is this you playing or some fancy gp6 wav export thing? its pretty good! what are those desert fox things called? desert fox! thats it thats what im thinking of

lloyd:
tribe! seriously though at first it made me think of /maybe im a lion/ from ff8. is that a duduk?! damn i love those things. aww its over

am i supposed to rank you guys or something man i dont want to do that, they were all really good! my favorite one was sharprain's you guys. sorry if this is hard to read i dont think i made any typos but im drunk so who knows

Haha don't sweat it. I was completely joking with that self-proclamation for the next contest idea anyway, just like I was with all the others :P I just said it because I thought it was funny lol. The title for my entry was also actually just me subtly continuing my Eye of the Tiger joke :3

I actually have a really good contest idea that I will use if I ever do win one :D

Congrats Sharprain! I'm so ready for the next one!

I really like Lloyde's entry too. I was thinking of doing something tribal-sounding like that but I don't have any idea how to in Guitar Pro. And I absolutely cannot do drums x_x

Because of timing, for the next one did you all want to start from next week? (start of the month?) ...(I swear it isnt because I need to think of an idea I promise!)

I'm cool with that. I'm actually going camping next weekend. Gonna get drunk for the first time since new years and set off some fireworks haha. I'd thought it would be cool to sit at the campfire and come up with songs for the next contest, but then again that probably wouldn't happen anyway lol

I'm so worn out from making tabs and need a break. My theme for next weekend is totally going to be Thrills of the Drunk! lolol
I just hope we don't get rained out.

Nope your not imagining it the site is loading slower, if memory serves the last time this happened it was spam filling up the storage space for the site or bots on a rampage.

Might send Ash a PM and see if he can check it out.
