    Well I guess I'll just go ahead and do it. I've recorded everything except vocals and drums so......yeah
    I cant believe I haven't found this forum years ago, and I'm really enjoying making this cover.
    BTW Attackthemind, that was an amazing entry. :D

    Alright, I did it. It's very sloppy but I did it. I tried to layer it to make it sound ATSy but it was too much with the drums so I just left that out. Am I singing!!?? Nah, whispering to keep you guys from being bored. OK, hope you like it....I didn't.

    EDIT: I muted a loop for the first one so I uploaded it again and adjusted the volume.

    Maybe I'll win next time ;)

    I threw in the chord progression for 2 songs off of ATS in it. Can you guys tell which ones?

    You're way too harsh on yourself dude. It's not bad, and it's certainly not William Hung-esque terribad. No worries.

    Well, its not THAT bad but it certainly is quite bad. It's just that I expected to do better and really messed up on the transitions between the chorus/solo/chorus. I guess I just added way too many layers of piano and guitar. Plus, having no "real" vocals I'd have to make it so that you don't concentrate on the strings leading the song because it would get very dull and boring so I tried to make it multilayered and "deep". In short, I tried to Linkin Parksify it and failed. They make it look sooo easy....

    Anyway Derek, I saw the vid where you gave mike the try the ketchup t-shirt. YOU'RE SO LUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!

    EDIT: You didn't mention if you caught the chord progressions of any other ATS songs.

    I didn't get to give it as detailed of a listen as I wanted to cause I have dinner soon. But honestly, even if you don't win this month...you got next month to enter which will be a remix month again so you dont have to worry about adhering to acoustic etc.

    I've posted this before on this forum but now for this purpose. This is entirely my voice and a Dr. Pepper can. It's... interesting? haha :]

    This is my new favorite entry. It used to be Attackthemind's but this is just amazing. The solo sounds sweet, I didn't expect that.

    Great vocals. I just wish the recording quality was a bit cleaner. Brilliant take on the song, though!

    Thanks, guys. As far as the quality goes? I only have the built in mic on my laptop and audacity to work with so sorry about that.

    I have my song picked out. I'm actually feeling the creativity starting to flow, so I might finish this in time. It depends how frustrated I get with it.

    Great entries! I will not be entering this month. I have to journey to Panera to get internet and I'm deep into song writing and practice with my band so outside music is kind of shut out for now.

    Sorry, but this is a cover-only month. We plan to do mash-ups at some point in the future.
