Challenges?? 

What happened to the challenges?
I haven't been around much until recently but noticed that challenges don't seem to happen any more? Why is that? Flame just died?

I never took part but always enjoyed listening and following the progress and always thought I'd get involved one day.

So what happened to them?

I'm always potentially keen. I'm getting my guitar fixed this weekend so will be keen to play more again. Although having a young baby makes any practice time hard to come by.... Let alone enough time to practice for a challenge.

But keen nonetheless

It just needs someone to organise it. Lenny organised the last one that actually worked with the help of Rui and John Walsh. It's a fair bit of work and comitment to make that sort of thing a success. I'm sure if someone put a new one together there would be people getting involved.

I'd participate depending on what it is.
The last one I tried to be democratic and let the people add their two cents on the design of it and it was tough. Someone just has to take the initiative to put it together.

I would be interested as I need other people to hear my crappy playing which will hopefully get me to step it up a notch.

RE: Challenges?? (in reply to Dudnote

Maybe theres a way of simplifying the format for less work for organizers.

It all seemed to get super detailed and complicated.

Do away with all that different judging criteria, and just get one score. People listen to the ten entries and say. This one is the best.

I dunno.

If the entries are uploaded to a folder on a filesharing service, everyone can participate, even the organizers.

RE: Challenges?? (in reply to Stu

This kind of thing was more fun (less competitive) than the challenges:

Could try something like this again, or compile into a single track?

RE: Challenges?? (in reply to Ricardo

I haven't tested this but it should solve all the compile/sync issues.

Looks simple to use.

RE: Challenges?? (in reply to Ricardo

I totally missed that. Did it work out??

Maybe in this modern age of skype/FaceTime stability we could actually have a real time juerga... Just over video

RE: Challenges?? (in reply to Ricardo

Thanks for the thumbs up Ricardo. Yeah it was fun, I think the only reason I never put the final track together was I wanted to redo my own parts but never got round to it and as someone mentioned towards the end of that thread, the final track wasn't really as important as the process.

Perhaps we could kick that thread back to life at some point in the future. Although I don't have a computer right now, so if anyone wants to take over techie side of things then go for it.

@Stu - there were some nice uploads in the juerga thread, you should check them out.

@Rui - not sure I looked at that one. Could be worth looking in to.

RE: Challenges?? (in reply to Dudnote

I always wanted to try something more original like ..

everyone compose there own Sevillanas round ...thats kinda easy as it repeats itself a few times and the beginning is like the end etc ....
However , you still gotta be inventive , and in any key you like ...skys the limit so long as it fits the right ammount of bars


Anyway,.... you get enough of them in and then pick the best 4 to make one completley original ForoSevillanas

maybe get some one good here to record it as a complete piece


I think it could be neeto .. and you end up with something playable and useable as well .....
