Love the Fonz! :tup

There was just something about Believe. I didn't mind the vocals, and the music in the song seemed full. In fact, I liked the vocals. He took a real Alice Cooper approach and it resonated with me.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

You should give the TSO version of Believe a go.  THAT version is to die for.  Tim Hockenberry lays down a monster vocal performance.

These rounds are running faster than I expected.  If I go the 'hero in the making' route, I might not be able to send until the weekend - the dude only has two of his songs on YT, but I might not be using those.

Gonna make that Sava playlist.  The Round 1 playlist was pretty sweet.

If you're out and about it makes it easier for you Chad - email me an mp3 and I will covert it to flv and upload to Youtube for you and PM the link to Tim.

Thanks for the offer, but being out is the problem - I don't have my personal laptop, so no way to get the mp3.  What I've been doing is uploading to Google Drive, then sharing the link with Tim.

No worries - if you think there's a chance I might have it/can access it , then PM what you're after.

I hope that's good thing. I don't want to bore anyone. Nothing worse than sending a song and waiting 3 weeks for results.

Yes, yes it was! :metal

Seems I get half of the entries for each round right away. I start right in on those so I only have to learn 4 or 5 at a time instead of 9 all at once.
I'm not waiting for all to come in before I begin listening.
But there's no advantage either way. ALL get equal listens.

Agreed... my comment was based on the original expectation it would be a week between rounds.  It's a fine line between rounds being too fast vs too long.  IMO, you're right in the sweet spot of that line.  So long as participants submit in a timely manner, 4-5 days is deal ... again, my opinion.

And I know I'm a culprit right now of not being timely - travel is throwing a wrench into things.

As I think Brent said in the tracker thread, he'll likely break the interwebz in trying to post that.

Damn, this is going quick, good stuff.

To open up Savatage for you Tim means we've all done our job, regardless.  Savatage really are just an incredible band, and so underrated.

Alright, let's see if I can come up with something now before I head off to bed.

Sorry if this has already been clarified, but since you mentioned Schenker in the round description, I'm guessing you're not looking speficially for instrumental guitar songs, or are you?

I'm looking for instrumentals, yes. Michael Schenker has a few strictly instrumental albums, and I have those. But that's it.

No rush. I feel like the instrumentals may take a bit to sink in anyway.

I have 6 of the 9 entries so far and listened to each of them twice last night.

Some really cool stuff.

After two themed rounds, I'm looking forward to the Open Round.

Yeah! You guys have really dictated the pace.
For the first two rounds, I probably listened to each song 7 or 8 times.

Wow... you went back to dig that one up!  And given the situation of that one, it was something I regret saying.  But yeah... usually I get pretty worked up around slow roulettes.  Given current course and speed, no chance of this happening here.

So I'm just waiting for the travelling salesman, but everything I have received is SPECTACULAR! Seriously, this is one hell of a playlist. Way beyond what I expected. I have no idea how I'm going to score this.

I have 10 hour days at work the next 3 days, but then I'm off Tues and Wed. Results will be up Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning at the latest I would expect.

If I could have Round 4 (Open Round) submissions by next Wednesday, that would be great. You can send anytime.

For round 4 I am switching it up and taking a chance

I'll be sending a song from an obscure Canadian rock band; however, the song itself is my all time favorite "classic rock" song.

The Chadster will be very familiar with it, but I doubt many others on the forum would be (including Brent)
